“Luz de las Naciones,” the celebration of Latin American culture, is now available to stream online. The yearly event, presented by more than 500 volunteer performers in Salt Lake City through sponsorship by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Elder Ulisses Soares, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ, marked the occasion in front of a live audience of more than 13,000 people on November 5 in the Conference Center on Temple Square. “We are so grateful for everyone who has shared their talents with us tonight, and for everyone who has done so over the last 20 years.”
Elder Soares spoke to the majority Spanish-speaking audience in their native language. “’Luz de las Naciones’ has celebrated and continues to celebrate the rich Hispanic culture,” he said.
The Conference Center stage was filled with a bright display of dancers, musicians and a 200-person choir who presented a variety of performances from several Latin American countries including Cuba, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Colombia. Beloved songs featured in the celebration were “La Vida Es Un Carnaval,” “Candú,” and “México Lindo y Querido.”
