Mormon Tabernacle Choir give exclusive access to “Singing with Angels” movie

Salt Lake City (February 18, 2016) The world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir immediately recognized by their familiar sight and angelic sound are starring in the upcoming full length movie, Singing with Angels. Although the choir has been featured in documentaries and concert DVDs this is the first time they have participated in a story-driven movie. The full choir is shown in multiple scenes depicting rehearsals and performances. Several choir members fill important roles within the movie.

“This is epic,” said Brian Brough, the film’s director and producer. “Working with the choir has been amazing. We spent weeks reading through true stories that choir members sent us, evaluated each story, and found the ones that could be told on screen and would best fit the story we wanted to share.”

On March 11th, 2016, be among the first to see the production from Candlelight Media, Singing with Angels, on the Silver Screen. The film opens in Utah first and will then expand to other areas. Filmed on location at the Tabernacle on Temple Square and in conjunction with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the movie masterfully unites the true and inspiring stories of the choir with the fictional character of Aubrey.

Through a great collaboration between Candlelight Media, filmmakers, and the choir led by president Ron Jarrett, Singing with Angels is entertainment wrapped in the universal language of music from the iconic Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Along with beautifully woven storytelling and directing, “Singing with Angels is about the journey of one woman who dreams of joining the choir and finding strength through trials and challenges in life,” explains writer Brittany Wiscombe.

The film is much more than discovering what it is like to be in the choir, “Singing with Angels is a wonderful, inspirational movie. Good for the soul, and uplifting entertainment,” shared one viewer after a special pre-screening in Orlando, FL. For entertainment that can be shared and enjoyed by the whole family, don’t miss Singing with Angels, in theaters March 11.

Cameron & Julie's Review:

Going into this movie, we had very little idea of what to expect. We knew that it was about the experience of a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, but other than that, we did not have much more expectation.

We both left the movie very inspired and more than ready to recommend it to others. While her participation in the choir was what the movie is centered around, the real message of the story turned out to be how she deals with difficult life situations that many of us go through. We found ourselves laughing, crying, and ready to cheer at times.

It jumps back-and-forth in time and at the beginning of the movie if you're not prepared for that and miss the signals of what time they are in, it can be a little bit confusing. But when you know that you need to watch for that, it isn't any problem at all.

We would also recommend this for anyone that is familiar with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It's interesting to learn of the process that it takes to be a part of the choir and also to get a little insight of what they do.

In summary, this is a movie that will leave you feeling inspired by one who realized her dreams, had to overcome very difficult challenges, and kept an eternal perspective throughout the entire process.
