Here's another aspect I love about a cappella congregational singing -- if you encourage everyone to sing whole-heartedly regardless of ability, and if you invest time equipping people to sing harmony, the results can be stunning! Even small groups can produce a joyful sound that brings to mind the robust volume typical of a much greater number. Check out this video taken by Randy Lamp in Grand Cayman. Notice how the singing comes across as greater than the actual number in attendance.
The singers traveling with us invested time in learning the harmony parts to the songs before the trip. The Grand Cayman churches who participated also worked on the songs ahead of time. After the Praise & Harmony Workshop, Acappella shared an edifying concert with us. I counted multiple cell phones taping most of the concert.
Follow our ministry here on PraiseAndHarmony.com to learn of future trips. We especially need basses and altos to join us on mission trips, including Germany and England in 2015.

Three congregations of Georgetown, Grand Cayman joined together to host a Praise & Harmony Workshop in December.
This opportunity was the very first time that a Praise & Harmony congregational workshop was combined with an Acappella concert.
This particular mission trip turned out to be very special because of the singers from across the United States who joined us for this Worship Workshop.
Instead of flying to Georgetown, the Praise & Harmony singers and families met in Fort Lauderdale to board a cruise with a singular stop in Grand Cayman. The rehearsal, fellowship and worship times on the ship were priceless.
Speaking of cruises, we are finalizing plans for a singing cruise in January 2016 to feature congregational singing and a variety of concerts.
I believe that the human voice is the greatest instrument of music ever created. Harmonizing hearts and voices in praise to the Creator is the highest calling of mankind. Host a Praise & Harmony Workshop for your church and sponsor leaders to attend the Worship Leader Institute
