Destiny Africa performs at Brookline Community Church
Brookline Community Church hosted a performance by the Destiny Africa Children’s Choir on Saturday, June 27.
The choir is made up of children from the Kampala Children’s Centre in Uganda, which provides a loving home and an education to children who have been affected by poverty, disease and the legacy of war.
Destiny Africa has performed at the United Nations and for the British prime minister, among other dignitaries, as well as at numerous schools, churches and other venues. This marks the fourth time the choir has performed in Brookline.
The program included praise and worship songs in English and Ugandan languages, traditional African dances, drumming and pantomime. The children also introduced themselves, sharing their aspirations for the future, and video clips provided more information about KCC and the children it has rescued.
The evening concluded with "Mwana na Nzambe," an interactive song in which the audience danced and sang along with the performers.
Nearly $1,000 was raised for KCC at this event, and the church hopes to host Destiny Africa again during their next U.S. tour.
