Keith Getty performs carol concert for US Vice President Mike Pence

by Tola Mbakwe

The "In Christ Alone" creators and their touring band performed their modern hymns and led guests in traditional carol singing at the Vice President's residence.

The musical married couple from Northern Ireland also brought their Christmas tour to the the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Opera House for a sold-out performance of "Sing! An Irish Christmas".

They led thousands of guests in traditional carol singing along with classical violinist David Kim and jazz bassist John Patitucci.

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife were also amongst the crowd.

The Sing! Tour is part of a global initiative aimed at reviving congregational singing. The Getty's next stop is Carnegie Hall in New York City.
