The All God's Children Community Choir is a multiracial, multicultural group of talented and enthusiastic children and teens, ages 4 to 18, from ten different communities in Southwest Michigan. Led by a multi-ethnic team of directors, the Choir is now in its eleventh year, inspiring audiences with its message of brotherhood and sisterhood, unity, friendship, peace and respect for all people.

Since the Choir's initial performance at Benton Harbor's Race Relations Council Awards Program in 2001, All God's Children has performed on more than 90 occasions. These special events have included performances at Lake Michigan College and Andrews University to commemorate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; a special Habitat for Humanity performance for former President Jimmy Carter; concerts in Grand Rapids and Traverse City for state and national teachers' conferences; joint appearances with the Chicago Children's Choir in Michigan and Chicago; a Holiday Traditions concert with the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra and Metropolitan Opera Star Angela Brown; and performances with renowned professional musicians Tom Chapin, Josh White, Jr., Gemini, LaRon Williams, Nikki Harris, and Pamela Chappell (with whom All God's Children recorded an award-winning CD).
Choir rehearsals are held two or more times each month, at a variety of locations throughout Southwest Michigan (churches, a synagogue, public libraries, community centers, a children's museum, a local art center). Each rehearsal is followed by a shared meal, often prepared and served by volunteer teams of choir parents and grandparents.
Vocal training for All God's Children is provided by Paul Mow, nationally renowned tenor and voice teacher at the Citadel Dance and Music Center. The Choir and the Center are collaborating to provide selected choir members with scholarships for individual voice lessons at the Citadel.
The All God's Children Community Choir is led by Co-Founders and Coordinators Sandy and Larry Feldman and Directors Hursel Cole, Stephanie Ng, and Corey Hampton.
