Living Legends

Making History and Giving Charity

BYU Living Legends has completed the second week of their tour in Brazil. They began their week by visiting Iguazu Falls, the largest waterfall system in the world. As part of the tour of the falls, the students embarked on a covered boat ride that took them directly into the falls.

Along with this amazing experience, Living Legends also made school history by being the first BYU group to ever perform in the city of Foz do Iguaçu. In conjunction with the performance, the local stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints partnered with the mayor’s office to collaborate on a goodwill project. They offered one show ticket in exchange for a donation of a kilogram of nonperishable food, which would be given to local families in need. This food-ticket exchange took place at nine locations throughout the city. The performance drew a crowd of nearly 2,000 people.

Local media in Goiania helped to promote the group’s performance by interviewing BYU student Manases Cuessy as other Living Legends members dance in the background.

The audience cheered on Jaysen Valdes and other members of the group who performed a native Brazilian dance during the show.
