“It’s difficult to tell who is having more fun – the choir or the audience.” The Scotsman (U.K.)

“Radiating joy, enthusiasm, and optimism, the African Children’s Choir has the ability to totally transfix an audience.”

The African Children’s Choir was founded in war-torn Uganda by human rights activist Ray Barnett. His goal? To show the world that the orphaned and impoverished children of the choir – like millions of their peers in Africa – have beauty, dignity and unlimited potential. Their heartfelt, soaring performances blend uplifting traditional music and dance from throughout Africa, including joyful gospel songs, spirituals and children’s tunes. This inspiring, Grammy-nominated choir has gained international acclaim performing on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show and American Idol and alongside superstars like Mariah Carey, Sir Paul McCartney and Oprah Winfrey.
