Atlanta Homeward Choir, composed of homeless men, sings at the White House

On NBC News tonight, Kristi Nelson reported on a homeless men’s chorus that was formed in a shelter run by a church in Atlanta, that is the Central Night Shelter.

The best link is from an Atlanta NBC affiliate here. (An earlier video embed on NBC seems to have been accidentally overlaid.)

CNN has a similar story by Deena Zaru and Alex Lee with Video.

The group will perform at the White House this week.  The brief excerpt on NBC included “Alleluia” and the spiritual “Go Tell It on the Mountain”.

The founder of the choir Donal Noonan (Director of Music Ministry at the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception) spoke about helping the men this way as a moral necessity.

The group is called the The Atlanta Homeward Choir and has this Facebook page.
