CRESTVIEW — Davidson Middle School chorus members' annual spring concert will benefit drought-affected residents in Swaziland villages that have little water for drinking, cooking, hygiene or watering crops.
Supported by an effort begun several years ago by Crestview dentist Dr. Jennifer Wayer, World Vision, an international aid charity, has been constructing water pipelines serving remote Swaziland communities.
Davidson chorus members will lend their voices to the project Tuesday night with a concert called "Sing for Life!" at the Crestview High School Pearl Tyner Auditorium.
The concert promotes education in addition to entertainment, choral music director Keitha Bledsoe said.
"Our choral students are learning important lessons about giving, caring and doing what we can to help those here in our own community, and around the world, who are in need," she said.
Donations to the local World Vision effort are acceptable during the concert, Bledsoe said.

Davidson Middle School’s "Sing for Life!" concert, benefiting a World Vision water project in Swaziland, is 7 p.m. May 14 in Crestview High School’s Pearl Tyner Auditorium. Admission is free; donations for World Vision are acceptable.
