A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Themes include bringing people together, being positive, working hard, respecting each other, having a strong faith, and being committed.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Haddon and Williams are positive and helpful. Choir members come from all walks of life; some have strong personalities and big egos, and others have to work on being better leaders. All are committed. 

Violence

Nothing violent, but disagreements between members lead to some yelling and mild insults; all of this is frowned upon. Disturbing images including the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina are occasionally shown but in an informative context.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the Preachers of L.A. spin-off Fix My Choir has lots of positive themes as well as a strong focus on the characters' strong Christian faith. There are a few arguments thanks to some big egos and frustrating moments, and on specific occasions difficult situations (such as surviving Hurricane Katrina) are discussed. Kids may not be interested, but overall it's pretty family-friendly.

What's the story?

The unscripted series FIX MY CHOIR features gospel celeb and Preachers of L.A. star Deitrick Haddon and Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams as they travel across the country transforming choirs in hopes of transforming people's lives. From New Orleans to Hermosa Beach, California, they spend five days with choirs that are suffering from sour notes and a lack of harmony. While there, they work out vocal issues, interpersonal conflicts, and leadership problems. At the end of each visit, the choir they're mentoring gives a public concert demonstrating how they can come together and put on inspiring performances. It's not always easy, but the duo uses honesty and positive reinforcement to help each choir make music happen. 

Is it any good?

Haddon and Wiliams work with groups of singers that are well-intentioned and truly committed but have somehow lost their way as a team. They also help choirs find the confidence to be spiritually powerful and entertaining. 

Not surprisingly, there are a lot of references to God, Christianity, and prayer, either through song or during personal exchanges. But the messages about working together, honoring their craft, and using music as a constructive way of facing difficult challenges rise above any specific religious beliefs. The actual performances are often very good, too. It may not be for everyone, but those who tune in will enjoy lots of positive energy.
