Watoto Children’s Choir
September 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFREE
On September 15 at 6 p.m., Watoto, an NGO in Uganda, East Africa, presents the Watoto Children’s Choir performing their brand new album, “We Will Go.” As part of the 6-month tour, the choir will perform at Eastridge Church, 24205 SE Issaquah Fall City Rd, Issaquah, WA 98029. The event presents the story of abandoned African children and vulnerable women, who’ve been empowered to rise above their circumstances, and answer the call to be part of the new Africa – ready to make a difference in the world.
Watoto Children’s Choirs have traveled extensively since 1994, sharing a message of hope for Africa’s most vulnerable children and women. On almost every day of the year, the choir is performing somewhere in the world. Hundreds of thousands of people get to meet some of Africa’s future leaders. People see their smiles and are embraced by their hugs. The children have the distinct privilege of telling people, “It’s possible to have joy, to laugh and to have hope, no matter what you’re going through.”
Like Africa, the production is vibrant and colorful, taking you on an emotional journey from utter despair to joyous celebration, as the children and women share their personal stories of triumph in story and song.
Other than coming to Africa yourself, what better way to learn about all the good things happening in Uganda than through this stirring, musical experience.
Proceeds made from the album will help Watoto provide vulnerable children and women with homes, education, medical care, and most of all the love of a family.
