The Mormon Tabernacle Choir YouTube channel will feature a variety of content:
- Music videos, such as the one unveiled at the news conference featuring soloist Alex Boyé singing the African American spiritual “I Want Jesus to Walk Me” with the Choir.

Currently, there are 30 music videos on the YouTube channel with more to come in the future.
- Playlists and popular past performances such as the Pioneer Concert with Katherine Jenkins.
- Music and the Spoken Word is also on the YouTube channel. Music and the Spoken Word is the longest continuing broadcast in the world, first airing on July 15, 1929 in the Tabernacle on Temple Square. Since then, over 4,300 episodes have aired.
- Plus, musical highlights, inspirational messages, general conference music, concerts, and promotional videos
After the announcement event, members of the Choir participated in a Google+ hangout, answering questions about their experiences singing with such a renowned organization.

I always feel angels are singing from heaven when I hear the choir. It is the greatest blessing to have ears to hear the very thrilling music. I hope to sing in a choir like that in the next life!!!!
But for this life, let us rejoice to hear and listen and praise God in our hearts.
Love and adoration,
