Radio Houstoned: African Children’s Choir on a Journey of Hope
Angelina Jolie can’t save all the orphans in Africa, can she? Thankfully, the orphans of the African Children’s Choir are saving themselves. The choir, started 23 years ago, takes orphaned or abandoned African children with amazing musical talent on a worldwide tour to raise awareness of the plight of Africa’s youngest citizens, including children from Darfur, Sudan, Chad and Kenya. You can see them perform today at 8 p.m. Wortham Center, 500 Texas Avenue. For information, call 713-227-2787 or visit www.houstonballet.org. $17 to $47. — Francisca Ortega
