The students were engaged from the minute the show started to the minute it ended. The message throughout the show was very positive and inspiring. The performers were professional and encouraging. Our school could not be happier with the Amazing Africa performance.Teacher, Southside Occupational High School
...Our school LOVED "Amazing Africa!" They talked about it for days and were very affected by the messages about character. They've asked when "Amazing Africa!" will be back.Music Teacher, St. Sylvester School, Chicago IL
