A MORMON Russian Rockstar?

Meet Vasily, a Mormon living in Moscow, that found harmony, faith, and love through Mormonism. Vasily believes that music is a way to bless the lives of others. For him, it is the tool that God uses to help us change and develop.


“I play music and sing because God blesses me with inspiration. And I hope that the music I make, play, and sing, might bless the lives of people who, maybe, never would have felt what they did, if I hadn’t made it. And I’m positive that the instrument in God’s hands is music. And in this way, we come closer to him.”

Important: AFTER you press play, you can turn on the English subtitles by clicking the closed caption box at the bottom right of the video frame.

Prior to making that video, Vasily was filmed interviewed by an independent group of Mormons about his faith. This video of Vasily’s story is the fourth installment of five videos about Russian Mormons. Please help share his story! Pin it. Facebook it. Embed it. And send out emails.

This video is also up on http://мормон.рф (an all Russian site) and contains some additional biographical information.

I served my mission for the LDS Church in Russia, Vladivostok. About a year ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to help editing one of these  videos for the More Good Foundation. The other videos in this series can be found on the YouTube channel MormonRF.
