I Dare You Not To Shout While Watching “Voices of Fire” [[Exclusive Interview]]

When Pharrell Williams was asked to put together a choir in his hometown of Hampton Roads, VA by his uncle and a well-respected musical genius, Bishop Ezekiel Williams… I don’t think either of them or his team would think this would be life changing for so many.

I talked to Patrick Riddick, choir director for Voices of Fire, about how he got involved with the huge project, the process of choosing voices from such diverse backgrounds, and what this Netflix series will do for those who already love gospel music and those just discovering its healing power.

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, a 20 Year ‘Journey’ for David E. Talbert [[Exclusive Interview]]

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is David E. Talbert’s first movie musical ever, but his background as a playwright, producer and director prepared him for what will soon be a Christmas classic for families everywhere.

I asked David how different was it to do a movie musical compared to other movies he’s done and how it compared to his playwright background? We also chatted about the heavy hitters in Jingle Jangle including Forest Whitaker, Phylicia Rashad and Detroit’s own Keegan-Michael Key and why this movie… 20-years in the making… was so important for him to release.

A whimsical movie about believing in you even when all seems lost, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is filled with lots of twists and turns along with lots of black girl magic too.

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is now streaming on Netflix. Find out what my favorite scene is in the movie and more about David E. Talbert’s “journey” to making this new Christmas Classic here:
