ROANOKE COUNTY (WSLS 10) -  The Watoto Children's Choir traveling from Africa is stopping in the Roanoke Valley Tuesday.

Each of the children in the choir has lost their parents through war or disease. They live in Watoto Children's Villages.

By performing in the United States it gives the children exposure to other cultures and gives them confidence.

They've performed across the world at the White House, in Scotland and in England.

The choir's been in Virginia for the last couple weeks.

They sing at Cave Spring United Methodist Church at 7 p.m..
