African Children’s Choir to perform at Lovett

The Grammy-nominated African Children's Choir will perform at 6 p.m. Friday at The Lovett School in Atlanta.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be held at Alston Memorial Chapel on campus and will be followed by a screening of “Imba Means Sing,” a film directed by Danielle Bernstein, a 2002 graduate of Lovett. The film will be shown at 6:45 p.m. and Bernstein will take questions from the audience after the screening. A reception will be held at Lovett Galleria.

The African Children’s Choir is made up of children ages 7-10. Many of the children have lost one or both parents to war, famine and disease. They come from several different countries and demonstrate the potential of African children to be strong leaders, according to a Lovett press release.

"Imba Means Sing" is a film about Angel, Moses, and Nina, three children growing up in the slums of Uganda, unable to afford a basic education. The children have the opportunity to tour the world with the African Children's Choir, raising money to pay for college. Visit to learn more about the film.

The Lovett School is located at 4075 Paces Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta.
