Four Ugandan MPs are getting ready for an eye-opening experience at the US National Prayer Breakfast where the Watoto Children’s Choir last performed in 2009.
The MPs are from rural, impoverished and under-developed regions of Uganda, some devastated by civil strife.
The Watoto Children’s Choirs have on several occasions presented the cause for Africa’s orphaned and vulnerable children at the US National Prayer Breakfast and other White House functions at the invitation of current President Barrack Obama and former President George Bush.
Two choirs are currently on the road in the US, touring the states of Arizona and Texas with the exciting new choir production, Beautiful Africa: A New Generation. A third choir is in Canada, while three more choirs depart for the UK, Asia and Australia later in January, February and April 2012 respectively.
