We Are The African Children’s Choir

The first African Children’s Choir toured in September of 1984.


We’re celebrating our 40th year! Stay tuned as we share more about how you can celebrate with us.


African Children’s Choir is a voice for the millions of suffering children who cannot speak for themselves.

Our mission is to help Africa’s most vulnerable children today, so they can help Africa tomorrow. The children in the Choir represent the potential of the thousands of children in Africa who are trapped in the cycle of poverty.

More Than Music


The program provides for the children’s well-being and quality education, utilizing the transformative power of music. We instill Christian principles through teaching and leading by example and bring relief and development to African nations in crisis.

All donations made to Music for Life are tax-deductible where allowed by law. Your generosity makes it possible for us to educate and empower each and every child that comes through our program.

About The Choir

The African Children’s Choir is composed of African children, aged 8 to 11 years old. The Choir is a program of a larger international organization called Music for Life, which provides thousands of impoverished children throughout Africa with the education, discipleship and leadership skills needed to rise above their conditions so they can bring positive, lasting change to their families, communities and countries.

Our Programs

Children sponsored through Music for Life are empowered to lead excellent lives. Over 95% of Choir members graduate from a university or trade school.

The African Children’s Choir Primary School is a thriving campus where all Choir children receive their primary education before and after the tour.

Our vision is to realize the promise of Africa’s youth by providing education and personal development based on a core set of Christian values.

Our Music for Life Outreach teams are made up of young adults who once traveled with the African Children’s Choir®.

The Music for Life Kindergarten program gives children from impoverished homes the chance to get a good start to their educational experience.
