Of all the memorable Christmas concert moments throughout the years, one of the most unforgettable showstoppers came from English tenor Alfie Boe—his incredible rendition of “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables brought down the house during the 2012 Christmas concerts that took place in the Conference Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Of the song, a writer forEntertainment Weekly wrote, “You would have to have a heart full of stones to not fall in love with Alfie Boe’s version of ‘Bring Him Home.’”
“Citius, Altius, Fortius!” That was the soaring sound that was heard during the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Olympic Games. Those three Latin words, meaning “Faster, Higher, Stronger,” echoed throughout millions of homes as people around the world tuned in to watch those games. “Call of the Champions” was a spectacular collaboration that inspired hearts and lifted spirits of a nation still reeling from the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir performed the national anthem at the opening ceremonies, which included a tribute using the flag that was flown at Ground Zero.
