Children of the World performance brings more than culture

Joining voices from around the globe, the Children of the World choir will bring their program to the College View Seventh-day Adventist Church at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 19.

The 39-member group choir performs in smaller travel choirs around the globe. The singers represent millions of other orphaned or disadvantaged children affected by the AIDs pandemic. During their U.S. tour, the choir performs in venues such as local churches, radio and TV shows, and even the Brooklyn Tabernacle. The program includes songs, both in English and native languages, personal testimonies and a video showing the impact of the AIDs epidemic on children.

"They're cute, charming and energetic," said Janya Mekelburg, alumni activities director who saw the group perform in 2006 at Union College. "They're inspiring as well as fun."

Free parking is available in the lots of College View Seventh-day Adventist Church, located on the corner of South 48th Street and Prescott Avenue. For more information, contact Union College Campus Ministries at 402.486.2508 or visit
