Choir for Ugandan orphans wows 1,300 concert-goers at Hextable church
A CHOIR for Ugandan orphans wowed more than 1,300 concert-goers at a Hextable church.
The Watoto Children's Choir takes in youngsters who have lost parents to AIDs or war and performed three concerts at St Peter’s church at the weekend.
As well as singing the 18-strong group of children and adults danced and told audiences about their experiences and how the choir is helping them to overcome their demons.
Watoto not only gives members a chance to perform but helps house and educate them as well.
They gave a concert on Friday evening and two on Saturday.
Trainee vicar Adam Price said: "It was quite a show with music, dance, worship and testimony.
"It was a just a great time to get the community together and hear about what these children have been through and how the choir is making a real difference to their lives."
