I can't get my middle school chorus to sing!

I am having the hardest time getting my middle school chorus to sing. I have tried everything from bribing them with candy, giving them some free time at the end, singing popular songs they know, making a competition out of it, to threatening bad grades. Can anyone help me?
My class size is about 20 students mixed chorus. In a high poverty area.

Could you arrange field trips to good high school choral festivals so that they can experience what other people close to their age level are doing and learn what they are capable of? It might provide inspiration and a different set of role models.
