    T be fair, the headline does say "11 of the most famous..." not the only 11 to visit.

    Interesting choices there, D News.

    Strange, but interesting.

    One can't help but wonder why some were chosen and others left out. Suffice it to say, these wouldn't be my top ten.

    We sat behind Jim Nabors one Sunday in the Tabernacle.
    No, he didn't sing.
    But, shazam!

    I know for a fact that President John F Kennedy spoke in the tabernacle on temple square. Not quite sure how his visit didn’t qualify as a visit. I don’t think you could argue that he wasn’t famous.

    JFK visited and spoke to a crowd that filled the Tabernacle in October of '63 ... The choir performed "Battle Hymn of The Republic" immediately prior to his speech which had a visible effect on him .,. and on each of us in the audience.

    I thought of this a month later and many times since .... one of the more powerful experiences of my life.
