Youth around the world joined the Strive to Be “Trust in the Lord” live concert broadcast from the Conference Center Theater on Saturday night, June 4.

Young Men General President Steven J. Lund and his wife, Sister Kalleen Lund, and Sister Rebecca Craven, Second Counselor in the Young Women General Presidency, attended the concert with nearly 500 youth who attended in person.

Before the concert, Sister Craven said it is important for youth to learn while they are young how the Holy Ghost speaks to them.

“The Lord talks to all of us differently,” she said. “However it is, we just have to trust in Him.”

At the beginning of the concert, Ben Olsen, 18, who hosted the event with Sadie Hull, 15, said the music of the night was meant to help youth remember to put their trust in the Lord.

Nik Day, who has written many of the Youth Theme songs the past few years, said the purpose of the 2022 Youth Theme album and the concert was to promote gospel messages in a way that reaches youth.

“In these songs, we try to do whatever we can to help youth internalize gospel principles of home and faith and love,” Day said.

Hada Veronica, a singer originally from Tamaulipas, Mexico, sang “Look to You” in her native Spanish during the concert.

“I want to sing for my Savior,” she said. “There’s no better way for me to worship than using the talents that God gave me.”
