Destiny Africa Children's Choir performed at all four EG public elementary schools courtesy of COA (Cultural Organization of the Arts). The video attached here is from their performance at Eldredge. EG's United Methodist Church is hosting a a final performance Sunday at 6:30 p.m.
After each school performance, students were invited to ask the performers questions.
They asked what the sticks were that the performers used during one of the songs – garden hoes, to represent the chores they do at home.
They asked if people in Africa like music. Yes. When the choir began. 2005. And, why the name "Destiny Africa."
One of the adults answered that question, who explained that the vision was to make sure these kids have a future, so the name was meant to carry then from brokenness to courage, so they can reach their destiny.That's because the children are from the Kampala Children’s Centre (KCC) in Uganda, an orphanage that rescues children from war-torn areas, streets and orphaned situations to offer them love, education, a family environment and nurtures them to become agents of transformation.
Destiny Africa's first visit to EG inspired singer-restaurateur Dana Wronski to visit them in Uganda last January – read about her visit here. She also spoke about her experience at The Living Room – you'll find a video of that performance here.
The performance Sunday is free, but a donations for KCC will be accepted.
