Gospel songs are frequently covered by a variety of artists. Their soul and deep meaning attract a lot of listeners and the songs usually have a great message. The song ‘It is Well’ is not only a popular quote, but also one of these popular hymns covered by musicians of every genre.
Sure there are big name artists like country singer Alan Jackson or pop singer Lauren Daigle that have sang the song, but one simple YouTube cover stands out among the rest.
Youtuber Acapeldridge, also known as G. Michael Eldridge, sings the song beautifully. Whats even more amazing is that he does it all a cappella, and his backup singers are himself.
With technology today, this man has managed to record himself singing four different parts to this classic song. His voice is amazing- all four of them. From the highest to lowest note he nails every sound that the song requires so well that you want to sing along with him.
Whether its the falsetto or deep baritone sound, Eldridge hits them all, and if you’re paying attention you can pick them all out. Without watching the video, it sounds as though its a small mens choir singing the classic hymn, but this YouTuber manages to nail every part.
Eldridge was always interested in music and began singing with his family from a young age. At first it was solely in church, but after he started college at Purdue he joined a Glee club and discovered his true passion. With the help of a friend he discovered an app that allowed him to layer different videos side by side, creating the effect that he has in “It is Well”. From that, his channel was born and is full of videos similar to this, each one more popular than the last.
This particular video has received thousands of views, likes, and comments. Everyone watching is in awe of his talent. The comments aren’t just admiring his talent, but also telling what the song has done for them and how it has inspired them in their personal lives to keep going or push through a tragedy.
“My greatest desire is to serve my God with the gift that He has given me: Today I can sing and so I will. If I can sing tomorrow, I’ll sing tomorrow too. But the highest goal for which I fight daily is is to sing praises to my God, in His presence, in Heaven. What a day it will be!” Eldridge says, describing his relationship with singing and the Lord.
