Expanding horizons: "Our group, Tour 46, will be in the States for about seven months. After that we go to the UK: England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. They'll be on tour for a total of 11 months. These kids all come from very humble backgrounds in Uganda so it's an eye-opening experience for them. They see the possibilities and opportunities of life."
Born to perform: "The concerts are so much fun. The kids have so much energy and so much joy. They're dancing, drumming and singing. They love to perform so people who come leave so blessed."
Back to school: "After the tour is done, the kids go back to Uganda where they focus on their education. It's a boarding school where they go from elementary all the way through university. While they're there, all of their clothing, medical expenses, food, room and housing is provided by the African Children's Choir."
Paying it forward: "When we were in Uganda we met thousands of young adults who were on tour when they were kids and are now doctors, teachers, lawyers and other professions. They're able to help make their home a better place for themselves, their families and for their community."
