IPA Charities to Sponsor Soul Children of Chicago Choir Members

The International Profit Associates charitable foundation sponsors children to attend a music festival in Israel.

Buffalo Grove, IL, July 25, 2007 --(PR.com)-- IPA Charities, the charitable foundation of International Profit Associates, has recently donated $4,600 to Walt Whitman’s Soul Children of Chicago.

IPA Charities has fully sponsored two of the nine children selected to attend a trip to Israel for the Zimriya Music Festival atop Mount Scopus in Jerusalem to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ in song to the nations. The 21st Zimriya Music Festival will be held July 30-August 9.

“This is an awesome opportunity for Soul Children to make an impact on the nations,” said Walt Whitman, president of Soul Children of Chicago. “This sends out a positive message that we can be significant, on a global level, as African American youth. We teach them to make a mark in life that cannot be erased--they have purpose and destiny and it’s up to them to walk in it. I’m very excited about the relationship that we’re developing with International Profit Associates. It’s my desire to see every child in Soul Children develop an entrepreneur spirit, become an asset to any corporate climate and be independently wealthy.”

Soul Children of Chicago is a world class performance group with the purpose to utilize music as the motivator and catalyst to inspire young people throughout the world to have faith in themselves. To this day, The Soul Children of Chicago continue to serve the community as a non-denominational, non-profit educational organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of our youth. The Soul Children of Chicago look to educate the minds, elevate the spirits and illuminate the souls of our youth. Whitman and The Soul Children of Chicago are dedicated to encourage our youth and provide hope and inspiration in a world filled with challenges and despair.

Since 1952, the Zimriya has taken place every three years. Choirs from all over the world are invited to participate, including youth choirs. Workshops, led by world renown conductors, take place mornings and afternoons. During the evenings, choir members participate in open singing and choir to choir sessions. A Gala Concert will take place at the end of the Zimriya as well as a guided tour of Jerusalem. During the weekend, choirs will tour the country and give public concerts at various locations in Israel.
