I have heard a thousand different renditions of “How Great Thou Art”, but the one featured below blew me out of the water! Sam Santiago is only 8 years old, but his version of this beautiful Christian hymn is worth listening to. “How Great Thou Art” was written by poet Carl Boberg in the late 1800s when he found himself in a storm. But as the storm clouds suddenly disappeared, he saw a view of the beautiful landscape motivating him to write the song.
This video was filmed before Sam rose to spotlight. He is now 13 years old. He has been singing since he was just two, but his parents took him to singing classes only when he was six. The way he captures the essence of this song is extraordinary and his voice control is really amazing for his age. Wait till you hear his passionate version!
Watch Sam’s cover in the video below and let us know if you enjoyed it through your comments!
