In the small town of Pacashau, Georgia, the church choir, fondly known as the Pacashau Sacred Divinity Choir, is struggling. Vi Rose Hill (Queen Latifah), the choir director, is determined to keep the traditional gospel music alive and win the upcoming National Joyful Noise Competition. However, G.G.
