Mighty Ground

Although he is a homeless addict who is struggling with mental health on skid row, Ronald Troy Collins is blessed with a remarkable hidden talent—his unforgettably soulful singing voice. He barely scrapes by via singing for strangers on the street, but his gift shines through to anyone who will only stop to listen. This documentary follows the unique journey of redeption for Ronald, who with the help of those touched by his skill (his so-called "board of directors") pulls himself off of the streets and onto the stage.
