If you missed them in Red Deer, there’s another chance to hear singers from the African Children’s Choir perform in Clive.

The boisterous young vocalists and dancers, who performed last night at a Red Deer-area church, will be entertaining again at the Clive Baptist Church on Monday, June 16.

The African Children’s Choir has performed traditional spirituals, beloved children’s songs, and African folk songs for audiences across the globe, including the Queen of England and various heads of state. The choir has also sung along with artists Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and others.

Children’s choirs were formed in seven African countries, including Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and the Sudan by the non-profit humanitarian organization Music for Life.

It’s educated over 52,000 children and helped more than 100,000 people through relief and development programs.

Music for Life’s goal is to help create new leadership for tomorrow by focusing on education.

There’s no admission charge to the 7 p.m. concert, but donations are welcome.
