“It’s Like a Big Hug from a Bunch of New Friends” —Santino Fontana
Guests of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir have described their positive experiences with the Choir by describing feelings they haven’t felt before. Beloved actress Angela Lansbury, who performed at the Christmas concerts in 2001, said: “I didn’t realize that I was going to be hit by this extraordinary spirit. I haven’t experienced this before. It’s quite unique, people doing something for the love of it." 2010 guest David Archuleta said, “Getting to be up on that stage with the Choir was one of the best feelings I’ve ever felt in my life.”
Last year’s guests were no different as they expressed their feelings about performing with the Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square. Hear what the puppeteers said in previous blog post titled The Puppeteers from Sesame Workshop® Feel the Love from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Santino Fontana expressed his own similar sentiments: “I think any performer that’s given the opportunity to come and sing with the Choir should take it. I think it’s a fantastic experience that is so unique and exciting. It will enrich your life both as a performer and as a human being.”
The concert was filmed over four days last December and was made into a DVD and CD titled Keep Christmas With You. Pick them up on our product page.
