Helen Keller's Visit to the Salt Lake Tabernacle

In 1941 Helen Keller came to Salt Lake City to receive a copy of the Book of Mormon in Braille. While visiting Temple Square, Keller addressed a group inside the Tabernacle. Before the meeting was dismissed, Keller requested a performance of "Come, Come, Ye Saints" by the Tabernacle organist.

In the video above, Richard Elliott, principal Tabernacle organist, tells the story of this special moment in the history of the Tabernacle organ.
