WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

An Uplifting Evening of Music and Hope In Celebration of Black History Month The 20 talented kids who make up this choir come from Kenya and Uganda. All the children have lost one or both parents to poverty, war or AIDS. The choir has been going for more than two decades now, and all the funds it raises go back into looking after the kids and providing them with an education. Their joyful performance blends song and dance from the entire continent of Africa; featuring more than ten languages, unique cultural dancing, and of course, uplifting gospel music. This inspirational choir has gained international acclaim performing on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, and American Idol; alongside Mariah Carey and Sir Paul McCartney in Live 8 in London; and at Nelson Mandela's AIDS awareness concert in South Africa.
