Ugan­dan choir brings mes­sage of hope

Geraldton Guardian - - Guardian News -

Ger­ald­ton res­i­dents are in­vited to hear a vis­it­ing chil­dren’s choir from Africa per­form at a free per­for­mance to­mor­row.

All mem­bers of the Wa­toto Chil­dren’s Choir are or­phans liv­ing in Wa­toto vil­lages in Uganda.

Spokes­woman Cathy Beauchamp said Wa­toto Chil­dren’s Choirs had trav­elled ex­ten­sively since 1994, shar­ing a mes­sage of hope for Africa’s or­phans and wid­ows.

“To date, the choir has toured six con­ti­nents and per­formed to en­thralled au­di­ences in schools, re­tire­ment homes, churches, Par­lia­ments, State houses and royal palaces,” she said.

“Each child in the Wa­toto Chil- dren’s Choir has suf­fered the loss of one or both par­ents and now lives in a Wa­toto vil­lage.

“The ex­pe­ri­ence of trav­el­ling in a choir helps the chil­dren to de­velop con­fi­dence and bold­ness, as well as broad­en­ing their world­view.”

The choir will per­form at Sun City Chris­tian Cen­tre, Kar­loo, to­mor­row at 6.30pm.

Wa­toto singers Es­ther, Vanessa and Miriam. The choir will per­form a free con­cert in Ger­ald­ton to­mor­row.
