In a collaboration that will make Mormon Tabernacle Choir history, the Choir has announced that they will join Candlelight Media in the production of a new feature film, “Singing with Angels.”

The inspirational film and the Choir’s first full-length narrative feature will be produced this fall by Silver Peak Productions and distributed by Candlelight Media Group. Brittany Wiscombe, known for “Changing Hearts,” “Nowhere Safe” and “Christmas Angel,” will write the screen-play, while Brian Brough, director of “16 Stones” (coming to theaters in October), “Nowhere Safe” and “Scents and Sensibility,” will direct the film.

“Singing with Angels,” set for a 2015 theatrical release, will tell a heart-warming and inspirational story of one woman’s journey to join the Choir.

“The Choir is delighted to be collaborating on this film with Candlelight Media,” said Ron Jarrett, president of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. “The story of the film will be an affirmation that the Choir’s music can bring peace and hope and transform lives.”

The film will be shot in Utah, including on location at Temple Square and in the Tabernacle. Auditions for roles in the film will be held soon, and anyone interested in doing so may visit CandlelightMedia.com or contact Casting@CandlelightMedia.com.

The Choir has been featured in TV movies and episodes such as “Mr. Krueger’s Christmas” and “Touched by an Angel,” and is the subject of documentaries “One Voice” and “America’s Choir.”
