Jesus has the voice of an angel!

The cast of The Passion lifted audiences’ spirits with their first song, Celine Dion’s “Love Can Move Mountains.”

Jesus, played by Jencarlos Canela, and his apostles, sang the 1992 hit on a trolley that rolled through the city of New Orleans.

The Passion, which is hosted and narrated by Tyler Perry, follows the inspirational story of Jesus Christ’s final hours.

The show is set in modern day NOLA and features covers of popular contemporary songs to tell the story of the Passion.
