DALLAS (KRLD RADIO) – The Dallas Street Choir has launched its first music video, called “Homeless, Not Voiceless: The Climb.”

Choir music director and founder Jonathan Palant says the pop tune, which was originally recorded by Miley Cyrus, takes on new resonance and meaning in the voices of people who have been living on the streets of Dallas.

“It’s been a cool thing to look at songs through a new lens, seen thorough the eyes of homelessness and the extremeley disadvantaged,” he said.

Members of the choir are hoping the video goes viral and gets a million views or “likes.”

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
