Gospel veteran Fred Hammond
The story is brought to life by a stellar cast including Hammond, who is supported by both veteran and fresh talent including renowned stage and film actors David Whitfield and Ann McCrary, a Bobby Jones Gospel staple, Toussaint Duchess (Lifetime Television's "The Fantasia Barrino Story and T.D. Jakes "Woman Thou Art Loosed") as well as three time Stellar award-winning artist, IROCC Williams. "Over ten years ago I envisioned capturing fresh stories for healthy family enjoyment. I am excited to begin a new venture that fulfills our mission that "The Gospel must be seen", says Hammond. "We purposely sought after fresh faces with incredible talent that we envision making an impact on modern urban storytelling."
Director Juan Roberts, best-known for his live events (Megafest) and motion picture projects (Woman Thou Art Loosed), shares, "This is the fulfillment of a long creative journey. It is only the beginning of presenting urban Christian culture with a transparency never seen before. Fred's script, while wildly comedic, has tender moments, powerful revelations and rich relationship textures that reveal how God is active in all of our lives… I am more than honored to be at the helm of the project as the facilitator of my friend's dream."
