Southern Lights


Tonight McKenna gets to perform in "Southern Lights," the event celebrating the rededication of the Atlanta Temple. She has worked for months learning and perfecting a salsa dance that she will perform for 4,000 people at the Atlanta Civic Center-- including President Monson. She is amazing at it. She has a special sparkle that will make her performance beautiful. I cannot wait to go and see her on stage!!

Thanks. Thats the best I've ever done that dance. On stage with more pressure, I did it with spirit! :)

That's really exciting!

I love that they do those celebrations. It's neat to see the youth work really hard to get it right, and you know they will never forget those feelings. And to know those feelings are tied to the temple--it just makes me happy! :)

We were so lucky to be able to see this performance. Everything was exceptional, I loved the music, the spirit felt and everything about it. McKenna is such a cutie with all the right moves and agility. What a special time for the youth, they will never forget.
