Summary

Berryman, a "wisecracking, professionally trained Director of Music over the course of a year as he works tirelessly to revitalize his church's deteriorating choral program so that the entire breadth of African American sacred music can be sung. Because Messiah Baptist Church of Bridgeport, Connecticut is replete with animated and opinionated congregants and a new, charismatic minister, the film provides an entertaining but honest portrait of the life of a contemporary church musicians, while exploring the timeless topics of sacred repertoire, music education, religious calling, and personal and situational change"--Back cover.
