The Fort Bend Boys’ Choir performed in a Polish movie titled “The Hater” that premiered on March 6. The film featured one of the choir’s recorded songs.
Producers for the movie used the group’s “Ode to Joy” from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony in D minor, 4th movement that was on the local choir’s 10th CD release called “Heavenly Euphoria.” The movie version of the song can be found streaming online at fbbctx.org/fort-bend-boys-choir-in-a-movie/.
