Children
Children's group whipped at packed house into a delighted frenzy

One of the biggest venues in town was jammed to capacity on Friday night as the African Chidren's Choir sprung an electrifying show on an all-ages group.

The New Life Church had even supplied dozens of extra seats for the occasion – a beautiful demonstration of the love and energy present among the 18 dancers, their drummers and the folks steering the group from on memorable event to another.

The group offers children in places like Uganda, Nigeria and Rwanda a ticket to a bright future, one offering formal academic education and the priceless education gained by world travel.

Acceptance of the youngsters was (as our Canadian customs would suggest) polite but reserved at first, only to become boisterous bordering on wild as the evening went on.

Thank you to the African Childrens' Choir!
