A group of Latter-day Saint youth participating in a pioneer trek reenactment this summer performed a special song relating to their local history.
The Nashville Tribute Band, a popular band of Latter-day Saints looking to praise God through down-to-earth music, wrote a song known as “American Dreams” for their 2005 album focused on the life of the prophet Joseph Smith. The song tells the story of a man traveling from Ireland to Kirtland, Ohio, to meet the prophet, Joseph Smith. As the site of the first temple of the Restoration and the place of many essential revelations from Jesus Christ, Kirtland stands as an important location in Church history.
During a special youth conference where teens of the faith reenact a pioneer trek, the song was performed to honor their history. You can watch the fun video below.
