Sing was a real event
10 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Have a friend who lives in the Bronx and told me that his daughter had participated in Sing at her high school. As far as I know this is (or was) a real event there. I would love to see this one come out on DVD - Id be the first in line to buy it.

It is hard to find good stories like this one that has a basis in fact and refreshing to know that such events really occurred. I am certain that most of us would be surprised by the talent that can be found in our high schools as is depicted in this film. Music and music programs should be continually encouraged in our schools. It is well known that students who excel in music also excell in academics and that is most definitely a worthwhile cause.
