The 48th African Children’s Choir has commended its U.S.A tour to over 35 location across the country.
This report confirmed 8 January, comes days since the 47th Choir, arrived safely home in Uganda this week.
“This group brought joy, love and the beauty of African music and culture to thousands of people across the USA and Canada,” a statement issued said.
The Choirs are composed of African children, aged 7 to 10 years old. Many have lost one or both parents through the devastation of war, famine and disease.
CEO and founder of the African Children’s Choir, Ray Barnett says the youngsters represent all the children of a continent and they demonstrate the potential of African children to become strong leaders for a better future in their land.
During their performances, the children melt the hearts of audiences with their charming smiles and delightful African tunes, accompanied by ethnic instrumentation.
The program features well-loved children’s songs, hand clapping, traditional spirituals and contemporary tunes. Nearly every performance is concluded with a thunderous standing ovation.
“A marvelous by-product of the concert is the inspiration the music brings to virtually every listener. In spite of the tragedy that has marred their young lives, the children are radiant with hope, musically gifted and wonderfully entertaining,” The Management says.
Adding: “The primary goal of the Choir is to raise awareness of the need of destitute and orphaned children in Africa and to raise funds for continued development and support of the African Children’s Choir Programs. The Choir’s international educational endeavor provides unique training for the children. Once Choir members have completed a concert tour, they will return to their homelands with the tools necessary for bettering their future.”
