Description:"It takes your breath away just watching them dance and sing. It’s such a beautiful experience it’s hard to explain in words." - Reverend Joe Muth A pre-semester treat and celebration of African arts!

The African Children’s Choir is comprised of African children ages 7-12 from many African nations who have endured a lifetime of extreme poverty. Since it’s founding in 1984, the choir has released numerous recordings and has performed with Mariah Carey and has been featured on The Tonight Show, the Ellen DeGeneres Show, and American Idol, among others.

Their program promotes the beauty, dignity and unlimited ability of the African child around the world, being a voice for the millions of suffering children who cannot speak for themselves. The program provides for the children’s well being and quality education, utilizing the transformative power of music. This is the second event of a three-part subseries concerning Africa.
