Every Wednesday is karaoke night at a storefront church in Skid Row. The stars of the evening come from the neighborhood's hotels, shelters and sidewalks. Performances are ragged, raw and often inspired. On some nights you won't find a more electric room in Los Angeles, and the crowd bears witness to a brand of musical epiphany seldom seen at a cutting-edge Echo Park club or the stage of the Hollywood Bowl.
