Living on the streets of downtown LA’s Skid Row, Ronald Troy Collins gets through his days by singing to people. Feeling apathy or disdain, most people simply pass him by. Those who do stop to listen find themselves captivated by the depth of his prophetic voice, and by the songs he composes on the spot and directs at each listener’s soul. Some find themselves moved to tears, feeling an unnamable connection with Ronald that crosses racial and economical lines. They recognize that they need to hear his song as much as he needs to sing it to them. Delila Vallot’s Mighty Ground captures the auspicious moment when the people Ronald has sung into his life collectively support and pray for his transformation as the weight of an ingrained crack addiction threatens to drown his chances for redemption and recovery.
