African Children's Choir to sing Wednesday
SPRINGFIELD - The African Children's Choir will give a free concert on Wednesday.
The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at Thurston Christian Church, 6680 Thurston Road.
An offering will be taken to support the choir's education, care and relief programs in Africa. Focusing on education, the choir cares for more than 7,000 children in Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria and Ghana.
The children who sing in the choir have come from extreme poverty.
The African Children's Choir recently celebrated its 25th anniversary with a gala to raise funds for a new African Children's Choir Primary School on the shores of Lake Victoria in Uganda.
