“The money that’s raised is going to support 35 different education programs over seven countries, so the children you see on the stage are really helping thousands of other kids get an education. They truly are ambassadors for the kids back home.”

NEWTON — The energy, smiles and songs of 20 children from Uganda will be seen on stage Sunday in Newton.

The internationally renowned African Children’s Choir will perform at 10:30 a.m. July 30 at First Presbyterian Church, 900 N. Columbus in Newton.

As they tour, the children participate in schooling and raise funds through their concerts for themselves and others in Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, South Sudan, South Africa, Nigeria and Ghana.

“The money that’s raised is going to support 35 different education programs over seven countries, so the children you see on the stage are really helping thousands of other kids get an education,” explained Tina Sipp, choir manager. “They truly are ambassadors for the kids back home.”

 

The children perform an 80-minute concert of contemporary Christian music, standard gospel favorites and ethnic worship songs accompanied by a 17-piece synchronized African drum ensemble.

“It’s really kind of intricate; it changes as they dance as well as drum,” Sipp said. “It’s an audience-pleaser for sure.”
