The excited and anxious SFHS Chamber Singers, directed by Shea Bradshaw and Aimoku Higa (eye-ee-moku Hega), were invited to BLESS the lives of the people who work in the LDS Administration Building by performing the Christmas songs that they worked so hard to prepare for.  They met early in the morning (before the sun was even close to being up) on December 16th to start their journey to Salt Lake City.
