The Tabernacle Choir has made it something of a tradition to release a video story behind a classicly arranged hymn of Christmas. This version of Silent Night is no different.
The almost eight-minute video tells the story of a grieving police officer, played by actor Kevin Sorbo, who finds his regular beat on Christmas Eve interrupted as he and a diverse group of strangers help a young couple with the birth of their baby.
Sorbo is best-known for playing the title role in the TV show “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” as well as his roles in the films “Let There Be Light” and “God’s Not Dead.”
“‘Silent Night’ is one of the most cherished Christmas carols of all time,” Sorbo said in a press release. “And this video’s story showing how people of diverse backgrounds can work together in unity is so needed in the world today. Putting all of that together with the heavenly music of The Tabernacle Choir was something I absolutely loved doing.”
