My parents are famous!

This weekend is General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
It is a wonderful time every six months when we get to hear from our prophet, and president of the church, President Thomas S. Monson, as well as his two counselors and the entire Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. It is truly wonderful.

One of the best parts of conference is the music, which is done in at least two of the five sessions by The Mormon Tabernacle Choir. In the other sessions, the choirs are made up of people from congregations throughout Northern Utah.

This time, my parents had the chance to sing in the choir, so I thought I would tell them how great they sounded by posting some pictures of their performance.

Here is the whole choir in the Conference Center. There is an amazing organ in that building.

Here is Mother. She is in the middle in the purple shirt. She said before the performance that her goal was to not look at the camera, and she did a great job of that. It was fun to see her sing!

One of the first views of Daddy was only to top of his head. You can tell which one is him (he's quite bald) just below the conducter's left shoulder. He was on the front because he was the second-shortest tenor in the choir.

Here is a better picture of Daddy. He is in the middle of the men. He also did a great job. I think he should try out for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir some day, he'd be great. (The picture here is a little grainier because the camera didn't zoom in on him like it did on Mother.)

Here is the link to the video of conference. Check out "I Know that My Redeemer Lives" at the end of the Saturday PM session.

This is probably the first time I haven't studied the choir and congregation to see if there were people I knew. So of course, this is probably the only time there were people I knew! That is cool that your parents got to be in the choir. I'll have to watch the link.

Okay Crystal... There is something wrong with me, I just sat here for about 5 minutes trying to make the lady in the purple shirt YOUR mother... it wasn't going to well. I kept thinking, "I know it's been a long time since I've seen Sister Sorenson, but she doesn't look at all like I remember her!!!"
I need more sleep!!
That's cool about Jordan's parents though!

I thought I saw your parents singing! Tell them Jim & Lori from NC said hi.

You are also interviewing for law school in my home town. My mother lives on Maroa St. Like they say, it's a small world!

Good luck on your interviews!
