New "Behind the Scenes" Video on Teach Me to Walk in the Light Ad

Teach Me to Walk in the Light, the latest Mormon Tabernacle Choir recording, is quickly becoming a favorite. This unprecedented collection of familiar Primary hymns-with all new arrangements-includes "If the Savior Stood Beside Me," "Give, Said the Little Stream," "Love One Another," and "I Know that My Savior Loves Me."

Deseret Book, the Choir's partner in distributing its recordings since 2003, produced an engaging commercial for the new album. It featured a local children's choir "preparing" for a big concert in the Tabernacle. Footage for the commercial was shot in the dressing rooms and backstage areas the Mormon Tabernacle Choir uses each week for their broadcasts. Click here to see the full length commercial on YouTube.

While the Deseret Book crew was filming the commercial, Ed Payne, executive producer for the Choir's Music and the Spoken Word program, was filming the children who were participating. The result was magic! "I talked to the children about what the songs say to them. You couldn't craft answers more engaging, more fresh, more endearing." This "behind the scenes" video ends with an adorable young girl saying matter-of-factly, "I love to sing! I just love it!"

A grand prize of concert tickets to a Choir performance will be given at the end of the contest. Nominations will be accepted until April 10th, so don't delay.
