DESOTO, TX – Come join the 39th African Children’s Choir as they perform in our community during their US Tour. The Choir will be performing at the Civic Center, 211 E. Pleasant Run Rd., DeSoto, Texas on Friday, January 11, 2013 at 7:00 pm. Come and experience a performance that shows the beauty, dignity and potential of each African child! Admission will be free for all ages; a free-will offering will follow the Choir’s concert.
The African Children’s Choir melts the hearts of audiences with their charming smiles, beautiful voices and lively African songs and dances. The program features well-loved children’s songs, traditional Spirituals and rhythmic Gospel favorites. Nearly every performance is concluded with a thunderous standing ovation! In spite of the tragedy that has marred their young lives, the children are radiant with hope, musically gifted and always wonderfully entertaining.
The free-will offering will help support the Music for Life Institute. The African Children’s Choir has been Music for Life’s major international program during its 27-year history. Music for Life Institute (MFLI) has relief and development programs in seven African countries. MFLI has currently educated over 52,000 children and hundreds of thousands of lives have been impacted by Music for Life Institute’s international relief and development programs.
