Mwangaza Children’s Choir to perform March 3
Mwangaza Children’s Choir
The Cowboy Fellowship Church will host the Mwangaza Children’s Choir on Sunday, March 3, at 6 p.m. in the church, located at 561 F.M. 3350 in Jourdanton. The choir features 20 young children, ages 8-12, who represent the orphaned and poverty-stricken youth of Uganda. This group will share a special message of hope through traditional Ugandan songs and dances.
Mwangaza (pronounced m-wahn-GAH-zah) is the Swahili word for “shining light.” The brilliant faces and beautiful voices of the children provide an unforgettable experience for everyone. The choir members were selected based on musical talent, character, maturity, verbal skills, age, education, health, spiritual life, and parent approval. They were judged on drumming and dancing skills, composing skills, and their ability to learn new skills in a short time. The children began training for the U.S. tour in May 2012. They practiced and attended school for six months at the Maranatha Christian School located next to their community home in Uganda.
They began their U.S. tour in January. Ephesians 5:8 says, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.” Take your family and friends to this one-of-a kind Christian concert.
