Musical Victory for Mormons in the final Hunger Games?

TREN, a former group of BYU students, have written an amazing and very District-12-like song with the hopes that it will play during the closing credits for the last Hunger Games movie.

“The idea is that there comes a time when we must either fight for a chance at really ‘living life’ or give in to circumstance and simply ‘survive,'” they wrote alongside their video on YouTube. “That’s what this song is about and what we are all about in our fight to get this song in the movie.”

You can help them reach their goal of getting in the movie by watching this video and sharing it!!!!

Spotlight and Irreplaceable by Madilyn Paige

Ever since Madilyn made it to the playoffs in the Voice, Season 6, we have been a fan of her dulcet voice and meaning-filled lyrics. Watch her newest video “Spotlight” here:

We also love the music and message in Madilyn’s video “Irreplaceable.” Sometimes we just need to be reminded that we are irreplaceable! :)

Oceans of Good

We love uplifting music, but we also especially love when that music goes to a good cause.

And the Gardiner Sisters are doing just that–helping a friend. Now, when you download their Hillsong United cover “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail), all of the proceeds go to support their dear friend Linda Jensen who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. (You can also buy a “Life is Sweet” t-shirt here to help her and her family.)

Of Linda, the sisters said, “We admire Linda’s incredible faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ, and perspective as she faces this incredible trial. We know how much Linda relies on God for peace, comfort, and direction in her life, and so we decided to record a studio version of “Oceans” by Hillsong United for her.”

See the video here and share it to help spread light and goodness!

Dark Lord Funk and Other Parodies by Mormons

Have you seen the new Harry Potter parody of “Uptown Funk” called “Dark Lord Funk?” It just recently hit 6 million views and was even commented on by J.K. Rowling, calling it a “work of genius” on Twitter. And it was all created by Brigham Young University students Andrew Carver and Keith Allen.

Watch the video here:

But they aren’t the only Mormons to create great parodies. Check out some other parodies here:
