They're called "The Singing Contractors." Josh Arnett and Aaron Gray didn't set out to become guys who could croon while installing drywall, but they've made a name for themselves doing just that.

Artnett and Gray, both Indiana residents, met when they were about 13, and grew up together singing in church, People reports. Then, six years ago they started working together as building contractors. To pass the time, they'd sometimes hum or sing songs together, but it wasn't until they recorded a video of them performing "How Great Thou Art" that they went public with it. (Spoiler: they are very good singers!)

"One day I said 'let's put it on Facebook,'" Gray told WGNtv.com. "And [Josh] was like, 'no way', so I did it anyways." Well, once the video went live, it went viral. It now has over 15 million views on Facebook.

You might notice that there's a third guy in there with them, on the left. He's just a random guy who was on the job with them that day, and guess what: yes, he is an incredible singer too. I am not sure what is going on with the contracting world but it seems like all of them have been given the gift of beautiful voices and the ability to harmonize on the spot.

Since The Singing Contractors got their start six years ago, they started to develop their passion a bit more (the passion isn't the contracting part). They'd take requests from fans, and travel to perform at different venues. They've even put out two albums at this point. And now that it's the holiday season, they've started performing requests they're getting for Christmas songs. Here's them doing an unrehearsed (I repeat, unrehearsed) version of "Mary Did You Know":

I mean, what the heck. These guys are amazing. I want to hire them to come to my house, finally hang up some framed prints that have been sitting on my floor for months, and sing me some sweet, sweet carols in their angelic voices. I love their humility, their sense of humor, and their transcendent combination of blue-collar work and artistic beauty. Some people might be wondering if they ever manage to get any work done on the job, when they're so busy perfectly harmonizing in a way that sends chills down your spine, but I don't even care. Singing Contractors for President.
