Next Tuesday, November 25, Lindsay Stirling (world-renowned hip hop violinist) will be participating in a live Facebook chat with youth from around the world who are members of (or interested in) The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is the second such virtual, live event for youth. The first was with David Archuleta.
I’m looking forward to enjoying this event with my teenagers. Some youth groups will be gathering together with each other to participate in this event.
Here is more information from lds.org:
Youth around the world will have a chance to ask Lindsey questions, moderated by Young Men general president David L. Beck and Young Women general president Bonnie L. Oscarson. Lindsey will share her own story—including how she learned to recognize her worth, how she shares the gospel, and how she has risen above criticism to make a unique contribution to the world. Lindsey will perform live songs at the event—one of which will be a duet featuring special guest Lexi Walker.
WHEN: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2014, AT 6:30 P.M. MST.

Lindsey Stirling is a dancing, hip hop violinist and a self-made success story. Her video “Crystallize” has over 100 million views on YouTube. Lindsey is a returned missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In her I’m a Mormon profile she talks about how her faith has helped her overcome trials in her life, including an eating disorder. She’s known for her unique personality and musical style, incorporating dubstep into her music and covering songs like “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons and even her own versions of the “Zelda,” “Skyrim” and “Pokemon” theme songs. Lindsey said, “I was told by so many people that I wouldn’t succeed because I was too different. Ironically, the very reason that people watch my channel and travel thousands of miles to see a show … is because it’s different. God didn’t send us to earth to just blend in. We are here to share what makes us unique.” Whatever Lindsey does, she does it in her own way, and she enjoys having a close and direct relationship with her fans. She’s currently on tour in Europe promoting her new album Shatter Me. Fresh off her tour, she will join LDS youth from across the globe on November 25 in this live online Face to Face event
This looks like an awesome event for the youth. I am just so amazed at the strength of the youth of today. They are diffidently last day warriors. These two performers are some of the best.
Blessings for all!
