Seasonal Special Happenings

Watoto Children's Choir

When: Fri., Jan. 7 2011

Founded in 1994, Watoto (Swahili for children) has established itself as a holistic social-service program for Ugandan children affected by HIV, AIDS, and war. Its ministries are far-reaching, but most visible among them are the Children's Choirs: traveling performance troupes that have performed internationally at venues ranging from Buckingham Palace to the Minnesota zoo. Tonight you can catch these globe-trotting ambassadors at the Liberation United Church of Christ in Lakewood, as part of the church's World AIDS Day 2011 events. The choir — 22 children and 10 adults — will perform a lively mix of African rhythms and contemporary gospel music in an effort to raise awareness of war, poverty, and AIDS. Admission is free, though a free-will offering will be accepted. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Liberation United Church of Christ is at 13714 Madison Ave. in Lakewood.
