WATCH: John Mayer Opens Concert in New Zealand by Singing “How Great Thou Art” After Deadly Mosque Shootings

A video of singer John Mayer emotionally singing the iconic hymn “How Great Thou Art” while at a recent concert in New Zealand surfaced this week.

“Thank you for coming out under such heavy circumstances. It means a lot to me,” Mayer said at the top of a show he did last month. The singer was referring to the deadly mosque shootings that took place in Christchurch in New Zealand.

Mayer kicked off his tour in the Oceania country just days after the tragic massacre, which claimed the lives of 50 people and where dozens were injured at two separate mosques holding Friday prayers.

The Grammy-award winning singer performed “How Great Thou Art” and was joined by New Zealand artist Bella Kalolo and her kapa haka group.

“Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee/How great Thou art, how great Thou art,” Mayer prayerfully sang as he played his guitar.

Kalolo then joined in and repeated the first verse and chorus of the song in their Maori native language.
