Watoto Children’s Choir's new Christmas album is a vibrant celebration of the birth of Jesus!
Watoto are a world-famous children’s choir. Over the decades they’ve performed for Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, the US President at the White House, as well as touring Australia and performing for former Prime Minister John Howard in Canberra.
Though the COVID-19 pandemic has prevented the children’s choir from touring, it hasn’t dampened their creative spirits or their love of singing. So Watoto Australia is releasing three songs from a special Christmas album to the Christian media sector: Angels, Joy to the World and Go Tell it on the Mountain.
These inspirational Christmas tracks are a free gift to you, with love from Watoto, to say thank you, and to celebrate this special time of year together – across the world! All we ask is that you introduce the song from Watoto Australia, and the Watoto Children’s Choir, as we celebrate Christmas with you.

Though new to his role as Watoto Country Director, Tim is well known in Christian media circles for his own career as a radio host. Tim has a deep passion and sensitivity for those who struggle to help themselves. He grew up in Fiji and has dedicated himself to serving the vulnerable in Israel and Palestine, Afghanistan and Mexico, as well as working in multiple children’s ministry roles in his native
“This Christmas album is a celebration of music, of the Watoto children and their God-inspired talent and resilience,” says Tim. “The past two years have been incredibly challenging for the children and for the whole world. So that makes it even more important to celebrate Christmas together! Despite a pandemic and the distance between us, we can be united in our love for Jesus and the celebration of His birth.”
