ABOUT "WE ARE CHOSEN"
I originally wrote this song for my Seminary program when I was 16 years old. The Youth Seminary Council approached me and asked if I would like to write a song to go with their theme for the year. I can still vividly remember playing and singing this throughout the year and loving the message! Fast forward 15 years later when I was called to be the Music Director for the Ogden Temple Cultural Celebration. As I was contemplating music for it, this song came to the forefront of my mind. The message was still as relevant today as it was for me when I was their age! I finally notated the music and created a choral arrangement. It was originally written as a solo (music for that is coming)! I was so moved by the sweet messages of thanks I received afterwards from youth that were touched in particular by the words of this song. Every time I hear it, I go right back to being 16 years old when I was still trying to figure out my place in the world. I hope you enjoy this song that reminds us all of who we truly are.
