The first HOLY WATERS homemade video fest

I love to sing “Down to the River to Pray,” the old gospel song that was popularized in the Coen Brothers’ movie O Brother Where Art Thou? (as sung by Alison Krauss). Apparently I’m not the only one. Here’s my curated mini-fest of the coolest homemade “Down to the River to Pray” videos, courtesy of YouTube. I’m captivated by the sincerity of all these young women…and the final video (with Krauss’s vocals) reminds me of those grainy French experimental films from the 1920s.

The 19th-century gospel song “Down to the River to Pray” is in the public domain. All videos © the artists and embedded from YouTube.com.

    Did you see this TED post about the virtual choir. I’m playing all these at the same time, but it’s getting hooked up in my computer.
