Josephine Lee, Chicago Children's Choir Promote Peace

July 1, 2008

The choir was recently the first group of non-Korean civilians to perform on the observation platform of the DMZ in South Korea, singing songs of peace as well as Korean folk songs. The choir often tours internationally, even performing in post-Apartheid South Africa in the 1990s.

Check out the video above of the choir singing at the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, AL.
