African Children's Choir 26
The Choir currently touring the East Coast of the United States will be arriving in Canada on February 15, 2006. This Choir is comprised of 22 children from Uganda. Two of the chaperones traveling with the children have been with the African Children's Choir since their own childhood; Florence was a child in Choir 4 and Jackson grew up in the first orphanage that the organization sponsored.
We are so proud of both Florence and Jackson as they completed college through sponsorship with Music For Life. This Choir began their tour in Miami, Florida in December of 2004. Their tour route consists of the east coast region of the United States. Early on in their tour, they performed in a concert opening for the Newsboys. They charmed onlookers as they sang in front of the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. While in New York City they visited the statue of liberty and saw the city from the top of the Empire State Building.
