The Mormon Tabernacle Choir launched its new YouTube channel on Tuesday, October 30th.  The new channel includes performances of traditional hymns that you'd expect from the Tabernacle Choir, but also a new music video featuring soloist Alex Boyé, shot in what was once a slave trade fortress on the coast of Ghana.

The new channel will include concerts and past broadcasts of the weekly Music and the Spoken Word program.

Director Mack Wilberg says the channel gives the choir the chance to know who's watching and listening.

"We do think we will find a new audience," Wilberg tells KUER.  "The technology is such a fantastic thing right now, and being able to tap into that will be a great blessing for us."

The channel is available by searching for MormonTabChoir on YouTube.
