In a new Father’s Day music video, Brigham Young University’s Young Ambassadors remind us all that Father’s Day doesn’t just honor our earthly dads and grandpas, but also our Father in Heaven. Their rendition of the simple Primary song “My Heavenly Father Loves Me” sends a beautiful reminder that everyone has a Father to celebrate this Father’s Day, no matter their situation.
The music video features guest violinist Megumi Terry, as well as the family and friends of the Young Ambassadors. Randy Boothe, who is the artistic director for the Young Ambassadors, created the vocal arrangement, with Michael Biancardi composing the orchestration. The Young Ambassadors have performed “My Heavenly Father Loves Me” as an encore for the past three decades.
Made up of full-time students at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, BYU’s Young Ambassadors travel the world as a contemporary song and dance troupe, performing the best of American theater and culture to audiences worldwide. Visiting 68 countries since 1970, their most recent spring performances have led them to South Africa and Zimbabwe.
Their new music video, filmed at Ashton Gardens at Thanksgiving Point, brings them close to home and family for Father’s Day. However, the music video also reminds them that no matter where they travel, they can always feel the love of their Heavenly Father.
“I love this song because it teaches such a simple yet powerful truth—there is a God who loves you,” BYU Young Ambassador Megan Sackett described. “As we recorded it, it made me think of the little things in life that our Heavenly Father has given me to show His love, from the great big sky all the way down to the song of a bird. I have felt the love of God, and we hope that as others listen to the music they can feel that love too.”
