Mother realizes childhood dream of singing in Mormon Tabernacle Choir

A recent article chronicles the journey of Leisa Higbee in her quest to attain her childhood dream of singing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. An excerpt is below:

At the age of 8, Higbee recalled watching general conference with her family on their black and white television.

“I don’t remember what was said during the conference or who spoke, but what I do remember is the beautiful music that touched my very soul in a way that the spoken word (at that time) didn’t,” Higbee said. It moved me so deeply, that I remember saying to my parents that when I got older, I was going to sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I actually visualized myself singing with the choir. At this tender age, I couldn’t think of a more noble, or wonderful goal — singing to make other people feel what I had felt that day.”

As time went on her love for music remained constant, but her dream to be a part of the choir seemed to become less of a reality.
