We’ve been enjoying a variety of movies in celebration of Black History Month on DVR. This is one of our favorites – for the music, the message and the acting. In very few films do you get to see full length unedited performances including Gospel great Marvin Winans, superstars Gladys Night and Mary J Blige and amazing vocalist Cheryl Pepsii Riley.
After Madea (Tyler Perry) catches some children looting her home, she turns them over to their Aunt April (Taraji P. Henson), a nightclub singer who wants nothing to do with her late sister's kids. But things begin to change when a handyman (Adam Rodriguez) decides to rent a room in her basement. Now nothing will ever be the same as April finds love, faith, family - and herself - in this inspirational romantic comedy featuring performances by Mary J. Blige, Gladys Knight and Marvin L. Winans.
