down-on-his-luck NYC advertising exec who returns to his hometown in Georgia to

must fulfill his aunt's final wish - to create a local choir and lead then to win the annual
"Gospel Explosion" competition.
Darrin soon finds out that his hometown is full of colorful characters but short on talented singers.
Then he meets Lilly (Beyoncé Knowles), a beautiful jazz singer with a heavenly voice. Darrin sees Lilly as
the answer to his prayers...if he can convince her his intentions are good and persuade her to sing.
