Award-winning tenor Nathan Pacheco has toured the world featured alongside world-class artists such as Yanni, Katherine Jenkins, and Placido Domingo. In all of his travels across South America, through Europe and Asia, and across America, Nathan often includes spiritually rooted and uplifting songs in his repertoire. This album is a collection of his favorite songs that connect with those spiritual moments from his performances across the world. These songs take the listener on a beautiful journey with classic hymns such as “Be Thou My Vision,” soaring Italian epics like “Nella Fantasia,” and modern classics such as “Forever,” by Kari Jobe. Performing with intimate acoustic backing and often featuring piano and cello, Nathan’s desire with this album is to help people reach higher, to feel deeper spiritual connection, and to find peace through songs that life the soul.

In Emilee’s opinion:
WOW! Nathan Pacheco has one powerful voice that I could listen to over and over again. I absolutely love this cd and am grateful for the opportunity to review it. Nathan has such a beautiful and sweet voice. It is so soothing and soft. I was crying as I listened to his songs. They really touched my heart. I felt like I was home. Oftentimes when I feel the spirit, I feel like I’m home with my Heavenly Father and I just want to stay there forever. It is a special feeling and I’m grateful that my heart allows me to feel it. It is the same feeling when I go to the temple. I can’t imagine my life without the gospel.
The songs that touched my heart were Forever, His Love, How Great Thou Art, and Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing. I wasn’t too keen on the foreign language songs, however, they still were sweet to listen to. His Love can heal and will lead us to where we need to go. If your testimony is lacking and needs a boost, I definitely recommend that one listens to Nathan and the words in the lyrics. The words really are so powerful. Sometimes I wish I could feel the Savior’s embrace in a physical way. But, I feel it inside. He tells me in my heart and mind. I look forward to when I can stand face to face with Him. I wish we could all understand the love our Savior can have for each of us. His hands reach out to us to bring us home. We need to reach out and follow Him. I want to thank Nathan for his talent and for bringing the spirit into my home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
