All funds raised on Sunday evening will go to the African Children’s Choir and their education programs. The African Children’s Choir has educated over 52,000 children in the last 30 years and helped over 100,000 people through relief and development programs in Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, Rwanda, Ghana, Nigera and South Africa.
The African Children’s Choir is composed of African children, aged 7 to 10 years old. Many have lost one or both parents through the devastation of war, famine and disease. They represent all the children of a continent and they demonstrate the potential of African children to become strong leaders for a better future in their land.
Over the past twenty years, the children have appeared in thousands of concerts around the world, including concerts at the Pentagon and the United Nations. They have been featured on popular television and radio broadcasts such as “GMTV” and “Blue Peter”. The Choir has had the privilege of performing at the Royal Albert Hall, London as part of the BBC Proms series. More recently they performed at the Commonwealth Observance Day in the presence of The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh at Westminster Abbey. Already on this tour they have met the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese at her residence in Dublin and with the First Minister, Peter Robinson and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness at Stormont Castle, Belfast.
