Synopsis
When slick-talking New York City advertising executive Darrin Hill travels back to his hometown of Monte Carlo, Georgia to claim the inheritence his aunt Sally left him, he finds he must fulfill her last wish before he can collect--create a gospel choir and lead it to success. But with a town full of tin ears and a shortage of singers, Darrin is about ready to give up and head back to the city where he belongs--until he runs into Lilly. A beautiful nightclub singer with a voice that could rock the competition at the annual Gospel Explosion, Lilly is just the miracle Darrin is looking for--if he can persuade her to sing.
