Voices-only Wednesday: ‘Let’s get together, let’s stop the fighting’ — Acappella’s message to Baltimore


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

A couple of days ago, Keith Lancaster posted a video of Acappella singing “Let’s Get Together” in Beaumont, Texas (all over Beaumont, actually. You’ll see them singing in church, in a conference room, at a hotel check-in desk … ). 

It’s a 20-year-old song, and it talks about the need for Christians to stop squabbling among themselves over petty issues. 

The lyrics have a broader meaning as well, Lancaster told The Christian Chronicle — especially as we see news of racially charged riots in Baltimore.

“I have always been burdened in the fact that other institutions — the government, education, military, businesses and other groups — have led the way in working toward racial harmony — in many cases, ahead of the church,” Lancaster said. “As you know, not only did Jesus pray for our unity, but declared that our love for each would be an identifying trait, showing that we belong to him.”

There are too many people

Who don’t know the Savior

They see our behavior

is not what is should be

So let’s get together

No more fussing and fighting

We need love and uniting

To be one family
