Christmas Choir


Based on a true story, this story examines the life of Peter Andrews who is a workaholic accountant with no interest in the holidays. He has shut out everyone in his life, including his fiancé Jill who decides she can’t go through with the marriage. Peter soon finds his calling in helping the less fortunate when he meets a homeless man named Bob, who inspires Peter to start a choir at the homeless shelter. With the help of Sister Agatha and the men at the shelter, Peter turns his life around, making the choir’s success his main priority. Working with the homeless allows Peter to realize that everyone deserves a second chance at life, love and relationships.

Dove Review

This is a story about involvement, helping others, forgiveness and love. In today’s age, people get too busy in their own lives and they don’t take a look around them and see what is going on. Peter is described as a workaholic and has little time for his father or those close to him and has forgotten about his boyhood passion for music. One homeless man gives Peter a new look at his life and others. While Peter gets involved with helping these homeless men find new self worth, he also learns some discoveries about himself.

This is a heartwarming story for the holidays or anytime. Dove awards this movie the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for 12 and over.
