Each of the 12 men grasped their own microphone and turned around dramatically as the lights dimmed. One single instrument playing a familiar tune would have the audience immediately recognize which song they were about to sing. The piano joined in as the spotlight hit just one man standing in the middle of them all. The first three words were sung, and at this moment the entire audience knew that this was not going to be just another version of arguably Josh Groban’s most famous song of all time. With the dynamics of 12 men, the power of their performance was limitless.
This vocal group called 12 Tenors delighted the audience with their harmonies. Chills ran down the spines of those sitting to enjoy this song, but while it continued, they were all waiting for that one moment. Several of the men took turns for a solo with the background singers doing a phenomenal job. It started out with that slow tempo, allowing the song to increase in its glory. Each of their voices were just as flawless as the others, but soon enough, they would all join in at once and blow them all away.
Their voices boomed from the stage straight out to the audience in an unforgettable way. Listen as they take you to a whole new place of freedom, encouragement, and power singing “You Raise Me Up” in the video below.
This lady from Stout, Colorado works at Horsetooth Inn and RV Park and recently her tiny gift shop had some unexpected visitors that not only made Lori’s day, but ours as well.
As she was casually doing her job, a doe entered the place and took a thorough look at every single product in the shop. Slowly browsing through the aisles, it was obvious the animal was having a fun time.
However, no matter how sweet and unusual this encounter was, what happened later was the real surprise that made everyone burst out laughing.
First, the deer only stood at the shop’s door and was hesitant whether to enter or not. But she eventually decided to give it a go.
The first thing that caught this doe’s attention were the cool sunglasses.
After that she stood by the potato chips. We aren’t sure whether she wanted to try it or not.
One person who was at the shop at that time got to say ‘hi’ to the cute animal.
As Lori told 9NEWS, after she believed it was about time for her to say goodbye to her visitor, she coaxed the deer out using some peanut bars.
But, nothing could prepare Lori for the real surprise. It looked as though the deer loved the shop so much that she decided to bring her whole family in.
“Later, I was in the office checking the store stock,” she said. “I walked out and there she was with her twins and a lone buck that she nursed. I just used my phone to snap the pics. I laughed so hard!”
This beautiful encounter reminds us how lucky some people are to be living near animals of this kind. Although it’s not that uncommon for deer and humans to interact, knowing that the residents of Stout are mainly deer, this encounter is still one of the most unusual we’ve seen.
