The Matsiko World Orphan Choir comprises of vulnerable
and at-risk childen from Liberia, West Africa.

They are some of the world’s poorest and most neglected children.

And yet, they are some of the happiest and most talented children you will ever meet.

Their unique voices offers them an opportunity: a 12-month tour of America.

But only 24 children can be selected for this once-in-a-lifetime, life-changing experience.

They want to become the generation to end the cycle of poverty, where the selected 24 will try to get educational sponsorships for 1,000 of their friends and families back home.

You will laugh, cry, sing and dance, as we see the world through their eyes.

"The Greatest Ambassador for our world's
600 million orphaned and at-risk children"

This film follows the choir's eventful journey in Liberia, as they prepare for a trip to the USA.

As part of their preparations, the film follows the choir:

  • Meeting Nobel Peace Prize winner, Leymah Gbowee
  • Singing for Liberia’s President Weah
  • Being interviewed by the BBC
  • Recording an Album with one of Liberia’s top producers
  • Singing for survivors of sexual abuse

…and so much more!

All this is mixed in with the choir’s unique voices, performing traditional songs and new compositions made specifically for the choir.

"It's hard not to smile when seeing the beaming faces...
it is awesome that the kids did all the camerawork"
