This Little Light of Mine
Did you see the video we did with Mercy Housing over the holidays? We were so proud to work on this project, and it was a blast as well! Share your light with Mercy Housing from Mercy Housing on Vimeo. A group of young Mercy Housing residents got the unique opportunity to spend the day in a professional recording studio with the popular Denver band Bop Skizzum. Together they created a wonderful cover of “This Little Light of Mine.” We hope it will fill your hearts with joy and that you will share your light with Mercy Housing!
