Singer-actor-phenom Hilary Duff stars in this heart-warming story about Terri Fletcher, a girl from a small Arizona town who dreams of attending a much sought-after summer music program in Los Angeles.

Raise Your Voice Strikes a Chord

When a personal tragedy shakes Terri's world, she throws out her acceptance letter to the LA music school and decides to stay home. Luckily, her mom finds the letter and convinces Terri that she should go for it, despite her dad's insistence she should stay at home and help run the family restaurant. Terri's mom and aunt Nina come up with a sneaky plan and put Terri on a train bound for LA.

Raise Your Voice - Singing Style

Upon her arrival in the big city, Terri struggles to fit in and find her voice. Mean girl, Robyn, gives her a hard time and her roommate, Denise, doesn't want to spend time getting to know her. However, things start going better for Terri when her music teacher helps build her confidence and gives her a solo in the choir. The story would not be complete without Jay (played by hottie, Oliver James), a cute musician with an English accent and funky style who sparks Terri's interest. Together, Terri and Jay work hard to write a song that they eventually perform together at the final concert.

Raise Your Voice - DVD Features

Get even more Hilary Duff with the Raise Your Voice DVD features. There are deleted scenes, bloopers and a fun behind-the-scenes featurette. You can also catch Hilary's video for her hit single, Fly. The coolest feature on the DVD though is the Interactive Music Jam where you get the opportunity to create your own songs and have them critiqued by a professor - just like Hilary in the movie!

Raise Your Voice - Soundtrack

The movie features Fly, the first single from Hilary's new album, as well as the song Jericho and Someone's Watching Over Me, which Terri and Jay perform at the end of the movie.

Raise Your Voice - The Bottom Line

Raise Your Voice touches on real themes that we can all relate to - the pursuit of dreams, first love, loss of loved ones and relationships with family. With the whole "going-to-sing-in-LA" storyline, this movie kinda feels like Crossroads - but it's much better. Hilary really shows off her acting skills and even gets [kwlink]a few tears[/kwlink] from the audience - bring your Kleenex! The supporting cast is pretty talented and delivers lots of funny and emotional moments.
