Watoto, a holistic care program, initiated to serve the dire needs of the people of Africa presents a brand new choir tour, “Beautiful Africa: A New Generation.”
The production will be 7 p.m. Feb. 18 at Crossroads Bible Church, 97 East Road in Los Alamos.
The tour began in Dallas and will tour for six months visiting several cities throughout the U.S. including Albuquerque, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, Mo., Milwaukee, Wis., Minneapolis, Minn., and Des Moines, Iowa, concluding the tour in Denver.
With original African music; dance routines; life-transforming stories, the tour is indicative of the new generation of leaders emerging out of Watoto.
“Through the choir’s Concert of Hope, we share a message of transformation by telling the story of Africa’s rescued orphans and women. We hope to reach out to audiences with the message of Christ’s healing power,” said Gary Skinner, Watoto Founder.
With its appeal, accompanied by music and dance — a fusion of contemporary gospel and traditional African rhythm — the globally acclaimed Watoto Children’s Choir has traveled internationally since 1994 as ambassadors for the millions of children in Africa, orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, war and poverty.
