Four free ways to listen to uplifting LDS music 24 hours a day

We are so blessed that we can listen to FREE uplifting music anytime, anywhere using a computer or mobile device! 


1. Mormon Channel -- On the top of the screen click on radio, then streams, then Mormon Music Channel. 




2. Mormon Tabernacle Choir 24/7 Music Stream




3. Your LDS Radio




4. And of course Pandora has lots of uplifting music stations. You can listen for free with ads, or pay for a subscription with no ads. 

Note: if you listen to more than holy music on Pandora, you may see some inappropriate ads. It seems that they tailor the ads to the type of music you listen to. My friend who alerted me about the ads said that Grooveshark is a similar service but without ads.



These are some of my favorite Pandora stations. Some of these have LDS music and some don't.

  • Mormon Tabernacle Choir
  • Handel
  • The Messiah
  • Celtic Women
  • Piano
  • Jenny Jordan Frogley
  • Paul Cardall (this has a lot of LDS piano songs)
  • The Battle Hymn of the Republic
  • David Archuletta
  • John Schmitt
  • The Piano Guys
  • Gabriel's Message
  • Josh Groban
  • Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband 
  • Josh Groban
  • Hymns 4 Worship
  • LDS Hymns of Worship 
  • Hymns 
  • Hilary Weeks
  • Christofori's Dream

Here are some great quotes about the power and blessings of holy music.

What are your favorite ways to use holy music? 

Wanna take a three day holy music challenge? 

For three days, any time you listen to music, listen only to holy music. (I think there is value in quiet time where there's no music too.) As your family gets ready for the day, play holy music. During times of the day when your family members may tend to fight or bug each other, play holy music ahead of time and see if the spirit of the music helps prevent contention. Play holy music before bedtime to go to sleep with a feeling of peace. Then write in your journal anything you notice. Did your family members get along better? Did you feel less stressed and more peaceful? Was there more harmony and less contention? Did you feel more joy?  Did this experience make you want to change your music habits? I'd love to hear your thoughts and results in the comments below!

My favorite music is on youth.lds.org. They have a link for tons of free music you can download. It is so cute to hear my kids singing these sones as we work around the house.

Melissa,

Thank you for that idea. I didn't realize they have free downloadable music. What a great resource!

One other way to listen to good music is on Spotify. In fact, there are LDS-themed stations you can subscribe to - or you can just create your own playlists of your favorites.
