— The African Children's Choir will perform at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 4, at Goshen Christian Reformed Church, 2440 NY-17A, Goshen.

The concert is being hosted by Calvary Chapel of Orange County.

The African Children's Choir melts the hearts of audiences with their charming smiles, beautiful voices, and lively African songs and dances. The program features well-loved children's songs, traditional spirituals, and Gospel favorites.

Concerts are free and open to all. A free-will offering is taken at the performance to support African Children's Choir programs, such as education, care and relief and development programs.

Music for Life, the parent organization for The African Children's Choir, works in seven African countries, including Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. Music for Life has educated over 52,000 children and impacted the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history. Its purpose is to help create new leadership for tomorrow's Africa, by focusing on education.

The African Children's Choir has had the privilege to perform before presidents, heads of state and most recently the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II, for her diamond jubilee. The Choir has also had the honor of singing alongside artists such as Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Michael W. Smith, and other inspirational performers.
