I saw the African Children’s Choir for the first time on Sunday. They have sung with likes of Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys and Wyclef Jean.
It’s the story behind the music that is perhaps the most profound.
These children experience the world for one year through the choir tour and then are guided through an education system back home in Africa.
With a history now over 30 years long, the grads have gone on to change their countries and continent from within through the areas of human rights, medical, education, ministry and public service.
It’s a remarkable story of change.
One story I heard was about a young boy so moved by the paved roads and infrastructure noticed on the tour when he was just 7 or 8 years old, that be became an engineer and is now putting into place the infrastructure of a new Africa.
Music as a change management tool? I think so.
Wardell proudly supports the history and future of the African Children’s Choir.
It's a great example of positive change on a global scale.
