If the Singing Contractors sound familiar to you, it may be because we told you before about them before when we shared this video with you of the contractors— Aaron and Josh– belting the classic hymn “Farther Along” in a home they were constructing. Now the lovable, down-to-earth duo is taking on another classic, the Christmas tune “Mary Did You Know.”
We’ve shared a couple of covers of this emotional ballad to Jesus’s mother with you before. There was this gorgeous one-man cover in which a single singer created “duplicates” of himself to sing stunning harmonies, and there was this cover by the a capella group Voctave, sung with the help of Mark Lowry, the original songwriter. But the version below– with just two voices, no editing, and an empty house– is the most pure and simple cover yet… and it’s still stunning!
In the comments section, someone asked if the video was an act. With voices like these, these guys can’t possibly be everyday folks like you and me, right? They have to be trained, experienced singers; the “contractors” thing has to just be acting. It’s a fair question! But the Singing Contractors replied, saying that if that were true, they “would be terrible actors!” They go on to explain, “We are just trying to encourage others, and we are honored to be the hands and feet of Jesus!”
Hear their incredible voices in the video below and share!
Here is a song that we have had several request for.. Mary Did you know
