Last night I had the absolute privilege to see a performance by the African Children’s Choir.
They performed at my daughter’s school as part of the school’s programme of events to celebrate 50 years.
I had a slight inkling about what to expect after seeing the choir sing as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations but I wasn’t prepared for a such an evening of goose bumps as they sang, danced and drummed their way through traditional African music as well as English songs, including the Gary Barlow penned, ‘Sing’ which they performed alongside our own school choir.
I left knowing a lot more about the history of the choir and the work the foundation does based on the ethos of empowering children by providing with them with an education.

It was a wonderful evening. One I was glad not to have missed.
Love, Lucie x
