   PRESS RELEASE:


   Children's Choir Moves Nation, World, with
   Performance at Earthquake-ruined Church
   Wed, 23 Oct 2013, 16:53:13 EDT


   TAGBILARAN CITY, Philippines, Oct. 23, 2013 (SEND2PRESS
   NEWSWIRE) -- The World Mind Network today announced that
   The Loboc Children's Choir provided a spontaneous moment of
   inspiration and hope to the quake-ravaged Philippines on
   Thursday, with an impromptu performance of Josh Groban's
   "The Prayer."

   According to Sarah Mendel of Friends Beyond Borders, an NGO
   helping with quake aid, the group approached the ABS-CBN
   news team as it was reporting in front of the ruined Loboc
   Church, inside of which the choral group had performed many
   times.

   The church, built by the Spanish in 1602, has survived hundreds
   of earthquakes, but was completely destroyed by the October 17
   7.2 magnitude temblor.

   The quake killed at least 198, injured hundreds, and severely damaged more than 19,000 structures.

   As a result of their heroic act, the Choir has won the Adelina Award, the most prestigious Humanitarian honor offered in the
   Philippines.

   The Loboc Children's Choir has been in existence since 1980, and consists of 30 school children from the Loboc Central
   Elementary School in Loboc, Bohol, Philippines. The children are between nine and thirteen years of age.

   A scale model of what the rebuilt church might look like, which honors the original architecture but incorporates modern design
   elements to help prevent future earthquake damage, will be circulated among schools in the region to assist with fundraising
   and recovery efforts. The new church will be rededicated to the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Loboc.

   The choir's performance can be seen here: (CBN TV News website) http://goo.gl/fpFOsn .
