Lindsey Stirling, the world-renowned dancing violinist, will be featured in the second “Face to Face” online event for youths hosted by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. MDT. The first event, which was broadcast in June to more than 34,000 video streams around the world, featured David Archuleta, who had recently returned from a full-time mission.
Stirling, who served a mission in New York, will share her life experiences and answer questions submitted by youths around the world. The purpose of the event, as stated on the LDS Church’s website, is to “increase your confidence in your self-worth and in your ability to contribute good things to the world.” Stirling previously battled an eating disorder but later learned to embrace her individuality.
“I was told by so many people that I wouldn't succeed because I was too different,” Stirling is quoted as saying on lds.org. “Ironically, the very reason that people watch my channel and travel thousands of miles to see a show is because it’s different. God didn’t send us to earth to just blend in. We are here to share what makes us unique.”
The “Face to Face” series features a mix of questions and answers as well as musical performances by the artist. The event will be moderated by Young Women General President Bonnie L. Oscarson and Young Men General President David L. Beck.
The youths of the church are invited to submit their own questions for Stirling on lds.org. They are also encouraged to invite their friends of other faiths to watch the event.
