Christmas Concert - the Performance

What an exciting, scary, beautiful night.

Thank you so much to our family and friends who came to support us! We really appreciate your love and kindness. A special thank you to our parents, Craig and Cynthia Gale, without whom none of this would have happened. We feel blessed to be your children.

This afternoon we had a blizzard here in Utah. Some of our guest performers weren't able to make it to the concert and we greatly missed them. Hopefully they'll be able to perform with us at a future event.

Here's the only picture we were able to find from the actual concert. Our friend Michael Burton (who filmed our music video for "One World") recorded the concert for us. Hoping to get a copy soon to post on YouTube. :)
