The Young Africans are a gifted group of singers, musicians and dancers who were all once a part of the world-renowned African Children’s Choir.

Now 20-22 years old and more talented than ever, they are poised to fulfill their promise and make a difference in their communities back home.

Concerts are free and open to all. A free-will offering is taken at the performance to support programs such as education, care and relief and development programs.

Music for Life (The parent organization for The African Children's Choir) works in seven African countries such as, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. MFL has educated over 52,000 children and impacted the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history. MFL purpose is to help create new leadership for tomorrow's Africa, by focusing on education.

Throughout the performance the Young Africans share various cultural elements from their countries of Kenya and Uganda with a Stomp inspired dance as well as highlighting unique African instruments. Audiences will be inspired and moved as the transformation of once vulnerable children to mature and educated adults unfolds.

We are proud to announce that the Young Africans will be bringing their uplifting show Our African Dream to South Carolina in January.

Join us as we celebrate the achievements and talents of these remarkable young adults, who, in the face of adversity, have risen to become the future ChangeMakers of Africa.
