Young @ Heart
Written by Holly on Tuesday January 12, 2010
Okay, yeah, "American Idol" kicks off tonight... But trust me when I say OETA has something much, much better.
Tonight at 8pm, INDEPENDENT LENS "Young @ Heart" will take you to Northampton, Mass to meet the members of a choir who are rehearsing for an upcoming hometown performance. What's so interesting about these choir members?.... Their average age is 81.
What's even more interesting?... They perform songs by James Brown, The Clash and Prince.
The "Young @ Heart" group has toured Europe and sang for royalty, but this performance is different because it's in their hometown. The documentary focuses on the members as they learn new songs while dealing with several real, heartbreaking events.
If you're still on the edge as to whether you'll tune in tonight, watch this...
