Watch Epic Interfaith 'Hallelujah' Performance For Pope Francis

Can the U.S. top this for the pope's visit in September?

Pope Francis is due to visit the U.S. for the first time in September, and people are already making gifts and planning festive welcome events for the occasion. 

Host organizations in Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia, where the pope is due to travel, may want to take a look at what other cities before them have done to pamper the pontiff during his stay. One example from Pope Francis's visit to Israel in 2014 takes the cake.

A youth choir comprised of Jewish, Christian and Muslim children aged 10-14 from various Jerusalem schools performed for the pope during his reception with former Israeli President Shimon Peres. The children sang a medley of "Hallelujah" songs and completely nailed it.

Pope Francis couldn't stop smiling.

Can the U.S. present something equally adorable, melodic and multi-faith?
