...with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir even. Beautiful.

I am a trained musician (or was before selling out and getting a business degree in grad school) and there are endless numbers I enjoy from popular and classical music. I like Mahlers ressurection symphony, the hymn How Great Thou Art, The choral anthem The Last Words of David and the song about returning where I belong from Disneys Hercules. In short anything that is inspiring and accompanied by music makes my day!

My second link did not work out too well. Here goes my second attempt! Thanks for sharing your thoughts DaddyG!

The song is called unashamed. There are a couple good versions to chose from through this link although I am unable to get the link to work for my favorite video. The song was written by a group called Starfield.

Lyrics (prayer)

I have not much

To offer You

Not near what You deserve

But still I come

Because Your cross

Has placed in me my worth

Oh, Christ my King

Of sympathy

Whose wounds secure my peace

Your grace extends

To call me friend

Your mercy sets me free

And I know I'm weak

I know I'm unworthy

To call upon Your name

But because of grace

Because of Your mercy

I stand here unashamed

For singing...All Creatures of our God and King has been a prayer in music since I first remembering hearing it as a child. I just wish we sang it more in church.

The verses themselves...A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief. I can't sing this one due to getting choked up.

I always think of that movie "mountain of the Lord" when I hear ACOOGANK! Wilford Woodruff singing it and he meets his wife! haha!

      Dear members of Mormon Dialogue & Discussion Board, 
       
      We’re doing an online survey about the experiences of Christians, and we hope you can participate! If you participate, you’ll complete a survey online and be able to enter to win a $15 gift card, and we are giving out 35 gift cards. Christians are a very under-studied group, and we’d love to hear from members your group. 
       
      You can participate if you are an adult, living in the United States, and identify as a Christian (all denominations are welcome!). 
       
      The web site for the study is: 
      http://tinyurl.com/ChristianStressStudy 
       
      Please note that we want to be clear that the purpose of this research is NOT to portray Christians in any negative light, whatsoever! We are interested in the daily stress experienced by Christians and factors such as whether they feel they can be open about their faith at work. Very little research has examined the experiences of Christians in this regard. 
       
      Please feel free to contact the study principal investigator, Dr. Mike Parent, directly at Michael.parent@ttu.edu if you have any questions or concerns at all about this study. 
       
      This study is being conducted by Dr. Mike Parent (Texas Tech University), Dr. Melanie Brewster (Teacher’s College), and Dr. Stephen Cook (Hardin-Simmons University). This study was approved by the Texas Tech Institutional Review Board, and posting this link was approved by your group moderator Nemesis (Thank you!). 
       
      Thank you!

      [i saw the lower case LDS too late, and couldn't find a way to edit it.  I apologize for the error. Please let me know if there is a way to edit topic titles.  Thanks!]
       
      This topic is not about whether or not Mormons are Christians.  It is not about whether Mormonism is a Christian religion.
       
      It is about whether and how the LDS leadership undermines its own position, and that of the membership - that other Christian groups should recognize it, them, as Christians - when it refuses to recognize other Mormon groups as Mormons.
       
      Following are statements made by the LDS Church:
       
      1) A recent news story referred to fugitive Warren Jeffs as a “fundamentalist Mormon” and “leader of a polygamist breakaway Mormon sect.”
       
      Polygamist groups in Utah, Arizona or Texas have nothing whatsoever to do with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. To refer to them as “Mormon” is inaccurate.
      http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/fundamentalist-mormons
       
      2) Fact:
          There is no such thing as a "fundamentalist" Mormon. Mormon is a common name for a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Church discontinued polygamy more than a century ago. No members of the Church today can enter into polygamy without being excommunicated. Polygamist groups in Utah, other parts of the American West and elsewhere have nothing whatsoever to do with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
      http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/commentary/fundamentalist-mormons
       
      3) Recent news reports regarding various issues related to the practice of polygamy, especially focusing on groups in Southern Utah, Arizona and Texas, have used terms such as "fundamentalist Mormons," "Mormon sect" and "polygamous Mormons" to refer to those who practice polygamy.
          There is no such thing as a "polygamous" Mormon. Mormon is a common name for a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Church discontinued polygamy more than a century ago. No members of the Church today can enter into polygamy without being excommunicated. Polygamist groups in Utah, Arizona or Texas have nothing whatsoever to do with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
      http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/polygamous-mormons
       
