A choir dressed in white joined him, jumping, raising their hands in praise to God and singing backup from the pit.

One of the judges was seen singing along and by the end of the powerful performance, Cuevas' eyes were streaming tears.


Keys complimented Cuevas following his performance, saying, "I'm so proud of you, Christian. It was a beautiful, gorgeous performance."

Cuevas' cover reached the top 10 in the charts, according to Christian Today, and his performance has been viewed by over 2.6 million people.

"I am not someone who likes gospel but this brought me to tears," one person wrote. "[L]iterally i [sic]love him singing this song."

Another person wrote, "This gave me chills. The Holy Spirit in that room" while yet another posted, "Glory to God!!"


Following the performance, Cuevas took to Twitter to share, "So glad that I was able to share God with y'all."
