My voice? Yeah, well, I used to drink a lot of beer when I was a kid and I sounded like a drunk in a choir. I don’t drink anymore. Eric Burdon

This is a fun family movie about the Vienna Boys Choir – more so if the family loves beautiful music.

The plot focuses on two boys.  One is a working-class lad with great talent who is just starting out.  The other is a star singer whose voice is beginning to change and must deal with the new guy getting all his best solos.

My mother took us to see this in the theater and I remember it to this day.  The story is cute but it is the music that sells it now. I hope mom is hearing the angels sing it in heaven.
