The Watoto Children’s Choir, consisting of 16 orphans from Uganda, will continue its six-month U.S. tour in the Arizona area November 30 through December 29, 2019 featuring a brand new concert, We Will Go!

The Watoto Children’s Choir has performed before presidents and royalty in the White House, Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant in the United Kingdom, the United Nations, and on Chris Tomlin’s album, “Hello, Love.”

Since 1994, Watoto Children’s Choirs have traveled the world, shining a light on the plight of Africa’s orphaned children.  Each year, the choirs advocate for millions of African children currently orphaned by AIDS, poverty, and war. The experience of traveling on a choir helps the children to develop confidence and boldness, as well as broadening their worldview. The choirs are part of the leadership training program of Watoto Child Care Ministries, which currently cares for more than 3,000 children living in family settings rather than an institution. 

Along with energetic singing and dancing, the children will share inspiring stories of how their lives have been changed and how they have been called into a life of purpose to transform their communities.  The show is an expression of joy from children who have been rescued after losing one or both parents to live in one of three Watoto villages.  Their stories are journeys from despair to hope and from fear to faith.

“I am excited to be a part of We Will Go,” said Esther Kahangi, who was abandoned at a hospital and rescued by Watoto as a premature baby and spent her first weeks in critical care. “I know that I am a wonder because I am chosen by God as His child.”

The upcoming schedule of the Watoto Children’s Choir in Arizona includes performances from November 30 through December 29, at locations throughout the Valley. For a complete choir tour schedule, visit https://www.watoto.com/app/choir/calendar.
