In just hours "Black Nativity," the anticipated big screen event featuring Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, Jacob Latimore, Tyrese Gibson and Luke James, will arrive in theaters.
Sitting down with The Breakfast Club recently, three of the stars discussed the music heavy project and why we should all go out and support it in theaters.
"I'm so happy and so grateful to just be part of an a-list cast. It's awesome," Jacob Latimore told The Breakfast Club. "Just to be a part of a Holiday musical is something I never imagined doing when I started out doing music. It feels good."
Weighing in Tyrese said "Black Nativity is based on a play from the famous poet out of Harlem, Langston Hughes. Even though it's called Black Nativity, it's not just for Black people. It's for everybody. So it's an all inclusive type of thing. It's a Holiday family movie about forgiveness, love… a bunch of family secrets are revealed. We're singing a lot of the stuff that we feel in this movie. It's not forced. It's not animated."
