The show concerns the themes of love, religion and acceptance. Gideon, an ex-gospel singer turned pop star, has scheduled a final recording session. He invites his old band to join him including profession back-up singer, Tryshia; failed rock singer turned Mary Kay Cosmetics salesperson, Vicki; studio engineer, Jim; and Texas gospel singer, Buddy. Buddy has idolized Gideon his entire lifetime and has come to Los Angeles to meet him and to follow in his footsteps to cross over from gospel to pop. He is devastated when, during the course of the session, he learns Gideon is both gay and has AIDS.
