Well, ‘Tis the Season’ is just on our doors and love is all around (guess this famous 90s song 😊) and everyone is flying high in the spirit of Christmas – be it a VIP or non-VIP.

And so, such an example has been recently witnessed by many in a recent video shared by the Church of Jesus Christ & Latter-Day Saints.

The video shows the head of the Mormon Church singing “Silent Night” with the cute 7-year old YouTube star Claire Crosby tuning alongside him.

“Sister Nelson and I were thrilled to meet the Dave and Ashley Crosby family during this Christmas season and share an evening together. Imagine my good fortune at having the chance to accompany their daughter Claire as she sang one of our favorites, “Silent Night,” expresses Mr. Russell Nelson in his Instagram post, who is the President of the Church of Jesus Christ & Latter-Day Saints.

For those who are reading for the first time, Claire Crosby is an American child star who is an atomic bomb of talent – she’s a singer, social media star, reality show celebrity, and a well-followed YouTube celebrity as well at a meager age of just 7.

In the video, Mr. Nelson was seen helping Claire Crosby sing efficiently through two difficult verses from the classical Christmas praise song. While he was doing so, the family of Claire and Sister Wendy Nelson – wife of President Nelson – looks on and admire the scene.

Once during the singing of “Silent Night,” the head of Mormon Church and the little Claire are seen exchanging a few words together. The conversation was a sweet and innocent one.

Claire is seen and heard asking Mr. Nelson about his favorite color, to which the Head of the Church of Jesus Christ & Latter-Day Saints answered a great and wisdom-filled reply. Here is how the conversation went:

Claire: “What is your favorite color?”

Russell Nelson: “You know, I love them all.”

Of course, a great wisdom and learning curve in this statement by the Head of the Mormon Church for the young and cute star.

According to an official presser by the Mormon Church about the video, Claire Crosby and her family are a devout member of the Church of the Jesus Christ & Latter-Day Saints.

To go back to the story, at the end of the Christmas Carol rhymes, President Nelson succinctly emphasis on the powerful impact of musical worship, especially in the blissful season of Christmas.

“Music is such a powerful form of worship, and that reality is never clearer than during the Christmas season when we enjoy beautiful carols that testify of the risen Lord,” expresses Mr. Nelson.

He further wished the global community a peaceful and blissful Merry Christmas!

“This December I hope you will make time with family and friends to enjoy the glorious music of this season. Merry Christmas!”
