This choir, comprised of orphaned and disadvantaged children from several different countries, will be performing at First Baptist Church of Springfield on Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Their high-energy and inspiring program will feature several songs, in both English and native dialects, as well as stirring personal testimonies.
