The internationally acclaimed African Children’s Choir will present the Young Africans in Our African Dream tour at St. John’s Lutheran on Sunday, at 10 a.m.
The Young Africans are singers, musicians and dancers who were all once a part of the world-renowned African Children’s Choir. Now 17 to 21 years old , they are poised to fulfill their promise and make a difference in their communities back home.
Our African Dream showcases African dance and music, while also bringing new life to American spirituals, contemporary worship songs and gospel.
Proceeds from concert performances allow the African Children’s Choir to raise global awareness of the plight of the millions of orphaned and abandoned children in Africa. Donations directly support the expansion of sponsorship and education programs for both the current choir children and the thousands of other students they represent.
The Music for Life Institute’s purpose is to help create new leadership for tomorrow’s Africa. Working in seven African countries, MFLI has educated more than 52,000 children and made an impact on the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history.
Concerts are free and open to all. A free-will offering is taken at the performance to support African Children’s Choir programs.
