Peter Hollens and Friends
At this exclusive, interactive audio-visual performance you will be entertained by the amazing vocal talents of Peter Hollens and friends, and then voice your own encouragement for the 12 a cappella groups competing at the 4th Annual Bend A Cappella Festival as together they sing Peter’s remarkable arrangement of “You Raise Me Up.” Peter will lead and record this one-of-a-kind performance and present the world premiere of the video (including YOU) at Saturday evening’s Sing-Off!
