The Matsiko World Orphan Choir performed to a packed house at Spring Hills Middletown Assisted Living on Wednesday, May 25, 2016. Made up of some of the poorest orphaned and at-risk children in Peru, India and Liberia, the Matsiko World Orphan Choir children’s contagious energy and zeal shone through their powerful presentation of original songs, cultural dances, and multimedia testimony. The residents at Spring Hills Middletown truly felt the passion with which the children sang; they all had a great time.
Here is a short video from their performance:
The flagship vehicle of International Children’s Network, the Matsiko World Orphan Choir brings children the hope of a brighter future. Orphaned & vulnerable children are auditioned annually and selected from a pool of hundreds of children before leaving their home nations to travel out of their countries for the first time in their lives. some of these kids, ages five to 16 years old, have never experienced electricity or worn shoes. They sing and dance and share their stories for a very worthy goal: to raise hope, awareness and educational sponsorship for the world’s 600 million at-risk children. Because of this sponsorship, orphaned and at-risk children have a chance to break the cycle of poverty, taking better control of their futures. In addition to churches, civic groups, assisted living communities, universities and other public/private schools around the country, the Matsiko World Orphan Choir has performed at noteworthy places such as Google, Disneyland and SeaWorld, entertaining crowds of thousands at the Los Angeles Clippers, Seattle Seahawks, and even the Rose Bowl games. The Choir has shared their talents via personal presentations with U.S. local and national politicians and graced the platforms of corporate giants such as Microsoft and Kraft Foods.
