The African Children’s Choir Founder Shares His Remarkable Life Story in New Autobiography “Don’t Tell Me It Can’t Be Done”

Ray Barnett, who overcame incredible obstacles in his own life before launching the world-renowned African Children’s Choir back in 1984, is on a mission to inspire the next generation of Christian pioneers through his autobiography ‘Don’t Tell Me It Can’t Be Done.’

The book tells the heart-breaking story of how as a young boy he struggled to find his way through immense poverty, family secrecy, learning difficulties and war-time suffering that gripped his life in Northern Ireland.

But it was his dramatic conversion as a young teenager that turned his life around:

“When I became a Christian at the age of 13, I was inspired by the ministry of David Livingstone. But the first time I attempted to preach I fainted.  The next day I read in the Bible that with God nothing is impossible. So, I never let anything stop me for pursuing my dream to help others because I always believed God could do anything.  I want to encourage people through this book that with prayer and action they can accomplish anything in their life.”

The book begins in a very tense moment in Ray’s life in 1987 when he was meeting with a notorious leader of Hezbollah while seeking to negotiate the release of hostages in Lebanon.
