How Sweet the SoundBook - 2014
Shar Gracey loves to sing the Lord's praises, so she jumps at the chance to join a traveling choir led by the father of black gospel music, Thomas A. Dorsey, and earn money for her ailing mother's medical care. On tour she falls under the tutelage of gospel great Mahalia Jackson -- and falls for the handsome but not-so-great Nicoli James. When Nicoli shatters her faith and dreams, Shar loses her voice and has no place to run except back home.
