ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– The world-renowned Watoto Children`s Choir from Africa is performing in the St. Louis area this week. Choir members are orphans. Their parents have been lost to AIDS, poverty or violence. The choir is part of a Christian ministry and is performing at several area churches.
Tuesday`s performance was at the St. Louis Dream Center in north St. Louis. The choir uses traditional African song and dance to bring awareness to the plight of African children. The performances are also an opportunity for the choir to profess their faith.
“While we share the love of Jesus with people, we encourage them even if you are in a desolate situation, God can still turn it around for good,” said Phillip Mugerwa, team leader.
