Dubbed "America's Choir" by President Ronald Reagan, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir celebrated 75 years of continual broadcasting in July 2004. Author Heidi S. Swinton writes, "How do you tell the story of a choir that began singing to sagebrush and is now courted by concert halls in the most sophisticated cities across the globe? Such fame has never been their purpose or their statisfaction. Theirs is a history of volunteers who, year after year, from one century to another and then into another, kept working, kept serving, kept singing. They have sung with a spirit that points to Almighty God. And there lies their secret to success."
