There is Hope

“I believe the most beautiful child of struggle is art.”
– Paul Williams, Composer, Lyricist, Producer

The long, hard road of struggle and trial briefly touches on the roots of our weekend performers, New Directions Veterans Choir. The choir is compromised of inspiring stories of hope and determination.  Each choir member carries his and her own personal saga of triumph. But as a whole, the group shares the common foundation of music and hope.

George Hill, choir founder and director, was homeless for 12 years, living in and around MacArthur Park. The power of music and the New Directions program united Hill with similar struggling veterans. This group eventually grew into a soulful cappella choir, New Directions Veterans Choir. The Choir is comprised primarily of men and women who have served proudly in the United States Military. Following their service to our country, they became homeless. New Directions gave them hope and direction.

The choir got their “big break” on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” and since then has been featured on the NBC Nightly News and E! Entertainment Television. They have performed at over 100 venues and events. In doing so, they continue to spread their message of hope and redemption to other vets who struggle today.

Join us on Friday, January 18 at 8 pm as we witness the power of music, hope and inspiration at the New Directions Veterans Choir performance. Purchase tickets here.

  1. May I simply just say what a relief to uncover a person that truly understands what they’re talking about over the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people really need to look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you are not more popular since you surely have the gift.
