African children's choir tours Louisiana with inspirational performance.

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - An inspirational message of overcoming tragedy comes from the very children who experience it, and they are sharing that message with Louisiana.

The Watoto Children's Choir traveled all the way from Africa to share their stories to a packed Bethany World Prayer Center. Each child in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both parents. They live in Watoto villages where they get the care they need to grow up as productive citizens of their own country.

Different choirs have been traveling the globe since 1994. This choir is scheduled to perform in Lafayette, Winnsboro, Broussard, and other areas in Louisiana. To preview a performance, visit  For more information and schedules in the US, you can visit
