Choir of Hard Knocks: The Voice of Reclink

This inspirational documentary series from the ABC follows Australian tenor Jonathon Welch who is on a mission to give a voice to the disenfranchised. Each week homeless and disadvantaged people gather to sing with him in the Choir of Hard Knocks - and in just six months they will stage a show at the Melbourne Town Hall that will include a soul-felt rendition of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah'. A truly uplifting story of one man's dream to make a difference, and the people who sang some positive change into their lives.
