The Spotlight Song

Children’s voices and piano


For several years, I played the piano for Primary every Sunday, where I get to hang out with kids ages 3 to 11.  When I was a kid in Primary, they had a “child of the month” or “child of the week” or “star child” or something, which was basically a way to help the kids get to know each other.  In our ward, we now do a similar activity called the Spotlight.

I wrote this song to go with the spotlight activity.  Activity instructions, sheet music, and song actions are included in the one-page PDF file below.  It’s short and ridiculously simple, so it’s good for use with even young kids.

This song is purely an activity/action song.  It contains no doctrine and teaches no Gospel concepts, although the activity associated with it can teach a few basic true principles.

Check out the Primary page on for links to other pieces that are good for use with children.
