Local actor to perform with kids from Africa

Twenty-two African children will perform at the Kallang Theatre today for the With Love, We Are Here 2014: Africa ACC 10th Anniversary Concert.

They will be performing African cultural song and dance, the Chinese art of mask-changing, Chinese martial arts and popular Xinyao songs.

Singaporean actor and singer Nick Shen, who also volunteers at the African Children Care Centre (ACC), will be the host and co-performer during the concert.

He told The New Paper: "The kids are truly inspiring and I'm very touched by their persistence. I hope to go to Swaziland in December to visit the children and to help out at the centre.

"Despite having a difficult past, all of them are selfless and wish to contribute back to society in the future."

Tickets for the concert are sold out.
