Author: W M Gwillim – Google+

This November on USA Network sees the start of It Takes A Choir, a new singing based reality TV show but with a refreshing difference.

In a change to the usual music based television series around these days such as Idol and X Factor, this new show takes a look at how music can be used to bring people together and turn lives around.

As is common these days, the show is based on the format of an existing British program, in this case the BBC’s The Choir.

As with the UK version, It Takes A Choir will star Gareth Malone, an English choirmaster who’s charged with the task of turning a group of inexperienced and often reluctant singers into a polished and united choir.

Each episode will follow a particular groups journey as they rehearse and develop, often while fighting to overcome greater issues in their own lives. With Malone there to guide them, every show will culminate in the choir performing their chosen song to the public plus family and friends.

It Takes A Choir starts November 1, 2013 on USA Network.
