Young Africans Choir Comes To Chattanooga Churches In December

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

The Young Africans are a group of singers, musicians and dancers who were all once a part of the world-renowned African Children’s Choir. Now 20-22 years old, they are poised to fulfill their promise and make a difference in their communities back home.  They will be preforming in concerts throughout Chattanooga in December.

Throughout the performance The Young Africans share various cultural elements from their countries of Kenya and Uganda with a Stomp inspired dance as well as highlighting unique African instruments. 

Concerts are free and open to all. A free-will offering is taken at the performances to support African Children’s Choir programs, such as education, care and relief and development programs.

Music for Life (parent organization) works in seven African countries such as Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa.   MFL has educated over 52,000 children and impacted the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history. MFL purpose is to help create new leadership for tomorrow’s Africa, by focusing on education.

The Young Africans toured North America in 2012 where they sang in churches, schools, theatres, and as special guests on Michael W. Smith’s tour. “What a joy it has been to be involved with The Young Africans. You guys are special and I can’t wait to work together again,” he said.
