GQ performs on "The Prairie Home Companion."

Voices-only Wednesday: ‘How Great Thou Art’ (Prairie Home Companion version)

Plus 'Mary Did You Know?' 'Do You Hear What I Hear?' and advice for riding on subways.

Welcome to Voices-only Wednesday, when we scour the Internet to bring you the best a cappella videos we can find.

Let’s start with a group from the Baltimore area called GQ. (It stands for “Girls’ Quartet,” not, y’know, the magazine.) The group recently did three a cappella songs during an episode of “A Prairie Home Companion” with Garrison Keillor, including this rendition of “How Great Thou Art.” Make sure to watch all the way to the end. They really do great on the last verse. 

Go here to listen to the rest of the show, including two other songs from GQ, “Crabbuckit” and “You Are My Sunshine.”

Also, for some great a cappella and an important message about how Minnesotans feel about riding on subways, make sure to listen to the audio on the item titled “MTA.”

Next up, here’s a great rehearsal clip of “Mary, Did You Know?” from a church in Alabama. (Seems like they’re referencing the Pentatonix version we featured last year.)

Finally, here’s a medley of Christmas favorites from last year by a group out of Richmond, Va., called Resound. Evidently, this video went viral after pop star Ariana Grande tweeted it to her fans.

VIRAL HOLIDAY VIDEO: This group from Richmond just got back from performing in New York City on national television! This holiday medley went viral after a major recording artist tweeted about the group.
