Members of The African Children’s Choir have performed presidents, sung alongside such artists as Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Michael W. Smith, have performed for Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee and have melted the hearts of audiences all over the world with their charming smiles and delightful tunes.
This month music lovers from around New Enland will be able to hear the children sing traditional spirituals, Gospel favorites and African tunes in various locations from Warwick, to New London, and Norwich to Providence.
The choir, composed of African children from 7 to 10 years old, represent all the children of Africa and demonstrate the potential of African children to become strong leaders for a better future in their land. Many have lost one or both parents through the devastation of war, famine and disease.
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 byproduct of the concert is the inspiration the music brings to listeners. In spite of the tragedy that has marred their young lives, the children are radiant with hope, musically gifted and wonderfully entertaining.
