About the Watoto
Since 1994, the Watoto Children’s Choirs have toured the world annually as advocates for the 18 million African children currently orphaned by AIDS. Each child in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both of their parents but they have been rescued and now live in a Watoto village. Watoto is a holistic child-care solution initiated to serve the dire needs of the people of Africa.
The experience of travelling on a choir helps the children to develop confidence and boldness, as well as broadening their worldview. The choirs have performed before presidents and royalty in the White House, Buckingham Palace, the United Nations and many other national parliaments. The choir has also performed at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant in the UK and is featured on Chris Tomlin’s album, “Hello, Love.”
The concert will feature worship songs that share the stories of the children and the joy that they have because of God’s love. The children will share stories of how their lives have been changed and how they have been called into a life of purpose to transform their communities. All performances are free and open to the public.
Abandoned at a hospital in Kampala, Esther Kahangi was rescued by Watoto as a premature baby and spent her first weeks in critical care. Now, she is a healthy, joyful 8-year-old who has toured with the choir.
“I am excited to be a part of Signs & Wonders,” said Esther. “I know that I am a wonder because I am chosen by God as His child.”
This will be the second time the Watoto Children’s Choir will be Hosted by Greater Community Missionary Baptist Church. said Pastor Chatman, we wanted to end the year with a bang since we are celebrating our church’s’ 75th Anniversary, our church was founded with a mission on Missionary work, we are a missionary church and Missionary is our first name. We encourage everyone one to RSVP early because these kids put on a show that is out of this world. Come and be a blessing to them as they will be a blessing to you
