Last night I got a chance to check out the screening of the Black Nativity featuring an all star cast — Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker,Tyrese Gibson, Mary J. Blige, Nas, Vondie Curtis-Hal, and Rotimi.
Directed by Kasi Lemmons, the film is based on Langston Hughes’ Black Nativity play and you will find pieces of him through out the film.
To me the film is the perfect holiday feel-good movie, but not your normal black holiday movie. It’s a musical with a twist. I was excited about the different elements of hip-hop that they added to the movie. And to be honest some of my favorite scenes included Nas blessing us with his poetic rhymes.
If you are the type to get a little teary eyed while watching a movie, make sure you bring your tissue because I had to hold mine back. If your wondering who you should see the movie with… I suggest making it a family outing. There is enough soulful, hip-hop, and gospel elements to please everyone.
Let left the movie feeling excited about what I saw, but even more excited about the soundtrack!
Keeping reading for details about the soundtrack that is available now.
