A Very Special Reunion on 'The Choir' (VIDEO)

'The Choir' (Wed., 10PM ET on BBC America) is a series covering the lives of a group of young adults. The kids are invited to join a school choir -- despite never having had the chance or opportunity to sing before.

On the current episode of the series, choir leader Gareth Malone reconnects with his students after a long absence, and gets to learn about how they are doing now. The kids seem to have been changed by their year-long experience in the singing group. "It was tough, hard, fun, sad," said one pupil. " ... If you just blow out different emotions that pop into your head -- probably every single one happened at some point, to someone in that choir."

During the reunion special, the students sing 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' by Simon and Garfunkel. These are some of the lyrics: "When you're weary/ Feeling small/ When tears are in your eyes /I will dry them all." It's a good message, and a message of friendship -- and also words that are entirely appropriate, considering the theme of the show.
