Traditional Zulu songs performed by children from the AGAPE orphanage in South Africa. This is the Children of Agape's 1st CD album and is available for Download only. The making of this album features in the HBO Documentary We Are Together.
Slindile is one of Africa's 12 million orphans. After losing both her parents she now lives in the AGAPE orphanage in South Africa. AGAPE is home to 25 children and offers them warmth, love and protection. In January 2005 the home was destroyed in an electrical fire and the children were homeless.
The children aged 7 to 16 years, all have wonderful voices. They were donated studio time to record this CD of traditional Zulu songs and help raise funds to rebuild their home and improve their lives. The CD has been described by Alicia Keys as "so beautiful and pure" and is Dan Zanes' "CD of the Year".
Fortunately the children's CD has been a massive success and they have built a brand new orphanage to live in. So now, all proceeds from this CD are funding education costs for the Agape children, which we believe is vital in order to give them a brighter future
The Agape children and the making of this album are featured in an award winning documentary film called "WE ARE TOGETHER (Thina Simunye)", The film is presented by RISE films and HBO DOCUMENTARY FILMS. To find out more visit www.wearetogether.org
