- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
Baha’i Blog’s “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 Chicago, USA with The Friends in Chicago singing “Chicago”, based on an excerpt from a talk given by Abdu’l-Baha.
The Friends in Chicago are: Jeremy, Adeeb, Anahita, Danika, and Savva.
This song was filmed and recorded in Chicago, USA, December, 2018.
