Choir’s gospel gold to aid Indian orphans

Friday, February 3, 2012 - 12:03

MUSICGOLD-plated gospel songs was performed by the Medina Community Choir at Medina Theatre on Sunday.
The uplifting and inspirational sounds of gospel music featured much-loved classics including traditional hits such as Oh Happy Day and Go Down Moses as well as contemporary songs such as Bridge Over Troubled Water and a medley from the hit musical film, Sister Act.
Numbers were also performed by the Island Community Glee Club. Sunday’s concert was the choir’s first performance of the spring/summer season of 2012 and was staged to raise funds for a small charity based in India and founded by a team of IW doctors.
The charity, called Care for Destitute Children in India, aims to take orphaned children as young as four who are left on the streets with no hope and turn them into literate, productive citizens who are self-sustaining and feel valued, loved and cared for.
The orphanage started with four youngsters and now cares for, houses and educates 11 children and, with further financial support, hopes to increase the facilities and premises to care for 30.
During the past two years, the choir has raised nearly £5,000 for the charity.
