Over a thousand people came together for a magical Christmas video with The Piano Guys where they broke the world record for the largest live nativity scene in 2014. This magnificent feat is truly something you’ll want to watch year after year as we celebrate the birth of Christ.
Live Nativity With The Piano Guys, David Archuleta, 100o+ Strong Choir Of Angels
This momentous event drew The Piano Guys, David Archuleta, and even The Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, the three kings and four shepherds were there along with more than a thousand angels.
The sight of this one-thousand strong choir of angels is something to behold. And something you will likely never forget.
The Piano Guys perform “Angels From The Realms Of Glory” to the tune of “Angels We Have Heard on High”. It’s truly the perfect hymn to mark this magnificent Christmas spectacle.
Plus, the video itself is a reminder to focus on the true meaning of Christmas – Jesus Christ.

Largest Live Nativity Took 4 Weeks
There was a lot of heavy lifting and organizing to make such a feat happen. The living nativity went from an idea to reality in just four weeks.
In fact, so many people showed up for the live nativity that Rock Canyon Park in Provo, Utah became a “concourse of angels.”
“There’s so many people out there that would really like to share with the world the true meaning of Christmas,” event producer Derral Eves said. “Its’ not about materialism; it’s really about Jesus Christ. I think this was just a bold statement we wanted to make.”
Not only did they break a world record, but the result is a beautiful thing to watch and hear.
Angels dance across the park in glorious form, providing the perfect environment and backdrop to the manger where Jesus was born.
Multi-faith organization The Radiant Foundation ran the entire event.
It’s clear why The Piano Guys, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and American Idol winner David Archuleta knew this was something they needed to be involved with.
Live Nativity With The Piano Guys Takes World Record
1,039 volunteers came together in 2014 to make this video and break a world’s record. The previous record holder for a live nativity involved only 898 people.
The Piano Guys have released some beautiful Christmas music in the past. With just a piano and a cello, these men create some of the most soul stirring holiday music.
They very much outdid themselves by teaming up with David Archuleta and a mob of angelic volunteers.
This is truly a special Christmas treat to help Christians stay focused on Christ’s birth.
