Chicago Sun-Times | September 28, 2023

A 10-year-old girl mesmerized children and adults alike on the lakefront Thursday with her message of hope and larger-than-life personality. But this girl wasn’t made of flesh and bone. Little Amal, a 12-foot puppet representing a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl, made her first stop in Chicago at Navy Pier as she continues her walk across America to the West Coast. And finally, the puppet was embraced by over 70 members of the youth choir Uniting Voices as they performed their original song “We All Live Here.”
