On the night of March 20, 6.6 million viewers tuned into Fox to see the live production of “The Passion Live,” which told the story of Jesus Christ’s final days.
And chances are that most of those millions have Trisha Yearwood’s voice running through their heads long after the show.
Indeed, the country music superstar left viewers in awe of not only her beauty playing the role of Mary in the production, but also the emotion she put into the lyrics of songs such as “My Love is Your Love,” “Hands” and “I Won’t Give Up.”
Yet, perhaps one of the most emotional pieces of the production was when Trisha sang Lifehouse’s “Broken” next to the illuminated cross that had journeyed through New Orleans just an hour before.
It was mesmerizing.
Unfortunately, the two-hour show, which also included the talents of Chris Daughtry, Michael W. Smith and Seal, did not bring in the numbers as previous live shows have received in the past. Scheduled against NCAA basketball and “The Walking Dead,” “The Passion Live” scored a 4.3 rating, which was a double digit decline from “Grease Live” on January 31, according to Deadline.
