Watch the latest incredible video from The Piano Guys, who are filming beautiful music in front of all seven wonders of the world.
Only one month after their cover of Disney's Frozen made a splash on YouTube, the Piano Guys have revealed the latest in their line of unique cover versions - this time, a religious pairing of the well-known hymn, How Great Thou Art, masterfully woven with Morricone's poignant oboe tune from The Mission.
Following their video filmed on the Great Wall of China, the duo have now taken their music to Brazil as part of their quest to perform at all seven Wonders of the World. This time, the pair are performing near the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil, in front of the 275 waterfalls that make up the Iguazu Falls.
Posting their video to YouTube, they said: "As we considered what piece of music would be worthy of such incomparable locations we looked to songs that have been composed or used to praise Jesus Christ, for whom the statute was built and who billions believe created all the natural wonders of this world."
Despite their deeply held religious beliefs, The Piano Guys are keen to inspire everyone with their music, whatever their belief system or opinions.
"This music video is not meant to exclude anyone that does not believe in God," they said. "We hope that it instead promotes spiritual feelings that can be felt by all - gratitude for a beautiful Earth, for life, and for joy."
