The Museum of the Bible and the Grammy-winning Australian duo for KING & COUNTRY, led by brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone, have teamed up to share a classic Christmas story that provides viewers with a thrilling cinematic experience.
A silent night at the Bible Museum combines both music and video from the band’s Christmas album, A boy drummer Christmas, and features new scenes from the miniseries The Chosen, as well as music by Franni Rae Cash from We The Kingdom.
“We hope this virtual event will become a holiday tradition”, said Harry Hargrave, CEO of the Museum of the Bible.
In a video shared on Instagram, the brothers shed light on what the little drummer, who is played by Luke’s son, encounters throughout his adventure.
“He’s taking a trip through Washington, DC, through the Museum of the Bible, discovering all kinds of unique events,” Luke said. “There are going to be songs. There are going to be all kinds of special surprises along the way.”
“In moments the museum, which is very silent, comes to life and all these beautiful artifacts that represent the story of the Bible’s journey from thousands of years ago to today … it lives on. ‘a whole new way,’ explained Joël.
The song “The Little Drummer Boy” tells the story of the birth of the newborn king, Jesus Christ and the gifts that are brought to honor the baby. The boy confesses that he is poor and has nothing to give, so he offers to play the drum.
“For us, A Silent Night is about celebrating the joy and wonder of Christmas history in a way that can be shared in homes across the country,” said Joel and Luke. “We are delighted to celebrate the birth of Jesus in this festive and creative way, and we hope you will join us and the tens of thousands of families watching online as we begin this holy season.”
Scenes from A Silent Night were filmed at national landmarks around the nation’s capital and inside the Bible Museum.
Viewers can watch the virtual event on demand until December 17.
