According to him, he has been working for the said music video for over 4 years. The idea of creating a video first came as he started to serve a mission. “As a missionary, I had a lot of free time on p-days and I discovered that I loved flipping through the hymn book and coming up with interesting arrangements to my favorite hymns, he said.
Nick told his viewers that “As the arrangement started coming together for “If You Could Hie To Kolob”, the idea hit me that this would make an awesomely epic music video. I instantly knew that I wanted to film it at the Salt Flats in Utah, because since this hymn talks about Kolob, which is another planet, I wanted to film at a place that looked like another planet, and the Salt Flats fits that image perfectly.”
Nick also explained that his goal is divided into two parts. “My goal for this video has two parts. Part one: to give members of the church the opportunity to listen to a modern arrangement of a timeless sacred hymn, and part two: to have those who aren’t members of the church listen to this song and think “Wow, this is pretty good!” and then realize that it’s actually a hymn from the LDS church.
He also invite others to learn more about the church, saying: “If you are one of those people who don’t know much about the Mormon church, I invite you to learn more about it at mormon.org.”
He can feel that God is doing missionary work in very unique ways, and he felt blessed to be a part of that. “I’ve seen too many miracles happen for this video to come together,” he told his viewers “and I know that this is a small thing I can do to help bring others closer to Christ” he concluded.
