The choir was formed in order to bring the RUSH members together as a community. Due to the stigma facing people living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya, many people do not feel completely accepted by society. The choir provides people with a community where they can feel safe, wanted, and accepted. Also the choir provides members with something to look forward to. For many of those suffering with HIV/AIDS, life is a constant battle without many rewards, and the uncertainty of health leaves them with a sense of insecurity. The choir at least gives members something to focus on in their lives.
For two consecutive years the choir has participated in the Kenya Music and Culture Festival and has been very successful, both times winning at district and provincial level, and progressing to national finals in Nairobi. They are now regularly invited to perform for various occasions around the local area and sometimes further afield.
