Just in time for Thanksgiving, the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square has released a seven-minute Christmas video that stars Kevin Sorbo (“Hercules: The Legendary Journeys”) as a police officer who helps an expectant young couple.
It’s set to choir music director Mack Wilberg’s arrangement of “Silent Night.”
The choir also announced Wednesday that those hoping for tickets to its sold-out Christmas concerts Dec. 13–15 can enter a sweepstakes by answering “What does Christmas mean to me?” on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and using the hashtag #AMerryLittleChristmas until Dec. 6. Winners will be announced on the choir’s social media channels on Dec. 7.
“‘Silent Night’ is one of the most cherished Christmas carols of all time,” Sorbo said in a statement. “And this video’s story showing how people of diverse backgrounds can work together in unity is so needed in the world today. Putting all of that together with the heavenly music of the Tabernacle Choir was something I absolutely loved doing.”
In addition to starring in “Hercules” and the sci-fi TV series “Andromeda,” Sorbo has drawn attention for his political and religious views in recent years. During a 2016 appearance on the Fox News Channel, he said he believes Jesus would vote for Donald Trump.
