Between the original songs taken from the musical and three hymns written by Pratt's own hand, the musical program, accompanied by narrations, will explore the life and role of Pratt as written in his autobiography.
"He's human and we can relate to him as human - a real person that had thoughts and feelings," Eisenhour said."We just sometimes put these people on pedestals.

BYU professor Kelly ..., 18 July 2007 [cached]
BYU professor Kelly Eisenhour takes her skills as a jazz vocalist to bring harmony to the classroom, creating a relaxed environment that swings and drives her students to becoming mature musicians.
Eisenhour lives every part of her life in rhythm, sometimes speeding up, sometimes slowing down, but there are always constant beats of music driving her life.
The music started for Eisenhour when she was 6 years old.
"The story goes that my piano teacher told my mother that I was very musical and to never let me quit," Eisenhour said."It was obvious at an early age that this was my talent, and I was very active in music all through school."
Throughout her life she was inspired by jazz musicians, and developed a passion for jazz.
"My father was a role model because he was so passionate about jazz music," Eisenhour said."It was always playing in my home when I was young."
The constant playing of jazz music in the Eisenhour home propelled Eisenhour through her career, with some of her first musical steps taken near her home, beginning her singing career in her hometown of Tucson, Ariz.She would later travel the United States singing with groups like the Boston Pops and stars like Gladys Knight.Her knowledge of jazz and rich expressions impressed some of the top artists in the country.
"Eisenhour is very humble; she's a lot better than anyone else gives her credit for," said Andrew Burton from North Potomac, Md., who has played the bass for the BYU Jazz Voices directed by Eisenhour."Eisenhour is very humble; she's a lot better than anyone else gives her credit for," said Andrew Burton from North Potomac, Md., who has played the bass for the BYU Jazz Voices directed by Eisenhour.
Eisenhour has succeeded in an industry that does not often picture rich deep tones come from someone like her.
Her vocal talented prompted Gladys Knight to invite her to tour with musicians like Patty LaBelle and Dionne Warwick, but the rhythm that drives Eisenhour pushed her elsewhere.
Knight would later invite her to sing backup in her Las Vegas show and later Eisenhour assisted Knight in forming the Saints Unified Voices Gospel Choir.
Afterward, Eisenhour was invited to teach jazz at BYU.
"I spent most of my career performing but always thought that I would enjoy teaching," Eisenhour said.
Her classes continue her life's rhythm; however, she never gets overwhelmed by taking periodic rests to let the beat stand out.
After listening to her students get a feel for the day, Eisenhour pushes the rhythm.
"Kelly can see the potential in all her students, you know with every soloist that some were amazing and some had work to do, but she saw the potential in everyone," Burton said.
"It is very exciting to watch students grow and develop in their music," Eisenhour said."I am in awe of the Lord's gifts unique to each of us."
Eisenhour teaches her students that music allows people to express themselves more freely, she said.Some of her students feel music can be a spiritual experience, like sharing a testimony.
"Although jazz music is not necessarily sacred music, it is music that is joyous and creative and connects people," Eisenhour said. - Express your opinion: Bioturbation, 3 Sept 2012 [cached]
