The Asante Children’s Choir from East Africa will be performing a free concert at Grace Baptist Church on Nov. 25.

The Asante Children’s Choir will be performing at Grace Baptist Church this month.

This free concert (no tickets or reservations required) will be followed by an opportunity to sponsor a child in need or make a donation to the choir. There will also be merchandise for sale afterwards.

“Asante” is a Swahili word translated “Thank You” in English. The Asante Children’s Choir is made up of children from East Africa, a region recovering from years of civil war and genocide that have claimed millions of lives leaving thousands of children and women as orphans and widows. The choir is dedicated to spreading love, hope and joy while raising awareness for the desperate plight of orphans and other vulnerable children. Their colorful clothing, pounding drums and sweet voices demonstrate their hope and dream for a brighter future. Their inspirational stories of resilience have instilled hope in the hearts of all those who have seen them perform. The children who have been rescued from some of life’s most difficult circumstances take pride in expressing gratitude through their music.

The concert on Nov. 25 at 6:30 p.m. is intended for the whole family and people of all ages will enjoy in the multicultural experience.
