A woman returns to her high school as a teacher and convinces the school punk to become involved in the schools annual production "sing". When the board of education decides to close the school and refuses to allow the annual event to be held, the neighborhood and students come together to put the event on one last time. A cross between "Fame" and "Footloose". Written by

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.
