'I never used to believe in miracles,' says one admirer. 'But now I know they happen.' All the Merry Makers have intellectual or physical disabilities - sometimes both - and face huge challenges in their lives, yet to see them dance is one of the most uplifting celebrations of the resilience of the human spirit and the power of music. With a record-breaking three appearances on 60 MINUtES and their documentary tHE MUSIC IN ME winning awards around the world and enjoying ratings success when shown on ABC tV's ENOUGH ROPE, the Merry Makers are now about to conquer the USA. this is their story.

Marcia Hines 'I cried - not because of sadness, but because of happiness ... immensely touching.' John Laws 'It was amazing, so beautiful. It's such a lot of fun.' todd McKenney 'It's like a wave washing over you, all that warmth ... extraordinary!' Julia Morris.
