Last night I shared a joyous journey from Mombasa. The Upendo Children Arts Club, consisting of 14 girls from 7 to 14 years old had just received an award for the best cover song of the year (East Africa) at the Injili (Gospel) Music Awards.
Lemic receiving the award
They performed their Giriama language version of a Nigerian popular song of thanksgiving ‘Nara’ in the large city centre church to an exuberant crowd of over 300 people. On the way stuck in a traffic jam after dark with the windows open, the girls continued to sing prayers of blessing for their fellow travellers.
