Friday, Kathleen and I were able to attend the 85th Birthday Celebration for President Thomas Monson. It was held at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City. Three guest singers accompanied the Tabernacle Choir: Rebecca Luker, Stanford Olsen, and Dallyn Vail Bayles. Wow. Steve Young and Jane Clayson Johnson were the moderators.
It stands out to me that when the Church holds an event with the Choir, such as this or the Pioneer Day Celebration with Katherine Jenkins that it will be an incredible experience.
I can't find the full video of th concert, but did find the Happy Birthday to President Monson. It's short, but good. Take a look, you might get a sense of what the evening was like.
Below is one of the songs Katherine Jenkins sang at the Pioneer Day Concert. I'm telling you, you have to come and serve at this mission or at least attend an event here.
Katherine Jenkins and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing "Habanera" from Carmen.
And finally, Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas Danced the Paso Doble , perhaps our favorite part of the evening.
I'll post the full 85th Birthday event when I find it.
