Black Nativity and its All Star Cast

Hey Guys look like we got another great movie on our hands. Tomorrow I’m headed back to Los Angeles to check out  the new holiday film Black Nativity! Super excited because our December Kontrol Girl cover models Luke James and Jacob Latimore are in the movie. 

The press junkets at FOX SEARCHLIGHT PICTURES’  are always really cool. While out in LA, I will get a chance to check out the film, then I will be able to have a round table discussion with actors Jennifer Hudson, Kontrol Girl Cover Model Jacob Latimore,  Tyrese, Mary J Bilge, Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Director Kasi Lemmons, Music Producer Raphael Saddiq and Producer Bishop T.D. Jakes!

I’m really excited to see Black Nativity and to meet Mary J. Blige. I have a feeling this movie is going to be everything and  I’m so glad that Fox Searchlight Pictures invited me out!  Check out the trailer below and let me know your thoughts

Unwilling to live by the imposing Reverend Cobbs’ rules, a frustrated Langston is determined to return home to his mother, Naima (Jennifer Hudson). Langston embarks on a surprising and inspirational journey and along with new friends, and a little divine intervention, he discovers the true meaning of faith, healing, and family. In theaters Thanksgiving, November 27th!
