Singer Levixone and Jay K Mulungi (vocalist) from popular Ugandan band, Undercover Brothers Ug set out starting November to visit the UK and Ireland along with songwriter and worship leader, Nathan Jess as part of ‘The Storytellers Tour’ by Fields Of Life (FOL), an NGO that seeks to deliver educational opportunities and build capacity providing sustainable community development.
This tour started days after Levixone had wrapped up the Charity concert at the Uganda Museum – Kampala aimed at fundraising to build a school in Nakapiripirit district, Karamoja region.
Testimony after testimony, Levixone and his team (Alumni of FOL) opened up to audiences abroad about how simply knowing that their school fees was covered allowed them to gain the education that their parents could never afford.
“If anyone doubted the impact of sponsoring children then these guys eliminated any need for a jury. It was inspirational. During the show one or two of them met their sponsors for the first time, this raised the emotions and increased the tears,” Steve Stockman, an author who attended one of the tour meetings in Northern Ireland remarked.
The over eight (8) tours, expected to end Thursday 23rd November in New Beacon Centre, Sevenoaks, Kent, have been associated with vibrancy and packed with both contemporary and traditional African songs of worship, celebration and hope.
“I have come to realize that the World’s most famous and popular language is music, I was so overwhelmed by the love from the lovely people of Republic of Ireland and Nothern Ireland – Belfast, Cork, Bandon, Bray, Ballymena, Amargh, newtownbreda, you couldn’t understand all the words in my songs but we felt the spirit of God in the midst of all the concerts,” Levixone said Monday on social media, quoting Psalms 95:1.
