‘Pentatonix’ has brought a cappella music back to mainstream American music culture. Their renditions of popular songs are free of any instruments, and the group captures the essence of each song with just their voices.
The touching song ‘Prayers for this World’ showcases the group’s ability to tug on the heartstrings while performing beautifully. The five-part harmony sounds as good as ever on this song featured on their newest holiday album.

The song is featured on the album ‘Holidays Around the World,’ which features guest stars, including Meghan Trainor, Lang Lang, and The King’s Singers. Classic tunes for the holiday season like ‘Jingle Bells,’ ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,’ and ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing,’ are all part of the uplifting album.
