Octet Singer


Thalia believes a good money making scheme for Dobie would be to become a singer, as singers like Elvis Presley make lots of money. In comparison to someone like Milton, Dobie can't carry a tune, Milton who passes the school octet audition while Dobie is left off the singing group. With only one vacant spot, Dobie is still determined to impress Mr. Minafee enough so that he will change his mind. But what all Dobie's practicing accomplishes is getting his tonsils inflamed and swollen, leading to his tonsils being removed. But the resulting scar tissue in his throat also results in Dobie being able to sing like the best of the crooners, with Thalia now seeing dollar signs in Dobie's voice as opposed to Milton's. The questions become whether Dobie's newfound voice will last long enough for the octet to win the singing competition, and for him and Thalia to make their millions, or will his swelled head get in the way?.
