Pearl of Africa Choir

Last night was a special night for our choir, not only was it the first Christmas concert of the season, with a mixture of our normal repertoire and Christmas music, but we shared the stage with a very special group of young people.

It was the second time that The Kidderminster Valentines have sung with The Pearl of Africa Children’s choir from Uganda. All the children in the choir are being cared for by the Molly and Paul Child Care Foundation, who sponsor 7 schools and homes, providing education, food, shelter and health care to orphaned and destitute children in the Kampala and Massaka Districts of Uganda.

The choir regularly tour the UK to raise much needed funds for their schools and homes and perform a unique mix of traditional African music, dance and drumming. Last night they performed for us with great energy and an infectious joy that touched the hearts of everyone in the audience.
