WATCH: African children raises the roof for Trinity College

THE atmosphere was electric inside the Gladstone Baptist Church today as Watoto Children's Choir forced Trinity College students out of their seats.

The Ugandan choir with 18 children and 10 adults sang, danced and praised the Lord.

Trinity college students, parents and teachers were brought up to the stage and taught how to do some dance moves.

Ten-year-old Jasmin Antoniou was one of the girls to have a go and apart from being nervous initially learnt the moves within minutes.

"I'm also a dancer and it was a good experience getting up and doing it with them," she said.

Trinity College principal said she was a bit overwhelmed by the performance. "For our students to see that coming from kids their own age was really encouraging for them," she said.

"You could see it in the parents too."

The show today was just a preview for the hour long free performance tonight 7 at Gladstone Baptist Church.

The choir moves on to Mackay tomorrow where it will be performing at Mackay Baptist Church.
