Christmas celebrations on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, usually include hundreds of musical performances throughout the month of December. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, Temple Square Performances will hold its Christmas concerts virtually this year, and all are invited to participate.
The annual Savior of the World, a musical drama celebrating the birth and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, will not be held this year.

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and friends of other faiths from across the world will have the opportunity to submit Christmas video performances.

The submissions will be edited into concerts and broadcast on ChurchofJesusChrist.org throughout the Christmas season. This year they also will become part of the annual Light the World Christmas campaign.

The Light the World Christmas initiative focuses on celebrating and sharing the light of Jesus Christ in several ways, including music performances. Millions of people across the world participate in the annual initiative during the Christmas season.

The musical performances may include fun and lighthearted holiday songs and inspiring and worshipful Christmas songs from various cultures and traditions. Original songs from throughout the world are also encouraged.

Any size group is welcome, from small ensembles to full choirs and instrumental groups; participants are reminded to observe local social distancing requirements. Solo performances will be accepted, but priority will be given to groups and ensembles.

Video submissions should be emailed to ChristmasatTempleSquare@ChurchofJesusChrist.org by November 15, 2020. Each group may submit up to two videos.

Those submitting performances are encouraged to share their submissions on their personal social media platforms using #LighttheWorld.

Visit Frequently Asked Questions for details regarding the submission process. A schedule, including performances, broadcast times and locations, will be available as the Christmas season approaches.

Let the Light In – Mat and Savanna Shaw with Peter Hollens (Peter Hollens Original Song) | #LightTheWorld

From the Shaws: Merry Christmas everyone! Our good friend Peter Hollens just wrote this beautiful original Christmas song with his co-writer Anna Gilbert. We are so excited to be singing it with him in this video. The song is called “Let the Light In” and it perfectly captures what is most important about Christmas: Love. To quote from the lyrics, “all we need this Christmas is Love, more Love.” “We sing of hope, the joy of the season, but it’s hard to feel that way with the pain of yesterday.” However, “if you let the light in hearts will open.”
