For the fifth day of this creative advent calendar, the Church shared Alex Boye's African tribal version of the Little Drummer Boy. At the end of the video, Boye' shared this touching testimony:

"You know, I heard a quote once that said, 'This Christmas, instead of asking what you will get, ask what you will give.' And you know, there is no better example than that than the person who gave his whole life, Jesus Christ."

Among the other YouTubers who will participate in this event are David Archuleta, Lindsey Stirling, Jenny Oaks Baker, Peter Hollens, the cast of Studio C, and many more, so keep following LDS Living for each new update. And, in case you missed them, here's day oneday two, day three, and day four of the "12 Days of Social."
