Choir President Ron Jarrett said, "YouTube has made the Choir boundless."
"Before the launch of our channel," he continued, "there was no way to listen to Music and the Spoken Word if you couldn't tune in live. Many of our fans couldn't listen because of time zone differences or scheduling conflicts. Today our music is accessible for everybody, anywhere and at any time."
So far fans have left comments on the choir's YouTube page in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, German and French.
