David Archuleta, Nathan Pacheco Offer Christmas Prayer


Although not a traditional “Christmas song,” Prayer certainly holds the perfect sentiment for the season – especially when considering recent terror attacks and escalating hate, fear and suffering throughout our world.

Our World needs prayer. And, what better time to pray than as we commemorate the birth and life of the great Creator, and Savior of this World?

Perfect timing.

[I would love to give proper Kudos to the Cellist and Pianist in this video, but – oddly – their names and credits are nowhere to be found. Let me know if you find them.]

These daily Christmas Countdown videos are really awesome. Be sure to go check out all of the days you may have missed over here (found mid-page).

Extra! The MoSop Connection

I have been privileged to perform with both of these talented men!

David Archuleta joined forces with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in December 2010 as featured guest artist for its “A Wondrous Christmas” Concert – making then 19-yr-old Archuleta the youngest star in history to headline for this annual PBS Special (released in 2011 a shortened preview is available to watch here – full production is for purchase).

To say that the Choir’s “Archuleta Concert” was a smashing success would be an understatement. The 21,000 seat Conference Center was filled to capacity all four performances, with thousands more queued outside, hoping beyond hope for a chance to see their American Idol.

And here is “My moment with David”!

Me and David - almost like a duet! Dec. 2010

Nathan Pacheco was invited as a featured guest artist during the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s “Summer Evening of Music” concert in July 2013. Don’t miss his standing ovation Nessun Dorma here, and you can watch the entire concert with the Choir, Pacheco and Lindsey Stirling here.

Merry Christmas! – MoSop


  1. What a beautiful video. I’ve heard David sing the Prayer before, with a female partner, but this time he took the female part, with Nathan singing the male part. Their voices blend and complement each others so well. Just wonderful. You know what a big David fan I am. I love his voice and his spirit. He’s just such a good example for young people today. But, not everyone knows that he’s the reason I found the MoSop blog. While signing up to try and get tickets to the “David Concert” on the MoTab Choir site, I saw a box on the side panel about other blogs I might like. And there was MormonSoprano. So, out of curiosity, I clicked on it. It was one of the best clicks of my life.
    You are so inspiring, and Heaven knows the world needs more inspiration today.

    Also, love the picture of two of my favorite people together.

    Love you, Lynne

      1. I was just looking at the Mormon.org website re:#asaviorisborn. They had a good picture of David and Nathan flanked by the pianist and cellist. The lady playing the cello looks like one of the Lowe sisters. I know Kendra Lowe, who plays piano for David quite often has several sisters who are also musicians. I think this may be one of them. I couldn’t find any mention of their names either.
