The Watoto Children’s choir, set to travel to USA and Brazil, performed live this morning (13 March) on NTV Uganda’s morning show. It was an exciting opportunity for the children as they experienced live TV for the first time.
In a colourful and vibrant display, the children shared the message of Christ and their life stories through music and dance to millions of viewers across the country.
Alfred Ocen, one of the children on the choir shared the impact Watoto has had on his life.
“After the death of my mother, I was taken in by my grandfather who could not provide enough. Many times we had nothing to eat and we would have to beg on the streets but all this changed when I joined Watoto,” says 12 year old Alfred.
The choir led by Duncan and Alex kyaterekera will be presenting songs from the new Watoto album ‘Oh What Love’, which was released on iTunes last week.
