Nutty: How did you like the Watoto concert at church today Buddy?
Buddy: Wow, those kids rocked! Did you see me? I was dancing on my haunches!
Nutty: Agreed! I couldn’t keep still either and I am usually stoic.
Buddy: What does stoic mean?
Nutty: Well, I consider myself stiff like a robot, not able to let loose and just thrash around to the beat of the music. But with the Wototos, I couldn’t keep my body from moving all over the place, with the rhythm of their music.
Buddy: True dat! What is the story of these Wototo Children’s Choir kids?
Nutty: They live in Uganda Africa and are orphans. These children have lost one or both parents to aids or to war. The choir has toured Asia, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Israel, The Netherlands, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States and many other countries. Their performances are a blend of native African rhythms, contemporary gospel music and creative dance.
Buddy: I loved their energy and how excited they were to sing about Jesus. Their eyes were shut a lot like they were so in love with Him, they were overcome with emotion. I get that way when we go to the lake.
Nutty: If you saved up any of your allowance, think about donating to them. They appreciate it. Ok, time to go to the lake.
