VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 22, 2009) - The internationally acclaimed African Children's Choir invites you to celebrate our 25th Anniversary at a special Gala in Vancouver, BC!

During the evening the Choir will also present the prestigious Malaika Award - meaning 'Angel' in Swahili - to singer, songwriter, actor, and political activist, Bob Geldof for his dedicated and extraordinary commitment to the people of Africa.
