We all know that music can communicate with us like it has its own special language.

Music has been a significant part of our societies for as long as humans have been able to listen. It has the power to evoke strong emotions, inspire, and influence. Despite changing styles, there are timeless songs that continue to have a lasting impact and are enjoyed even years after their creation.

Music, and songs in particular, offer a unique perspective with each artist’s interpretation. A prime example of this can be seen in the song “You Raise Me Up,” which was originally released in 2001 and later covered by artists like Josh Groban in 2003 and Westlife in 2005.

It is likely that you are familiar with the song – if not, you should definitely give it a listen – and the fact that it has been covered by more than 100 artists speaks to its enduring popularity.

However, among the various versions of this popular song, it’s possible that many readers are unfamiliar with one of the most hauntingly beautiful renditions, performed by Brigham Young University’s Vocal Point.

BYU Vocal Point, a nine-member acapella group, was founded in 1991 by former BYU students Dave Boyce and Bob Ahlander. The group quickly rose to fame on campus and even placed fifth in the third season of NBC’s The Sing-Off, as reported.

The group secured a record deal with Decca Gold, Universal Music Group’s classical label, in 2018. Jason Bromley, a member of the group, expressed, “We are regular college students achieving remarkable feats.”
