World-renowned musical ambassadors, The African Children’s Choir, bring their exciting 2011 World Tour to Tulsa, for a one-night-only, energy-packed performance you won’t want to miss!
Green Country Event Center/Garnett Church of Christ January 22, 2010 6 p.m. Free Concert (Love Offering will be taken)
In 1984, when human rights activist Ray Barnett was summoned to help the thousands of orphaned, abandoned and starving children in war-torn Uganda, he and his team were inspired one day by the singing of one small boy, and decided to form the first African Children’s Choir to show the world that Africa’s most vulnerable children have beauty, dignity and unlimited ability, and could serve as a mouthpiece for change, one child at a time.
The African Children’s Choir has performed to packed audiences around the globe, from major churches to every major TV network--including American Idol--to guest appearances with Christian music superstars Michael W. Smith, Josh Groban, and many others. Over its twenty-six years, The African Children’s Choir has helped hundreds of ACC choir tour members realize not only their own personal dreams of a better life, but to duplicate those dreams for many thousands of other African needy children through tour proceeds and sponsorships that provide quality education, food, shelter and medical assistance. Don’t miss this unique opportunity; make your plans now to see The African Children’s Choir in concert on January 22nd, 2010, presented by Garnett Church of Christ and Green Country Event Center. Admission is free. For more information, call 663-3000.
