The Annual Children’s Choir Concert brings together different children’s choirs from a variety of churches and children, with the aim of the children praying for their parents, the nation and having Christian entertainment. This year on 21st September, the concert was hosted by The Little Messengers Choir together with H.E.A.R.T Stars Club Choir and SIFA Children’s Choir at the Garden City play area and, was powered by a wealth of companies like G-52 Inspirational, Splash SMS, Alpha FM, Chicken Express, Golden Grafix, Uganda Bookshop, Bunyonyi Safaris Limited and many others. At 2pm the event kicked off with an opening prayer, and a performance from the Little Messengers choir followed.
As the event rolled, on emotions began to accelerate as The Little Messengers Choir went head to head with SIFA Children’s Choir as they competed in a dance challenge. There was a colourful display of moves that left us to accept that the kids knew what they were doing. No matter what song Deejay Jhoshu(G-52 Inspirational) played they just kept dancing on.
While emotions were still high gospel artistes Nicole Esteem, Frizy and C4 took to the stage and performed their hit song Binchoma that kept the children singing along to the chorus “Binchoma, Binchoma, Bichoma…”. More performances followed with Holy Unit Abatukuvu performing their track It’s Your Time, Roy K and his hit jam Nindirira, which this kept the crowd in jump mode. The final performance came from Andrea with track Dance Off, at which the crowd really danced off.
Time check, 7pm. We had a closing prayer from the children who prayed for their parents and the nation, followed by final remarks from the event mastermind, Mike Presson.
This was a fun event and we were amazed at how the children were boldly doing all the activities for Jesus as the book of Matthew 18:3 states “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven”(NIV). This is a highlight to all Christians that they should be humble and bold like children in order to attain the kingdom of heaven. This event was the first of its kind and we can’t wait for the next one!
