LDS singer/songwriter Bri Ray recruited some of the most talented artists in Utah to collaborate on this music video “Come and See.” It’s an invitation to come and see Jesus Christ who loves, heals, and saves. This video is the creative result of Bri Ray, Junior and Mona Maile, Nephi Casuga, Yahosh Bonner, Jywrrn, Jenn Blossil, Madilyn Paige, and Sailiata Junior Fano.
Bri decided to get involved in the #LIGHTtheWORLD celebration this year because she was personally inspired by it last year. Here’s the backstory she shared with me:
Once I had an idea of the direction I wanted the project to go, I approached Nephi Casuga to ask if he wanted to be a part of it. He agreed and we started reaching out to other artists. Once we had Junior Maile on board, everything seemed to fall in line (S/O to him and his wife Mona). They connected us with Sailiata Junior Fano—one of the most gifted songwriters. We were sitting in Sailiata Junior Fano’s living room as he played through several songs he had written. As soon as we heard “Come and See” it seemed to be a unanimous vote. The Spirit was so strong. Not a dry eye in the room.
Once the song was decided, we set to work recruiting the rest of the artists and people to hold signs in the video!! You may see some familiar faces. I am so overwhelmed with gratitude for everyone who helped this come to life.
I couldn’t be more grateful to be in a position to share such a beautiful message about our Savior. That He was born, died for our sins, and continues to live and love us. I am so grateful for the joy the gospel brings to our lives. I know that through Him anything is possible. Through Him our deepest pains, regrets, and sorrows can be relieved. Through Him our greatest joys, victories, and successes are heightened. He will not leave us lonely, but loves us endlessly. And for that I am forever grateful.
I can’t wait to extend this invitation to the world to Come and See Him who loves, heals, and saves.
Merry Christmas. May we remember the Reason for the Season, and share His light with the world.
