Beautiful Africa: A New Generation
Watoto is thrilled to present a brand new choir tour entitled Beautiful Africa: A New Generation. With vibrant, original African music, dance routines, life-transforming stories, the tour is indicative of the new generation of leaders emerging out of Watoto.
With its genuine appeal, accompanied by music and dance – an energetic fusion of contemporary gospel and traditional African rhythm – the globally acclaimed Watoto Children’s Choir has traveled internationally since 1994 as ambassadors for the millions of children in Africa, orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, war and poverty.Each of the children in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both parents. They live in Watoto Children’s Villages where they receive the care and nurture they need to grow up as productive citizens of their country.
The choir will present a free concert on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at the Liberty Theater in Astoria. The concert starts at 7 PM.
