NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Cheri Keaggy will partnerwith Lifesong for Orphans for Celebrate Life, a series of benefit concerts featuring Keaggy and the Zambia Children's Choir. Proceeds from the concerts, which kick off April 26 in Houston, will be used to care for orphans and their needs.
"Honestly, I'm humbled to be partnering with Lifesong for Orphans this Spring," says Keaggy. "I go out and minister and certainly God uses it in a big way, but these folks are the true heroes of the faith, looking after orphans in their distress as Scripture commands."
Keaggy, who will perform songs from her current CD, So I Can Tell, as well as earlier hits from her career, will be joined onstage by the Zambia Children's Choir. The six children from Lifesong's school in Kitwe, Zambia, will sing traditional Zambian songs and will join Keaggy for several songs.

Keaggy's association with Lifesong for Orphans began several years ago when the non-profit used her song, "What Matters Most," for a promotional video. After attending a concert last year in Nashville, Keaggy was approached about joining the tour this year.
"This is an important work, an eternal work," says Keaggy. "I'm excited to see the great things God is going to do in our midst."
