Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Toronto, Canada with Michael Ferguson and Laura Friedmann singing “Radiant Heart” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Toronto, Canada in December 2017.