      4) "...it is estimated that approximately 30,000 Mormons live in polygamous households in Utah."
      Fact:
          The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints discontinued the practice of polygamy more than a century ago. No members of the Church today can enter into polygamy without being excommunicated. Groups that practice polygamy have nothing to do whatsoever with the Church and should not be referred to as Mormons.
      http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/30-000-mormon-polygamists
       
      5) There is no such thing as a “Mormon Fundamentalist.” It is a contradiction to use the two words together.
      -President Gordon B. Hinckley
      https://www.lds.org/general-conference/1998/10/what-are-people-asking-about-us?lang=eng
       
      All of these official statements made by the LDS Church deny the use of “Mormon” when referring to polygamous or fundamentalist groups.  How is this to be justified when the LDS Church and its members decry Christian groups that refuse to refer to LDS as Christians or the LDS Church as a Christian church?
       
      In all of these quotes the term “Mormon” is being defined as a member of the LDS Church.  But that is at least an outdated definition - denying the reality of the existence and legitimacy of other groups that embrace Joseph Smith’s restoration and scriptures.  It is certainly self-serving, especially if used to differentiate between the “Mormon” issue and the “Christian” issue.
       
      Why do Christians deny that Mormons are Christians?  Why does the LDS Church deny that off-shoot Mormons are Mormons?
       
      See the following (especially in bold):
       
      6) The Associated Press style guide tells its reporters that the term Mormon “is not properly applied” to the other churches that resulted from the split after Joseph Smith's death. It should be obvious why the AP has adopted that policy. It is widely understood that the word “Mormon” refers to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which sends out “Mormon missionaries,” sponsors the “Mormon Tabernacle Choir” and builds “Mormon temples.” Associating the term ‘Mormon’ with polygamists blurs what should be a crystal-clear line of distinction between organizations that are entirely separate.
      http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/commentary/-mormons-and-polygamy
       
      While the terms LDS and Mormon are not brands in the commercial sense, these terms reflect the identity, reputation and teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The LDS Church has the right and expectation that the use of these terms will convey certain impressions to those who become aware of them. This is known in the business world as brand equity and in the words of NetMBA.com it "is an intangible asset that depends on associations made by the consumer."
      http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700224488/Adoption-of-FLDS-name-is-akin-to-identity-theft.html?pg=all
       
      Christians don’t want the public (consumers) to confuse Mormonism for Christianity.  LDS leadership doesn’t want the public to confuse Mormon off-shoots for Mormonism or the LDS Church.
       
      Insofar as the LDS Church denies off-shoot groups the name “Mormon”, the LDS Church undermines its call for non-LDS Christians to accept it as Christian.  In nearly every way that the LDS Church justifies denying “Mormon” to off-shoots, it justifies Christians denying “Christian” to Mormonism.

      Relevant because the LDS Church requires celibacy outside heterosexual marriage to be a member in good standing. So it's good to hear from those who are successfully practicing it.

      I have musically talented children and so this LDS artist is becoming a topic among my circle of friends and family.  The LDS Church will be hosting a video chat featuring her on Tuesday November 25th:
       
      https://www.lds.org/church/events/live-youth-face-to-face-event-with-lindsey-stirling?lang=eng&cid=HPFR1114144782
       
      Her work includes combining dance and video theater with her violin playing.  Here are some examples:
       

       

       

       

       

       
      I must admit to enjoying these performances. Feel free to discuss this or any LDS artist or LDS art in general including any feeling as to how this kind of thing may or may not advance LDS values or causes. Is it talent, or such much fluff? Bah Humbug? Etc.
       
      She does seem to go out of the way to promote herself, but I don't see that as a bad thing especially if you want to make a career out of something you love doing.
       
      Edit to add:
       
      Here is an excerpt of her page on Mormon dot org:

      Some people are mocking the video because they say that Buddhists do not believe in God. 
       
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsLrVpeodog
       
      The religious Buddhists do believe in the God of Einstein, the God of Spinoza, the God of beauty, the God of order. 
      The Buddhists are also religious because they believe in the next life. 
      Some Buddhists do not believe in a secular scientism. 
       
      Buddhism - "A widespread Asian religion or philosophy, founded by Siddartha Gautama in northeastern India in the 5th century bc."
