A new Web site launched today at This site with top-rated LDS music provides a rich and flexible platform for online music lovers to stream, download, and enjoy both prominent and up-and-coming LDS musical selections—from jazz piano and classical guitar to inspirational vocals and seasonal choral numbers.

Featured artists include Abe Mills, Jon Schmidt, Hilary Weeks, Kenneth Cope, Michael Dowdle, Jessie Clark Funk, Jenny Oaks Baker, Sam Payne, and scores more. You’ll also find over 800 musical selections from newly-discovered LDS singers and musicians worldwide, performing in their native language.

The site was created by the More Good Foundation, a non-profit creator of quality Web sites, social networks, and virtual communities that facilitate peer-to-peer dialog between Mormons and friends of all faiths online. This is an impressive milestone for the More Good Foundation and its developer Heather Newell.  Site features include user-generated playlists (by topic, genre or artist), customized user profiles (with favorite albums, videos, and most recently played songs), ranking of favorites, selected free downloads, LDS music news, and variable, embeddable playlists. The site also highlights each artist, sharing not only their music and upcoming venues, but their lives and beliefs through personal biographies, photo and video galleries, and links to the artists’ own Web sites and blogs.

The site’s vision, according to the foundation’s President, Jonathan Johnson, “is multi-dimensional. First, it is a way to extend the powerful, spirit-filled, expressive medium of music to those across the globe from Kiev to Quatar, some of whom may not have immediate or any access to affordable LDS CDs—providing them with some free downloadable selections of quality orchestral, instrumental, or vocal music streaming in their homes that might not otherwise be possible. Secondly, the site is intended to be a gathering place for friends of other faiths to have a glimpse into our lives and music. By getting to know our artists, listening to uplifting music and reading about their faith-infused lives, misperceptions about us as a people will likely be dispelled and doors opened to conversations about our beliefs.”
