Performed entirely by children, this inspirational show blends joyful song and dance from across the African continent. Like millions of their peers, these children were orphaned by war or AIDS. With traditional instruments, incredible costumes, geographic video projections, over 10 African languages, and boundless enthusiasm, these young ambassadors show the world that Africa’s most vulnerable children have beauty, dignity, and unlimited ability. Through the music, the choir helps these children today, so they can help Africa tomorrow.
