Watch: Exclusive 'Imba Means Sing' Clip Reveals the Ups and Downs of Daily African Life


In this exclusive clip from “Imba Means Sing,” Nina explains her everyday life in Uganda, sharing how she is hired by other people in the town to do their household chores. Nina’s story is just one among many in the documentary, which follows the children who were selected to be in the African Children’s Choir; they are flown to the U.S., Canada and the U.K. to perform and share their talents. They are performing to raise the money that will fund their educations through college.

The official film synopsis reads: “‘Imba Means Sing’ is an intimate character portrait told through the perspective of eight-year-old Moses, the choir’s star drummer. Growing up in the slums of Kampala, Uganda, Moses and his family lack enough resources for him to even attend the first grade and know all too well that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure his future and change the course of his family’s life. Armed with his youthful resilience and infectious smile, the film follows his journey from poverty towards his dream of becoming a pilot as he works for an education and spreads the magic of his African childhood.”

“Imba Means Sing” will be released digitally worldwide December 4 and 100% of the filmmaker profits will be donated to help educate more kids in Africa through the African Children’s Choir. Watch the exclusive clip above.
