Gospel recording artist Deitrick Haddon and former Destiny’s Child member, Michelle Williams, are saving choirs nationwide.
Oxygen Media has taken on a new music series, Fix My Choir starring the duo; it premieres November 5.
“A great choir has the potential to inspire communities and uplift people everywhere,” Rod Aissa, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development for Oxygen Media said. “Viewers will witness Deitrick and Michelle breathe new life into choirs that have lost their way in Fix My Choir, culminating with unforgettable performances that will bring the house down.”
The network issued a descriptive statement introducing the show:
“In each episode, Deitrick and Michelle travel to a different hometown to surprise a struggling gospel choir, community choir or other vocal group to help them find perfect harmony — not only in their music, but with each other. Together with an intervention and makeover, the choirs will ultimately have a chance for redemption. Over the course of a week, the mentors dive deep into the members’ lives to tackle the choir’s core issues —such as leadership, interpersonal conflicts, artistic direction, and doing whatever it takes to get these choirs back on track with a big sound and newfound confidence. Deitrick and Michelle will take these choirs to the next level of singing, collaboration, and presentation, all in an effort to make the ordinary extraordinary.”
“The choir represents family, unity and teamwork,” Haddon said. “It’s an honor to be a part of introducing the choir culture to the world with Fix My Choir.”
Cities visited by Haddon and Williams on Fix My Choir include New Orleans, LA; Los Angeles, CA; Hermosa Beach, CA; San Francisco, CA; New York, NY; Santa Barbara, CA; and Pasadena, CA.
