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.

I bought this CD after seeing him perform at Time Out for Women. I keep it in the car and play it whenever I'm feeling stressed, had a bad day, traffic is driving me crazy, need a spiritual lift...in other words, I play it A LOT and NEVER get tired of listening to this beautiful music. His voice, the piano and string accompaniment are a heavenly experience. It calms my soul and takes my heart and mind to a better place. Everyone needs this CD!
Fantastic!!! One of my favorite things about this CD are his selections from some of the best Christian/gospel singers on the market today. With all due respect to Ms. Jobe, his cover of Forever has a depth that her version, while great, is lacking. And his covers of Crowder's Come asYou Are and MercyMe's In Christ Alone are also deep and moving. Thank you Nathan for bringing these songs to life with your profound and beautiful testimony!! This CD is exquisite!!!!
Each song has immense strength. I get goosebumps everytime I hear "in Christ alone" and "Forever". This album is phenomenal
As I have listened to this great CD and heard the words to the songs, it really reminds me that the atonement is for everyone and that we can come closer and HIGHER to Christ. I have loved listening to Forever the first track on this CD and it always brings me to tears because of the message that it contains.
Holy cow! I can't even tell you just how much I loved this whole CD. I love Nathan Pacheco's sound. I love the piano and cello in the background. I love the songs he chose. Really every thing about it.
Song #1 Forever really touched me. I've listened to it several times, and every time I do I love it even more. I've included the YouTube video so you can watch it. It really is amazing and gives me goose bumps every time I listen to it. I love his singing in this one and I really love the choir at the end too.
I really loved his foreign language songs as well. It was kind of fun that I could understand a few words here and there from my DuoLingo training. And my all time favorite "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" is on here as well and really well done.
Make sure to check this great CD out
I have had the privilege to seen Nathan perform in person several times. What a talented performer and artist he is!. I was so impressed after seeing him perform live with Yanni, I purchased the Voices CD, and after that his self titled CD and now Higher. What a soaring tenor voice, clear and strong, filled with emotion that touches the listener. Nathan has a gift that I am glad he has chosen to share. I can't give a higher "thumbs up" than saying, you will not be disappointed with any of Nathan Pacheco's music. I hope there is more to come.
What a voice! This album sounds great. His voice is so rich. Songs are great, arrangements are good, the messsge is great and the CD invites the Spirit. The world needs more of this. Great job Nathan! Love the CD!
I love that there is more than just LDS music on here! In Christ Alone has been one of my favorite songs since my mission, and I just love it with the cello and the piano. The whole album feels very sincere and really brings the Spirit. Top notch stuff!
Oh, my goodness! What a voice! I absolutely loved this album. Not only does Pacheco have a gorgeous voice but the music was beautiful and the arrangements amazing. I was previously familiar with some of these songs, such as His Love, which I remember from my Especially for Youth experience many years ago, also How Great Thou Art and Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing are old favorites of mine. But the arrangements are new and clearly perfect for Pacheco's voice. I literally got chills listening to this. I can safely say that this is now a favorite album and will be listened to many times in the future. I highly recommend that if you enjoy spiritually touching music that you check this one out.
Beautiful music. This is one of the times I have listened on my computer to something newly released. I can honestly say it was one of the most beautiful songs about our Savior I have ever heard. I have to say that it caused me to cry - just listening - and the second time I listened, it brought more tears. Thank you for providing something so absolutely special and complimentary to God's Son and our loving Savior, Jesus Christ. We are truly blessed!!!
