Y'know, if you released a sneak peek of one of the holiday songs you did at Harrah's on 8/17, it would help get the word out about the special starting to air in 3 weeks. Just sayin'! ;)

Having watched the first PBS special over and over again, I can't wait until the new one is aired on PBS in December. It's been 10 months since I've seen SNC live, not having made it to Atlantic City. I've watched a lot of the fans uploads to You Tube from different shows, but it will be wonderful to see the show in it's entirety, professionally filmed. Thanks for the sneak preview. It is truly a beautiful rendition and reinforces the reasons I am proud to be a Chaser!

S: It was okay, I guess. ;) Actually, I just watched it again & was thinking how fun it is to watch each of the guys when they are just singing, without choreography. First, it takes me back to when I first saw them, when they basically just sang. Also, it's interesting to me to see each SNC member getting so into what he is singing. Without planned choreo, they each have their own... gestures? mannerisms? Not sure the exact right word, but you can probably understand what I'm saying. Last point (for this post, at least!): I love Jerome's energy & intensity at 2:38.

Hey, Eileen -- did you like this? :-p

Ha- Julie- not until I read your comment did I realize I was basically saying "I hear your voice singing 'I hear your voice' " when I posted the other day. I'm wondering if it's just DR or if Don is also singing that. I thought I saw Dan & DR singing it on a 2010 video from Kary. On this one I can def. see DR, but Don is in shadow for that part of the song. MAN, I can't WAIT for the whole special to come out!!!

Seriously. December??? I can't stop watching this!!! And, everyone has already said it, but it bears repeating.... you guys have made this song even more amazing than we already knew it was! "I hear your voice" DR! I'm not sure that I realized this was going on in the song before. Super job on the mix! I'm so happy to be able say I was part of this event. It truly was wonderful!!

Right back at you Mike and SNC...just like a prayer, your voice(s) can take me there!...just like an angel sighing! Me thinks you are singing about yourself!!! Mike I am so very proud of you. You have raised the bar on your own talents and to hear you stand out with all of the other singing going on, with such strength and sweetness, nuances, variety, vocal abilities and tone ...is truly heavenly. I also love that you held that one note so long (Tyler is not the only one who can do that, eh?!) ...Heaven, I'm in heaven... Awesome, guys! Superfantabulous job!

I think this was a great choice for the sneak peek. As much fun as some of the other songs are that include more choreography or humor, "Like a Prayer" really showcases the thing that started it all and sets SNC apart: your voices. You all sound so perfect in this video, and the addition of the choir enhances your sound really well.

I guess because of the professional mixing, I am hearing all kinds of things in this song that I never noticed before, such as the baritones singing "I hear your voice" over & over starting at around the 1:13 mark of the vid. It all sounds amazing.

Just watched again- got chills! Thanks again for giving us a sneak peek- makes waiting for the full special & Fall Tour a little easier.

Love the fact the guys chose this song for the performance! My favorite of all their music and it gives me chills every time I hear or see them perform it! Thanks guys for highlighting this song! You always do an awesome job, but this one is spectacular! Thanks for the heads up and will be watching my two PBS stations for this! Eileen is right---fantastic!
EileenR's picture

YES!!!!! This is sooooooooo fantastic! Thanks so much for the sneak peek at the PBS special. "Like a Prayer" was a great choice. Watching this tonight brought back all the excitement of being there in the audience that night- and I think I saw the back of my head- woo hoo! :) Extremely excited to see the entire special and can't wait to see you when the Fall Tour stops in Baltimore!!!!!!

This is one of my favorite songs. I didn't think it was possible but you made it even better. By the end of the song I was literally in tears. I am so happy for the group that you got this opportunity and so proud to be a Chaser.

This is absolutely fantastic! Mike killed it!!! Am so looking forward to the 2 shows I'm attending in December. It's going to be a long wait, but what a great way to finish out 2011!!!! Here's to a great fall tour ahead for SNC...you guys are awesome!!!

Not to rush them through their fall tour, but does anyone know if they will be at Harrah's again next summer? My parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in the spring and I'd love to buy them tickets to go down and see them in Atlantic City (and maybe spend a few days down there).

This is incredibly beautiful!!! How did you make something already so amazing even better?! My mind is boggled. The blend is gorgeous, I can hear everybody! And thank you for keeping that single suspended note of Mike's at the end, as it's one of my favorite moments in this arrangement. I was already counting down to the Fall Tour, and I CAN'T WAIT to see this special! Congratulations, SNC!
