Sunday night's two-hour live show was a hit for many around the country and in the Twittersphere.
The show stars Jencarlos Canela as Jesus, country star Trisha Yearwood as Mary, Chris Daughtry as Judas and Prince Royce as Peter.
The Passion's story was shot throughout New Orleans and host Tyler Perry led hundreds in songs and prayers in the city's downtown. Although only a few hundred people were able to witness the show in New Orleans, millions online felt the power.
Watching people worship on live TV in New Orleans right now is really cool. #ThePassionLive— Carissa Kelley (@CarissaKelley) March 21, 2016
