The Rising Generation
A singing five-year-old who has already seen YouTube fame may not have been the norm in the past, but these days performers are finding their voice earlier, and on a larger and now digital stage. This General Conference weekend in KSL TV’s documentary The Rising Generation, you’ll meet a variety of young people who’ve already hit it big from success on social media sites like YouTube who have gone on to be nationally televised. This raises the question, is paying your dues in music or for fame even necessary anymore?
Claire Crosby sings with her dad, Dave. Lexi Walker has recorded and performing all around the world. Madilyn Paige has made a splash on The Voice. Family musical groups, like Jenny Oaks Baker & Family Four haul their instruments around the world to play. And sibling actors Mia, Anson and Ari Bagley thrill audiences onstage and on their hit family YouTube channel Working With Lemons. So many young talented artists are making a splash in the music industry.
In The Rising Generation, you’ll get a first-hand look at the perseverance that all of these driven young people have, especially when making it in the world of the entertainment business is really difficult. You’ll also find out how these local young LDS performers hold on to their values in a tough industry, stay driven yet well-rounded, and how they’ve managed to see their hopes and dreams realized long before they thought possible.
