JONESBORO -- The African Children's Choir will visit Arkansas State University at 7 p.m. Jan. 11 for a concert in Fowler Center Riceland Hall, 201 Olympic Drive, Jonesboro.

This is the second of a three-part subseries on Africa included as part of the 2019-20 Lecture-Concert Series. Admission is free.

Since its founding in 1984, the choir has released numerous recordings, performed with Mariah Carey and has been featured on The Tonight Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and American Idol.

"Their program promotes the beauty, dignity and unlimited ability of African children around the world, being a voice for the millions of suffering children who cannot speak for themselves," a spokesman for the series stated. "The program provides for the children's well-being and quality education, utilizing the transformative power of music."
