Watch: Mormon Channel Features Hauntingly Beautiful, Indie-Style Hymn in New Music Series


During the first episode of the Mormon Channel’s new music series, Austi Stenson and Emily Erekson, who make up Aspartame Sunshine, performed a stunning version of "Our Savior's Love" and an original song, "South Dakota."

About their decision to sing this hymn, which features unique and beautiful harmonies, Stenson says she heard this song performed in her ward two weeks in a row. Though an unusual occurrence to sing the same song back to back at church, Stenson says she felt drawn to the song and felt that "there is something in this song we really needed." She says, "It was one of those moments when you kind of feel extra touched, so I wrote it down and I said, 'Go home and study this, because there is something there that you need.'"
