For the song “Light the World” – also released on Evie’s YouTube channel on 3 December 2017 – composer Sara Lyn Baril (the author of the song) and her son Benson traveled from their home in Canada to record and film the video in collaboration with Step UP Schools, Mormon.org, and the Salvation Army. The message of the song was brought to life as Evie and Benson participated in various service projects, including preparing food boxes and hygiene kits for families in need, and reading to, and playing with the students.
