The African Children’s Choir gave an energetic performance at Bethel Baptist Church on Friday evening. The choir is on a tour of North America to perform and raise money for various projects in Africa including schools and orphanages. The choir is made up of 24 children from Uganda, aged eight to 11. Each child has lost one or both parents to poverty or disease.
