Last night, the FOX network aired its semi-live broadcast of THE PASSION, which told the story of the last hours of Jesus Christ. Below, check out Trisha Yearwood's performance of "You'll Never Walk Alone" from the iconic musical CAROUSEL. The country singer portrayed Mary in the live broadcast.

THE PASSION, written by Peter Barsocchini ("High School Musical"), tells the 2000-year-old story of the last hours of Jesus Christ's life on earth through passages from THE BIBLE and a variety of contemporary popular music, sung by the cast, and ARRANGED specifically for this event by executive producer and hit music producer Adam Anders ("Glee," "Rock of Ages"). Set in modern day, the event followed the dramatic and inspirational story of Jesus of Nazareth, as he presides over the Last Supper, and then is betrayed by Judas, put on trial by Pontius Pilate, convicted, crucified and resurrected.

The event unfolded live at some of New Orleans' most iconic locations, while featuring a procession of a thousand people carrying a 20-foot, illuminated cross from outside the Mercedes Benz Superdome to the live stage at Woldenberg Park on the banks of the Mississippi River.

THE PASSION stars Jencarlos Canela (Jesus Christ), Chris Daughtry (Judas), Prince Royce (the disciple Peter), Seal (Pontius Pilate) and Trisha Yearwood (Mary, the mother of Jesus). Tyler Perry served as host and narrator, and Grammy Award-winning singer Yolanda Adams performed a special opening number.
