Watch: John Mayer Performs Beloved Hymn During Recent Concert

Singer-songwriter John Mayer opened a recent concert in New Zealand with a powerful rendition of “How Great Thou Art.”

“Thank you for coming out under such heavy circumstances. It means a lot to me,” Mayer said at the start of the mid-March show, which came not long after the deadly mosque shooting in Christchurch.

Mayer sang the Christian hymn alongside a group of local New Zealand artists, who sang the prayerful song in their native language, Māori.

On March 15, New Zealanders endured the worst massacre on their soil — outside of wartime — in more than 200 years. At least 49 people were killed during attacks on two mosques, leaving dozens of others critically injured.

The attacks began during Friday prayers, when each mosque was full of worshipers.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said her nation’s values would not be shaken by the deadly attacks, but described the day of the shooting as “one of New Zealand’s darkest days.”

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded in the immediate aftermath of the attack, saying, in part, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. We stand in solidarity with the people of New Zealand and their government against this vicious act of hate.”

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
