Back in 2009 I came across a rendition of Amazing Grace sung by a gospel-choir-like group.

The second verse is sung a cappella by the bass in the group.

In the line

"How precious did that grace appear"

he drops an octave and sings really, really low.

I lost my mp3 copy of the song when a hard drive crashed in 2010 and I have been unable to find it ever since.

UPDATE:

After some more digging I found this video. I'm pretty sure this is the person (Wes McKinzie) that sang verse 2 and it might even be the same group as well. The mp3 I had was a studio recording though (if I remember correctly).

  • If you have bought that mp3 online, you should be able to download it again. – dfhwze Nov 11 at 11:58

    Unfortunately for your search, this is one of the most recorded and performed songs of all times, so finding a particular rendition can be a needle in a haystack. Can you give any more details about the group, where you first heard it, how you obtained your mp3, etcetera? – Chris Sunami Nov 11 at 14:07
  • @dfhwze, imagine paying for an mp3 back in 2009 ... good one. ;-) – jhhwilliams Nov 12 at 2:01
  • @ChrisSunami, but my needle sings very low. Unfortunately I've put everything I remember into the question. – jhhwilliams Nov 12 at 2:31

BINGO!

Track 5 on Acappella Southern. From the album description:

We then topped it all off with a brand new recording of “Amazing Grace” that will have you smiling all day.

Here is the Deezer link to the song.
