The African Children's Choir is coming to Statesboro New Covenant Church on Sunday.
The African Children's Choir melts the hearts of audiences with charming smiles, beautiful voices and lively African songs and dances. The program features well-loved children's songs, traditional spirituals and gospel favorites.
Concerts are free and open to all. A free-will offering is taken at the performance to support African Children's Choir programs in such areas as education, care, and relief and development.
Music for Life, the choir's parent organization, works in seven African countries: Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. The organization has educated more than 52,000 children and touched the lives of more than 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history. Its purpose is to help create new leadership for tomorrow's Africa by focusing on education.
The choir has had the privilege of performing for presidents, heads of state and, most recently, Queen Elizabeth II for her diamond jubilee. The choir also has had the honor of singing alongside artists such as Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Michael W. Smith.
The African Children's Choir is a nonprofit humanitarian and relief organization dedicated to helping Africa's most vulnerable children today so they can help Africa tomorrow.
The performance is scheduled for 10 a.m. Sunday at Statesboro New Covenant Church, 701 Gentilly Road. For more information, call the church office at (912) 681-6777 or visit www.sncconline.com.
