Utah-Tube: Group of LDS musicians from Utah collaborate on #LightTheWorld video


A group of Utah musicians collaborated for a video that invites the world to “come and see” the Savior this holiday season.

The group of six singers and two musicians sang an original song written by American Fork’s Sailiata Fano. Musicians included Spanish Fork’s Yahosh Bonner, Orem’s Jenn Blosil, Orem’s Bri Ray, Provo’s Madilyn Paige, Orem’s Junior Maile and Salt Lake’s Jywrrn. Fano played the keyboard and Matt Nickel arranged the string instrumentation.

The group decided to collaborate as part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints #LightTheWorld initiative, which invites people to serve during the 25 days leading up to Christmas.

“So honored to be part of the #lighttheworld project this year,” Maile wrote on Facebook. “It reached 30 million people last year and we hope to reach even more in 2017! Come and See!”

The video also showed guest appearances by other LDS individuals and families, including:
