The African Children’s Choir performed to a full house at the Summerland Baptist Church on Sunday evening.
The Choir was founded by Ray Barnett in 1984 and is composed of African children aged 7 to 10 years. Many have lost one or both parents through the devastation of war, famine and disease.
They are selected on the basis of need, their attitude and willingness to learn. They are auditioned to see if they are musical and have the ability to dance. They will tour for approximately 12 months. Helping Africa’s most vulnerable children today, so they can help Africa tomorrow is the mission of Music for Life-home of the African Children’s Choir.
The funds raised on the tour go towards the education of each touring child as well as to the fundraising efforts of this organization, as they work towards improving the lives of thousands of African children. To learn more and to find out how you can help go to africanchildrenschoir.com.
