Come Thou Fount - Hunter's Homecoming



Kenzie's best friend Hunter Jansson returned from him mission last week and he asked if she would sing his favorite hymn for his Homecoming.


Kenz immediately called Kim Granger to accompany her.  She knew Kim would understand when she told her she wanted to re arrange the hymn, something I often call "Kenzifying a song".  Kim was patient as Kenzie worked out new chords and timing.  After a few rehearsals, Kenz felt good about it.

Hunter's cute cousin, Ashley Cloward, then asked if she could join Kenz.  Kenz is pretty picky when it comes to music (especially CHURCH music) but her love for Hunter and his family made the decision easy... Of course, she could sing with Kenz.

She then asked if Kim's daughter, Maddie, would be willing to play her violin.  Kim wrote music for Maddie and they got together 30 minutes before the Homecoming to try all the pieces together.

I don't record the actual performance if it is during our sacrament meeting because it is a sacred meeting but I did record their rehearsal.  It was beautiful.

Hunter's talk about his mission experiences was wonderful.  The musical number was perfect.  Kenzie and Hunter's other friend, Evan Zollinger, ended the meeting sharing his mission experiences as well.  It was a sweet day.
