This impromptu performance of an Icelandic hymn is the most inspiring video you'll see today

In a meeting with some of the artists at Mercury Studios a few weeks ago, Glenn told everyone in the room they needed to listen to the Icelandic band Ásgeir. He said the music told the story of a country that had suffered tremendous financial collapse, but rising the ruin was a huge wave of creativity. Aside from Ásgeir, bands like Of Monsters and Men have taken off over the past few years. But there is an incredible new viral video making the rounds today featuring the Icelandic band Árstíðir singing an 800 year old hymn that might be the most inspiring thing you see today.

While in a train station in Wuppertal, Germany, Árstíðir gave an impromptu performance of "Heyr himna smiður" (translated as "Hear, Heaven Carpenter"), a 13th century Icelandic hymn by Kolbeinn Tumason.

The video was first published in September 2013, and has since accumulated over 2.9 million views.

Commenter Michael Baker wrote, "I dare you to listen to this with your eyes closed and nothing else going on and not be transported."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
