A group of Young African singers and musicians will be performing on Sunday, Jan. 19, at Friendship Baptist Church in Sherwood. The church is located at 10150 Brockington Road in Sherwood.

The Young Africans are a gifted group of singers, musicians and dancers who were all once a part of the world-renowned African Children’s Choir.

Now 20-22 years old, they are poised to fulfill their promise and make a difference in their communities back home.

Concerts are free and open to all. A free-will offering is taken at the performance to support programs such as education, care and relief and development programs.

Music for Life (The parent organization for The African Children’s Choir) works in seven African countries: Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. MFL has educated over 52,000 children and impacted the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history. MFL’s purpose is to help create new leadership for tomorrow’s Africa by focusing on education.

Throughout the performance the Young Africans share various cultural elements from their countries of Kenya and Uganda with a Stomp-inspired dance and unique African instruments.

Audiences will be inspired and moved as the transformation of once vulnerable children to mature and educated adults unfolds.

The Young Africans will bring their uplifting show Our African Dream to Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, Ohio and Ontario.
