Libertad – Hispanic Worship Ensemble
Leon directs Liberty University’s “Libertad” ensemble. Libertad is the Center for Music and Worship’s Latio praise band. This team of 11 students utilizes music and languages from cultures around the globe to lead people in worship. He says “Libertad is more than a hispanic praise band,” as they have led in songwriting workshops, helped with producing music, and helped to build worship centers. Last year Libertad traveled to minister and serve the Nicaraguan people. Leon says, “Nicaragua is an impoverished area with no Christian music industry.” Now, Libertad is collaborating with Nicaragua in writing, recording, and publishing Christian music in their style and language. In the near future, Leon hopes to take Libertad back to Nicaragua and equip its people to write songs in their own language and style.
