Watoto children’s choir launches new album


Join the Watoto Children’s Choir, as they sing, dance, and share their stories of restoration and hope. Hope Church in Port Perry is hosting their concert, on May 3rd, at 7 p.m. Enjoy this free concert, featuring music from the new album, “Better Days-There Is Hope”.

In January 2024, Watoto, a Christ-centered ministry in Uganda, East Africa, released the Watoto Children’s Choir performing songs from their brand-new album, “Better Days-There Is Hope”. The six-month tour, travelling coast-to-coast across Canada, presents the story of orphaned and abandoned African children. These have received the love and care needed to help them rise above their circumstances, ready to make a difference in the world, as they become Africa’s future leaders.

Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled extensively since 1994, sharing a message of hope for Africa’s most vulnerable children and women. During that time, the choirs have travelled the world, met Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, and visited almost every major parliament worldwide. Yet, as remarkable as those moments have been, the choirs cherish the times they’ve met ordinary people, in their moment of pain, and have been able to see firsthand how Jesus heals.

Like Africa, the production is vibrant and colourful, taking you on an emotional journey as the children sing, dance, and share their personal stories of restoration and hope. As people see their smiles and are embraced by their hugs, the children have the privilege of telling people, “No matter what you’re going through, Jesus is our hope and there are better days ahead. Look at what He has done in my life.”

Other than going to Africa yourself, what better way to learn about all the good work Watoto is doing than through this heartwarming, musical performance.

The proceeds made from the album will help Watoto continue to provide vulnerable children with an education, medical care, a safe place to call home, and most of all the love of a family.

Watoto is a family made up of people from all over the world, who are working together to ensure the forgotten have a place to belong. In 1984, in a time of civil war, Watoto planted a local church in Kampala, Uganda, to speak hope and life to the nation.

Since then, Watoto has rescued thousands of orphaned and abandoned babies and children, placing them in loving families. They’ve equipped and empowered vulnerable women in their neighbourhoods, and sent over 100 children’s choirs across six continents.

As Watoto comes alongside the most vulnerable, it works to give each child and woman a chance at a better future, a future full of promise. Over the past four decades, the challenges facing Africa have changed, but Watoto’s vision remains the same. Watoto is committed to celebrating Christ and caring for community.

Hope Church is located at 14480 Old Simcoe Street, in Port Perry. For more information contact Hope Church by phone, at 905-985-9307, by email, at office@hope4portperry.com or visit their website, at hope4portperry.com.
