As part of its U.S. tour, World Help is presenting Children of the World International Children's Choir. The choir, comprised of orphaned and disadvantaged children from several countries, will be performing at Nashville Church of Christ on Oct. 25 at 7 p.m.

The children have performed in such venues as Focus on the Family, Brooklyn Tabernacle, Crystal Cathedral and Disney World.
