Hancock Church and Evening Worship @ The Well are proud to host the newly formed Butterfly Human Rights Choir during worship on November 16th. The 18-29 year old women’s choir will perform the 10-minute piece “Malala’s Song to the Taliban,” based on the story of Malala Yousafzai, a 17-year-old human rights activist. Malala was famously shot in the head by the Taliban after years of tireless advocacy for girls education in rural Pakistan. Refusing to live in fear, Malala recovered from her injuries and continued her good and faithful work.**

“Malala’s Song to the Taliban,” written by choir director Sandi Hammond, is a moving, musical tribute to Malala and a message of empowerment for young women everywhere. The piece will be the centerpiece of our worship service that evening, which itself will focus on issues related to girls education and women’s rights.

The director and choir will be available for a Q&A immediately following the worship service. All are invited to attend and ask questions. For more information on Evening Worship @ The Well, click here.

**Please note: Portions of “Malala’s Song to the Taliban” recounts her experience of being shot in the head by the Taliban while on her school bus. As the nature of Malala’s story may be difficult for children of a certain age, a children’s educational component will be offered outside of worship during the performance of the piece. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the church office.
