Music for Life (MFL) – the parent organization for the choir — works in seven African countries. These are Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa.

MFL has educated more than 52,000 children and impacted the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history.

MFL’s purpose is to help create new leadership for tomorrow’s Africa by focusing on education.

The African Children’s Choir has performed before presidents, heads of state and the Queen of England.

The choir has sung alongside artists such as Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Michael W. Smith, and others.

Most recently, the African Children’s Choir recorded some tracks with Sarah Hickman for a CD titled Love Is a Journey.

They also have a small role in the movie Pan, starring Hugh Jackman.
