Top singing teacher Jonathon Welch has returned from a successful international singing career to his native Victoria, inspired by an idea he came across in Canada. Jonathon wants to take a group of homeless or disadvantaged people off the streets of Melbourne and into his new choir. After an intensive recruiting process, the choir assembles. They may not sound great at the beginning but Jonathon is sure he can mould the raw talent into a singing force to be proud of. First challenge is to busk in front of Flinders Street station to raise money for a session in a recording studio. They need to raise $600, an enormous amount for a group that has never sung in public before. Will they be able to put on a good enough show to get the money?
