Some of the singers and songwriters talked about participating in this year’s event and what the songs mean to them.

Halee “Halo” Crowther served a performing mission in Nauvoo, Illinois, and has always felt that music is a gift from God “and we should be listening to music that can show off that gift.”

Singer Garon Brett talked about using his talents to point others to Christ: “I just hope that there are kids that really resonate with the music,” he said.

Patch Crowe, who stars in the music video for the song, “If You Believe,” says music transcends all barriers.

“It just is such a beautiful thing to be a part of,” Crowe said. “We don’t even need to speak the same language, and I can sing a song to you that conveys a message more perfectly than words ever could.”

João Daniel, who is from Brazil, agreed saying, “Music seems to connect us to each other in a very special way.”

When asked what Naxi Martinez, from Mexico, hopes that the youth and young single adults will take away from the concert, she said: “That we are children of God and that His love for us is immense.”

This year’s theme song “Disciple of Christ,” was sung by Ysabella Cuevas. She went back to her home country for the filming.

“We traveled all around the Philippines to capture the beauty of my home in a matter of three days. I did not think it was possible, but I knew we weren’t doing it alone,” she said.

All youth music is available on the Church’s Children and Youth website, the Gospel Library, the Sacred Music app, Strive to Be YouTube channel, Spotify and Apple Music.
