Watoto Children's Choir Concert
6:30 p.m., February 8, 2013
The Watoto Children’s Choir will give a Concert of Hope at 6:30 p.m. in St. Andrew’s Hall on Friday, February 8. There is no cost for the concert, but a love gift offering will be received. Because space is limited, tickets are required and are available in the Welcome Center on Sundays or in the church office during regular workday hours. You may also contact Mallory Sides, 706.262.8827, to reserve a seat.
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.
“Through the choir’s Concert of Hope, we share a message of transformation by telling the story of Africa’s rescued orphans and women. We hope to reach out to audiences with the message of Christ’s healing power,” says Gary Skinner, Watoto Founder.
Since its inception, 50 choirs have traveled globally, providing the children with a bigger worldview, an unusual opportunity they would otherwise never get. The choirs have been to Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Europe, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and USA, among others. Their audiences have included royalty, presidents, ministers and the common people alike, capturing many hearts wherever they go.
