Imagine a new Africa. Reborn, revived, rebuilt. The all-new production, Oh, What Love, by the Watoto Children’s Choir, presents the vitality of the new Africa. Its vibrance, urban sound and colour takes you on an emotional journey from utter despair to joyous celebration, as the children share their stories.
The production is indicative of emerging, modern Africa – a continent coming out of ruin and exploring it’s true identity. Africa is coming of age and so are her people. Her children and young adults are the key to the future.
Like Africa, the children in the new production are representative of many others who are beginning to understand their identity in Christ and what He has called them to be. They know that they belong to a family of believers.
Each of the children in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both of their parents. As part of a bigger Watoto family in Africa, they now live in Watoto village homes, provided with all that they need to grow up healthy and whole.
Underscored with the colourful, urban sounds and rhythms of Africa, the children present their stories of victory and new life as they demonstrate that God desires to be a loving father to all mankind.
The Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled since 1994 as Ambassadors of the millions of African children in need of hope. Their audiences come from all walks of life including the Queen of England, Presidents George Bush and Barrack Obama, the UK, Australian, Canadian and Scottish parliaments, and the greater public; warming many hearts wherever they go.
