The African Children’s Choir is made up of children from the poorest countries of the world who have lost one or both parents to poverty or disease. Since its inception in 1984 over 52,000 children have been educated through the efforts of the Choir’s programs and over 100,000 people have been helped through their relief and development programs throughout the 7 countries the organization serves.
Their voices have been heard by world leaders and top entertainers, and most recently, they performed the official Diamond Jubilee song “Sing” composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow at the most publicized event and celebration in the world, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
