What to expect during the first-ever Youth Music Festival on Wednesday


On Wednesday, July 29, 2020, youth from around the world are invited to participate in the first-ever Youth Music Festival, a virtual global concert.

The theme of the festival is “Hear the Voice of the Lord,” based on President Russell M. Nelson’s invitation to “Hear Him.”

“This event is to celebrate that prophetic invitation with youth all over the world,” Elder Ulisses Soares said in a video on Facebook. “In preparation for this event, I invite you to consider how you can better hear Him in your everyday life.”

The prerecorded program will be a 40-minute livestream concert with testimonies by youth and Church leaders, music in various languages, and performances from around the world. The concert will air at 6 p.m. (MDT) on the Strive to Be YouTube channel, the Church’s Live Broadcasts page, or the Church’s Facebook page.

A video from the Strive to Be YouTube channel gives a sneak peek at what youth can expect.
