A soulful song that deals with a serious issue, In Africa speaks of all the perils. The children go hungry, are sick, live in horrible poverty. Mother’s hearts break watching their children perish. No joy, no play is had by these children. It is something they do not know about. War, violence, genocide, death, the children see it all. The world sees it too. There is outrage, but just as the children of Africa die so does the world’s outrage. The passion and need to help just dies.
