Hope for Africa Choir Concert

Travis and I attended a very special event at our church tonight. I tried to get some pictures, but we were too far from the stage. It would have been difficult to capture with a camera anyway. These kids were amazing. And I think their stories made some sort of an impact on Travis. Although he was most amazed that he got to stay up way past his bedtime!

From our church website:

The Hope for Africa Children's Choir was an inspiration and a blessing for the almost 1000 people who enjoyed the Wednesday evening concert! First Church was privileged to host the first American concert for the Hope for Africa Children’s Choir. Much more than entertainers, these children, most of whom have been orphaned by AIDS, use the healing power of music and dance to carry a message of hope and harmony across the world.
