This serviceable musical contraption takes place in a hard-hit Georgia town, where the multiracial members of the Divinity Church Choir take their act to the competition stage. Vi (Queen Latifah) takes over the choir, and the direction of her standout daughter (Keke Palmer), whom the rebellious grandson (Jeremy Jordan) of the widow G.G. (Dolly Parton) really likes. The movie’s all right, if you can take its rampant artificiality. The cast is adequate in dealing with adequate material, at best, but the noise is more dutiful than joyous.
