African Children's Choir - On "American Idol" and coming to Northern California this week

I’ve never watched “American Idol” on television, but I’m going to watch it this week because the African Children’s Choir will be singing. Described as American Idol Gives Back, there will be a two-night special to benefit children and young people in need in American and Africa. The show airs Tuesday, April 24 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) and the expanded results show airs Wednesday, April 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

Even better than seeing the African Children’s Choir on TV is the opportunity to see them live in Santa Rosa, California, on April 27. Tickets are still available at, or you can buy them at the door.

I’ll be at the concert. After the concert, several of us who volunteer for Heifer International will greet the children as they arrive at Cloverleaf Ranch, where they will spend the night.
