Jenny Oaks Baker, renowned LDS violinist, has created a new music video supporting religious freedom. The video features Baker playing “Yesterday” while on a boat near the Statue of Liberty, as well as religious leaders in their places of worship.
In the video’s description, Baker writes:
I have become very concerned recently as I have seen so many attacks on religious liberty in this nation. I wanted to pay tribute to religion and show in a video how worshiping God blesses the lives of people throughout America. The song-choice ‘Yesterday’ was intended to help people hearken back to their own roots and the roots of this great Country that was founded by great leaders such as George Washington who knew how vital religious freedom is to preserving freedom and maintaining a healthy society. Religious Freedom is very close to my heart. I am so grateful to live in the United States of America where our freedom to worship God “according to the dictates of our own conscience” is valued and protected. I pray that this will continue through the generations, for faith in a higher power and the ability to act upon this faith, immeasurably blesses individuals, family and society.
