We have heard enough of self-proclaimed divas and crooners but let’s, for the first time, also crown an artiste of our own.
And we say, Watoto Children’s Choir is the highest-flying music outfit from Uganda…
Well, that swell you’re feeling in your throat isn’t breakfast that didn’t digest properly, but a lump of envy – we know most artistes thrive on beef but trust us, nobody can handle the Watoto children.
The Choir has been invited to China and they will perform at the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics 2008 at the Beijing National Stadium on August 24. The singing-children will fly the Uganda flag when they hit the stage in the morning hours of August 8 before the sportsmen take over.
A source told us that Watoto have also been slated to perform at the closing ceremony of the Olympics scheduled for August 24.
This concert will be added to their CV that also includes performances for Mr Nelson Mandela, Queen Elizabeth II, President Bush, American Idols and the UN.
