It might seem impossible. A group of young people brought together just a year ago from across Serbia with one aim, to form the LINK youth choir. Yet their sincere enthusiasm and deep motivation is infectious, and despite obstacles of distance, age and temperament, the LINK choir is garnering success.
The youth range in age from elementary school to university students, some of them live more than 400km apart in different Serbian cities and towns, and, quite naturally, they have varied temperaments and characters. But as the title of one of their songs says, “I Can Do Everything with Jesus“.
Their goal? Firstly, to connect and become true friends through music. Then to connect with those who can be reached by their music. But most of all, they want to give glory to God and reconnect with their Maker, King and Saviour in a deeper and more meaningful way. That is the reason for their name LINK: building connections and relationships with others.
They have already made some giant steps, working hard and diligently practicing during the past 12 months.
Their first performances were as special guests at a humanitarian concert with the singing group “Vesnik“ (Messenger), then at Youth Fellowship days. They also performed last August during the European Pastors’ Council in Belgrade.
Now they have released their first CD which was promoted during their first concert in the Central Adventist church in Belgrade on 24 November 2018. They have also recorded captivating music videos, which are available to view on their website and YouTube. They have even made a song book of their original compositions and have made it available to their audience.
For 2019 they have new plans and bigger dreams. They aim to travel from place to place to glorify God through concerts and by sharing His message of love and hope. While they still face several obstacles, they are bravely pressing forward believing that God is guiding them and making their path easier.
