Youth worldwide are invited to participate in the Youth Music Festival, a virtual global concert, on March 17, 2021 (March 18, Auckland 1pm, Sydney 11am).
This year's Youth Music Festival features two singers and a presenter from New Zealand. Nicole Winters and Myshann Komene perform 'He Is Risen' and Tyla Tuala hosts the opening and closing of the event.
The theme of the Youth Music Festival is based on the 2021 Youth theme, “Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great. Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind” (Doctrine and Covenants 64:33-34; emphasis added).
The pre-recorded, livestream virtual concert will feature personal, powerful testimonies by youth and Church leaders, inspiring music in various languages, as well as photos, videos and performances of youth from around the world.
The 2021 youth theme video, which was delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions, also will be released during the event. The Church released youth theme music album in January, and the songs will be featured during the festival.
Youth are encouraged to invite their Latter-day Saint friends and friends of other faiths to watch.
