Congratulations to our dear friend Chris Tomlin on winning a Grammy last weekend, in the category of 'Best Contemporary Christian Music Album' for his phenomenal song, “And If Our God is For Us” .
Chris was rapturous at receiving the award and described the moment as, “an unbelievable dream”. He thanked God, his family, band and friends for supporting him all the way to that moment.
Chris Tomlin is a good friend and partner of Watoto, who has been fundamental in creating a platform for the Watoto Children’s Choirs who travel around as ambassadors for Africa’s orphans. He has performed with Watoto Children's Choir on several occasions and his song "And If Our God is For Us" was one of the most moving acts during Watoto's Restore Tour: Child Soldier No More.
His support has been requisite in creating greater awareness of Watoto globally. We commend you, Chris Tomlin for this well deserved accolade.
