What happens when you abandon your roots to follow your dreams? Is it ever possible to leave the past behind? Those questions are addressed this fall with the release of The Gospel, a film that follows a young man's attempt to purge himself of his past, but who is ultimately forced to confront it even more deeply than he ever could have imagined.
An R&B star reaches the pinnacle of fame when tragedy strikes and his pastor father falls ill. Forced to return home from the road and witness the flagging congregation and his childhood nemesis crafting a new direction for the once thriving church, he deals with the tug of familial loyalty vs. career ambitions that offer him the chance to either find salvation or self-destruct.
Shot on location in Atlanta, this Columbia TriStar Motion Picture premieres this September. The Gospel features an all-star cast, including Idris Elba (The Wire), Nona Gaye (Crash), Tamyra Gray (American Idol), Keshia Knight Pulliam (The Cosby Show), and Boris Kodjoe (Brown Sugar). Among other stars of the small and silver screens, this film also features Yolanda Adams, Delores "Mom" Winans, Martha Munizzi, and Fred Hammond (who also serves as co-executive producer) in special cameo appearances as themselves. As if that wasn't enough, it includes the first full-length film roles for gospel music stars Hezekiah Walker and Donnie McClurkin ("The Fighting Temptations").
The Gospel is the first soundtrack ever released by Verity Records and has a standout roster of huge gospel music stars with production, composition, and performing credits. The Gospel includes contributions from Fred Hammond, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Martha Munizzi, just to name a few!
