‘The Homeless Chorus Speaks’ documentary screening March 28

Steph Johnson, Co-founder and Executive Director of Voices of Our City joined Good Morning San Diego to talk about “The Homeless Chorus Speaks” documentary which will be screening March 28 at the San Diego Central Library.

Synopsis:
The Homeless Chorus Speaks

Homeless people are like you and me. Life is tough on the streets, but hope has come in the form of a homeless chorus.

In Susan Polis Schutz’s interviews with fourteen members of Voices of Our City Choir, they tell their stories; from women who have been abused and used, to those battling addiction, to people who just can’t afford housing, to people who need medical care. They talk about their backgrounds, why they are homeless, the inhumanity of homelessness, their hopes and dreams, and what each think the solutions to the homeless problem might be.

While singing inspirational songs such as “Over the Rainbow,” their voices soar, and the harsh realities of the street evaporate if only for an hour. Together, in their shared voices, they find joy and family. And from their music comes the power to change lives.
