More Choir of Hard Knocks June 12, 2007Posted by Amanda in Australia, Media, Television.
I have just cried my way through the last episode of Choir of Hard Knocks.
Alan gave his speech so eloquently and confidence oozed out of Simon. He was almost unrecognisable.
Thank you Jonathon Welch, you have done an incredible thing. The transformation in the lives of the people in the choir is important, but I hope everyone who watched this fantastic documentary will look at the marginalised people they pass in the street differently. Maybe they will give them a smile instead of avoiding them. Maybe they will buy a copy of the Big Issue. Maybe they will stop for a chat and discover something in common.
Let’s pray that a little bit of hope and understanding has been injected into the Australian psyche.
