Recently Phil Wickham had the experience of being an extra on the set of The Chosen series. He put together a video of his time, which included leading worship with the cast and crew.
“There were thousands of people there on set in costume ready to film the ‘Sermon On The Mount’ scene. The director [Dallas Jenkins] could have used CGI to pull it off, but he had a vision of inviting people from all over the country that had actually invested in the creation of the show through their crowdfunding campaign,” Wickham recalled. “Every person had to get a COVID test before coming to the set and at the entrance to the set. Needless to say, it was a huge undertaking, but they pulled it off. It was literally FREEZING, but the energy was electric. My favorite moment of the day was leading ‘The Blessing’ with my friends [Kari Jobe & Cody Carnes] right before we shot the scene.”
The Chosen Season 1 is available now online, and Season 2 begins on Easter week.
