This Friday, Joyful Noise will echo throughout theaters nationwide. The happy, hearty, sweet story about a small-town church choir looks to be a feel-good family film. We've thrown together a compilation of clips from the movie that celebrates its whimsy, wonder and testament to the power of music.
After the longtime leader of the church choir passes away, G.G. Sparrow (Dolly Parton) assumes that she is a shoe-in for the position of his replacement. Apparently, however, the church has other plans in the form of Vi Rose Hill (Queen Latifah).
If there's one thing you apparently do not do, it's sneak in secret choir rehearsals behind Vi Rose’s back. Vi Rose denies the application of her daughter Olivia's friend Randy, whom she doesn't much care for.
Apparently, Randy ain't so bad after all: he manages to connect to Walter (Dexter Darden), a young man with Asperger's Syndrome, through the power of music: specifically, the song "Walk Away Renee."
Romance is brewing between Olivia and Randy…unfortunately, Olivia’s mother would not be too glad to hear about this.
If there’s one thing Happy Feet taught us, it’s that singing and dancing can coexist perfectly. The below scene shows G.G. envisioning her and Bernard Sparrow (Kris Kristofferson) enjoying a dreamy, moonlit dance.
You can’t expect a movie called Joyful Noise to NOT have at least one heartwarming mother-daughter moment. When Vy finally accepts that her daughter is growing up, the tears begin flowing.
