DULUTH, Minn. - There is no shortage of shine when the Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge choir starts singing.

The songs mean even more to the about 30 men in the choir, who seem to have found a new song. 

"The majority of the men are so gifted and talented, and that is hidden because they're just in addiction," Treatment Director Becky Revier said. 

The choir is one of the things MNTC is best known for because they travel to churches every Sunday with their white shirts and ties to share their stories. 

"The reason the choir is so successful is the guys are eager to get to these churches, to share their stories, to sing, to share hope for these folks," Executive Director Brandon Torgerson said. 

They are washed in grace and finding harmony with each other. 

"Research says that singing in a choir is excellent for mental health, for addiction," Revier said. "It gives people a sense of community."

WDIO and Hom Furniture want to say thank you for all that you've given throughout our Trees of Hope campaign.
