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.
