Big Kenny Alphin of Big & Rich will be honored as the second U.S. recipient of the African Children’s Choir Malaika Award in recognition of his work in the Sudan. The African Children’s Choir will present the award to Big Kenny during its 4th Annual Benefit Gala in New York City on December 3. He will perform with the choir that morning on CBS This Morning at 7a|6c.

The Malaika Award is presented to individuals for outstanding work on behalf of Africa’s most vulnerable children. To date, five individuals have been presented with The Malaika Award including Rt. Hon Gordon Brown MP, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, President George Bush and most recently to Sir Bob Geldorf.

The African Children’s Choir is comprised of children from the poorest countries of the world who have lost one or both parents to poverty or disease. Since its beginning in 1984 over 52,000 children have been educated through the Choir’s programs and over 100,000 people  have been helped through their relief and development programs.
