First Presbyterian Church in Medina hosted the African Children’s Choir on March 27. The 16-member group from Uganda includes eight boys and eight girls between the ages of 7 and 10. The group performed for a packed crowd of 300 people at the church. They are two months into a year-long tour of the East Coast. The choir has raised money to support 52,000 children in seven African countries since 1984. While in Medina, the children and choir volunteers stayed with host families. The group performed popular children’s songs, traditional spirituals and rhythmic Gospel favorites including “Amazing Grace.”
