Carter has led the choir into the kingdom he dreamed of when he was their age. They have brought strength and purity of sound, words which resound trumpet-clear, songs which soar, moan, whisper and remind. These children are passing along what Marian Anderson called "prayers from one soul to another." And as Nathan Carter watches, his students sing what's in his heart.
