The long awaited day with Chris Tomlin finally arrived!!
The Watoto bus rolled in at the Gibson Amphitheater next to Universal Studios in Los Angeles. This building seats 6000 people at one go and the the tickets for that evening where totally sold out. The children were really excited.

Isreal Houghton spiced up the evening as the curtain raiser before Chris Tomlin came on stage. The atmosphere of worship was so great as the songs were sang and the testimonies given by Isreal and Chris.
Then Chris got into talking about how he had met the Watoto Children’s Choir last year. He then he invited the chior to come on stage amidst cheers from the crowd.
As the song “Love” was sang, people could not hold back their emotions as tears rolled down their faces. No words can explain the moment of worship that the kids experienced as they sang the song.
When the song ended there was a thunderous applause from the congregation as the children walked off the stage.
But Chris wasn’t done with the choir. He requested that the children sing the song “sing” with Him at the end of the concert in free style.
There was one problem with that. These children know the language of very free style. Fortunatly that is exactly what Chris wanted and that is exactly what they gave him.One of the guitarists, Jesse had to move a little to the side as the children danced around and sang with so much joy on their faces. By the time Jesse had the chance to get his position back, the concert had come to an end :-) .
“I wonder what it will all be like in heaven.”
Chris Tomlin ,Isreal Houghton and the Watoto Childrens Choir gave the audience a peek into heavenly worship.
Will you be there to experience what God has prepared for those that love him?
A place of love joy and peace with his presence forever.
