Performing at President Nelson’s Birthday Celebration "an Opportunity of a Lifetime" for Artists (+Video)

In honor of President Nelson's 95th birthday, Latter-day Saint artists The Bonner Family, Nathan Pacheco, Jenny Oaks Baker & Family Four, GENTRI, and Donny Osmond along with The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square will all be performing at the Conference Center on Friday. 

This special performance is a dream come true for the artists as they prepare to share their music and their testimonies with members around the world. 

"We know that he is the prophet for the world, and we know that he is the Lord's prophet, and he speaks revelation that is needed for everyone," Colon Bonner said in a video from the Church's newsroom. "That fact that he'll be right in front of us as we sing is a complete honor." 

This performance will be special, Junior Bonner said, because the Bonner children are spread out all over the country and the first time they will perform the song together will be on Friday night. They have been practicing and talking through their parts.

“Each word (in the song) mattered. We hope that people hear these words and understand the intent of them because they mean a lot to us,” said Conlon Bonner, the sixth Bonner child.
