The African Children’s Choir

Ray Barnett, founder of the African Children’s Choir, was travelling through the war-torn country and stopped to give a ride. The child began to sing. Ray was captivated and his colleague quickly started to record the child’s song.
In 1984, Ray was galvanised into action by a radio report about thousands of children, starving and orphaned by civil war in Uganda. Ray thought of a choir of African children that would radiate beauty and joy. Almost 20 years later, the African Children’s Choir is still made up of talented African Children between the ages of seven and 11, who act as ambassadors for thousands of other children and who go on tour internationally.
They were guest artists at the Commonwealth Conference of Education Ministers inEdinburgh, 2003.
