@It's me Barry PTX released a new single from their new Christmas album within the last couple of days. It is "Amazing Grace, My Chains are Gone version". I think it's the most beautiful song yet. I look forward to your review of it.

They are fantastic. I've been listening to PTX for years. If you want more fantastic songs, the man with the beard broke away from PTX and is going places. His voice is so beautiful and that is AVI KAPLAN. You will not be disappointed💖. BTW I just subscribed

From what I've heard, PTX got the ultimate compliment when, before he passed away, Leonard Cohen (who wrote "Hallelujah") watched and heard this video and stated that it was the best version of his song he'd ever heard. Considering that everybody and their brother has covered this song, that's a hell of a compliment.

Hi Barry, Try also Laura Bretan......'Dear Father'.....Wait for the raw power near the end of the song......and many other songs...she's the next Renata Tebaldi when she's a tad older....AND she's beautiful too! Has it all! Hope you enjoy her singing! Let us all know! Cheers, G.

When she hits the high note near the end I nearly died....tears your heart out!....She is now an established singer in South Africa.....she used her winnings from Holland's got Talent 2013 to build playgrounds for kids in the African Townships....a heart f gold! Enjoy, and let us know what you think! Cheers, G.

The first time I listened to this song WITH HEADPHONES, (because is completely necessary to listen to it with them, because of the incredible bass of one of the singers), I cried sooo hard that I couldn't stop until almost 20 or 30 min... So so so beautiful and touching

As a huge PTX fan I must say your reaction got my sub. I am always in a trance when I watch them. I saw them live a few years back and I was so dazed I stood there for a good 30 minutes after the show ended lol a concession worker went in to make sure I was ok.

They did a truly mesmerizing version. I too have heard many versions from Bocelli, Leonard cohen etc. and this is at least one of the best. in my opinion only Laura Bretan equaled or maybe even topped it so far. alnets.info/work/pbueidCWzqqkxoo/video.html

This is a song with a very complicated history that was resurrected in part when it was put in the Disney movie "Shrek". It was written by Leonard Cohen a Jewish man. So right off you can see that various Christian churches using it was a bit odd to Leonard. Please note that Avi Kaplan is also Jewish and would be well aware of Cohen's meaning in the lines he sings in Pentatonix' version. "The song is about a love that has soured and gone stale. Cohen used a lot of religious imagery, including references to some of the more notorious women in the bible (all of whom are popular figures in songs). Here's some lyric analysis: "You saw her bathing on the roof, her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you" - Bathsheba, whose husband was murdered by the king so he could have her. "She tied you to her kitchen chair, she broke your throne and she cut your hair" - Delilah, who cut off Samson's locks that held his superhuman strength. "But remember when I moved in you and the holy dove was moving too" - This could be a reference to the divine conception and Mary. The lines referring to the immaculate conception can also be interpreted as having a sexual connotation: "And every breath we drew was hallelujah." Leonard Cohen explained: "Hallelujah is a Hebrew word which means 'Glory to the Lord.' The song explains that many kinds of Hallelujahs do exist. I say: All the perfect and broken Hallelujahs have an equal value. It's a desire to affirm my faith in life, not in some formal religious way but with enthusiasm, with emotion." www.songfacts.com/facts/jeff-buckley/hallelujah

Well, until I heard this version today, I didn't think anyone could come close to Jeff Buckley's version. While I feel his version is still the best, this is nipping at his heels. I love how shocked and awed you were the whole time you watched! That was my emotion my first time hearing one of their songs.

While a great song, and their most popular video, this is actually not a good representative video, as the beat boxer never really got to do much live. I would check out their cover of "Gold", their original "Cracked", or any of their Evolution Of.... videos, such as The Evolution Of Ariana Grande! Enjoy!!

I love watching people react to Pentatonix for the first time and found your channel a couple days ago. Love your humor and vulnerability. I recommend watching their Sing Off competition performances. It is where they got their start and you can see how far they have come. They were such babies 😍. Looking forward to more videos.
