Ugandan Kids Choir to give concert at Friedens UCC in Troy

The Ugandan Kids Choir, a group of 10 talented Ugandan children, has announced that they will be performing at Friedens United Church of Christ on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 6 p.m.

All 10 children have been given hope through Childcare Worldwide’s Sponsorship Program, and now they are here to spread that hope to audiences all across the United States. The choir has performed nationwide at churches, schools, at Disneyland, on King 5 Television’s New Day Northwest, at Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks, and on the steps of the White House.

These children delight audiences with traditional African songs and dances.

“All of you have amazing talents, beautiful voices and some serious dance skills. A performance like yours was a once in a lifetime opportunity. We fully support you on your mission to end child poverty,” said Megan DiRienzo, curator of education at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.

The Ugandan Kids Choir is a ministry of Childcare Worldwide, which has been dedicated to empowering children in the developing world since 1981. Through child sponsorship, Childcare Worldwide brings hope to children in need by providing them with an education that will set them up for future employment and break the cycle of poverty in their lives.

By coming to this event, you will enjoy traditional African song and dance, as well as help children in need all around the world.
