R&B singer Mya had a chance to celebrate her role in the new film âLove For Saleâ this weekend at the annual American Black Film Festival with co-stars Melyssa Ford, Jason Weaver and Jackie Long. âLove For Sale,â a romantic comedy about Trey (Jackie Long), a twenty-something delivery guy that canât seem to catch a break was premiered at the festival which was heavily attended by Hollywoodâs top African American talent. According to the ABFF, Treyâs whole life is in shamblesâ¦no money for college, girls donât know he exists and his uncleâs recording studio is about to be foreclosed. After a failed attempt to talk to the girl of his dreams, Kiel (Mya), Trey encounters the incredibly, beautiful Katherine (Melyssa Ford) while on delivery. The older woman falls for him despite their age difference. This seemingly perfect development soon proves to just complicate Treyâs life even further. The festival, which opened on Friday also featured a Lincoln-sponsored âOff the Red Carpetâ program highlighting the cast of Tyler Perryâs upcoming film âThe Family That Preys.â Sanaa Lathan, Taraji P. Henson and Rockmond Dunbar the filmâs producer Roger Bobb.
