LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WLFI) - The African Children's Choir is a celebrating their 50th touring choir tonight in Logansport.

The non-profit is partnered with Music for Life. Their goal is to bring happiness to Africa's most vulnerable children by giving them a glimpse of different cultures and teaching them English. Children not only perform hymns but also dance and play musical instruments.

Head Teacher Justine Namayeengo says attendees should expect to see great joy in their children's eyes.
“They should come expecting to see great joy and also be blessed by these young people,” said Namayeengo. ”These little people are full of energy, full of happiness, full of joy that they are ready to spread that joy to the rest of the audience that will be around,”

The event will be held at Life Gate Church in Logansport at 7:00 p-m. Tickets are not required but donations are highly recommended because they go towards the children's education.

“The donation goes towards sponsoring these children through education because as a kid like me, it is the donation or that sponsorship that helped me for through college,” said Namayeengo.

Children in the choir range from eight to eleven years of age.

“So we are going to do Hymn songs and then we are going to do drums, local (Uganda Hymns) songs, and dances of course,” said Namayeengo.

Namayeengo says the non-profit host's auditions for every year in Uganda. After children are selected they will tour for nine months and become immersed in American culture. Music for life began in 1984 and have had fifty tours since it began.

“Throughout those years we’ve grown, more projects have been made such as our primary school in Uganda and our international secondary school is being built,” said Namayeengo.

The address for the concert is Life Gate Church, 831 Burlington Ave Logansport, IN.
