Plot Synopsis

VOICES OF FIRE is a half-hour docuseries that follows Pharrell Williams' hometown community as it builds a gospel choir. Pharrell's uncle, Bishop Ezekiel Williams, is a well-respected musical genius in the area, and his core team of influential gospel leaders venture out into Hampton Roads to find undiscovered talent. With the belief that diverse backstories can give their collective voice a greater meaning, the Bishop and his team search for people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. During day one of the auditions, the singers belt out their best before Bishop Williams and the gospel leaders. Then, tears fall as the praises go up on day two when the judges and guest Pharrell look for one-of-a-kind vocalists who can bring the energy and emotion. After a third round of sweet surprises, the judges select 25 sopranos, 25 altos and 25 tenors and then scour venues for the choir's debut performance. Choirmaster Patrick tests the finalists' abilities to harmonize during rehearsals as some are let go and others struggle to keep up. Days away from the group's debut, the final cuts are made. Finally, in front of a huge congregation in Norfolk, Virginia, the choir gives an astounding, uplifting performance before receiving major news from Pharrell. On Friday, November 20, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire six-episode first season of VOICES OF FIRE.
