World-renowned contemporary hymn writers Keith and Kristyn Getty recently launched a social media concert series called “Getty Family Hymn Sing” along with their young daughters and it has garnered millions of views.
The Irish couple who are known for their classic hymn “In Christ Alone” have been hosting family worship sessions with their three daughters out of their living room in Nashville, Tennessee.
“It was Kristyn’s idea because she’d been hearing about so many lonely old folks at home on their own, and friends of hers were talking about how bored their kids were,” Keith told the Christian Institute in a recent interview.
“Family Hymn Sing” worship sets are now happening at least once a week and thousands are tuning in live.
“By the end of the second week it was total chaos with 1.1 million people tuning in and before we knew it we were all on Fox News,” Keith Getty said. “It’s been a huge hit in a way we never imagined.”
The Gettys are no longer touring at present due to worldwide travel restrictions and bans on large gatherings amid the new coronavirus pandemic. In this season, the hymn writers are leaning on Jesus to help them overcome fear and maintain hope for the future.
