PLOT:

From Hallmark Channel:

The touching holiday tale... “The Christmas Choir” is inspired by the true story of a man volunteering at a homeless shelter who saw a way to help the men living there by creating a choir from their surprising musical talents. The group, which went on to record several albums and tour the world, experienced such success that the singers where able to gain the financial security and personal confidence to leave the streets forever.

The film stars Gedrick as successful-but-spiritually lost accountant Peter Brockman, whose life is turned on its head when he begins volunteering at a homeless shelter run by the caring-yet-cantankerous Sister Agatha (Perlman). Amazed at the musical prowess of some of the shelter’s occupants, Peter sets out to organize them into a choir, singing holiday tunes in a local subway station. Though the singers and Peter each go through their own difficult personal trials, they slowly begin to learn to trust in each other and the power their music holds.

Movie Review:

This heartwarming movie reminds you of the true meaning of Christmas and the true gift of giving yourself to others. It was so meaningful and realistic. A definite contrast to all of the Santa - North Pole Christmas Movies.

I loved the character, Peter Brockman, played by Jason Gedrick... he was flawed and imperfect - searching for answers himself, while the rest of the world saw him as accomplished and successful. Yet, it took helping others - to find joy in the true meaning of life and romance, too!



See or Skip:

See! I so enjoyed watching this one with my family... hope you will, too!

Plus, I have received many e-mails from viewers of this movie - who enjoyed it very much.
