5. When a Talk Was Given in Cantonese
Elder Chi Hong (Sam) Wong of the Seventy made history when he delivered his conference talk in Cantonese during the October 2014 conference. It was the first time a conference talk was spoken in a language other than English. Those watching the broadcast of the session had a translator; those in the Conference Center had subtitles.
6. When a Soloist Opened a Hymn During the Priesthood Session
Soloists rarely perform during general conference. Traditionally, the music is provided by a choir. During the October 2014 priesthood session, elders from the Prove Missionary Training Center performed "Ye Elders of Israel," opening with a chorus solo sung by an Elder Hunter.
