Story was good. Acting was not so good. Many historical mistakes with dialogue, costumes, and appearances. The hair styles are wrong for many of the men and some of the women. Details like this make the movie very poor in my opinion. One woman in the Cab Calloway scenes has glasses on and a hairdo that are more current than being from that era. These small details made it hard to enjoy. It told her life story but very thin on story line. Acting on some key parts was poor. The singing, which is almost half the movie, is very good but as far as it adding to storyline, it did not succeed. Definitely not winning any major awards.

Mahalia Jackson really?

I like Singer Ledisi but she not only doesn't look like mahalia she doesn't sound like her. She also is not the same size as mahalia. Ledisi has big bug eyes..they rushed this would've been a good movie if they made it about someone else and not mahalia.theu didn't think this movie through. I liked the movie they did last year with Danielle Brooks at least she was close to looking like her.the young Mahalia Jackson and the older haf resemblance of Mahalia.the hair styles and clothing didn't match the times. I wish they would've done better with this movie. I just didn't get it. It didn't pique my interesr.

Pleasant surprise!

Not sure what I expected, but this exceeded my expectations. I remember hearing Mahalia as a child and thinking, "wow!' Nice movie about a HUGE voice. Nicely told. Doesn't dig too deep, no foul language, or sex. Just the facts about her life and faith. Mahalia Jackson was a real treasure. Big Gospel voice. Even if you are not into Gospel, look her up! If you've never heard her sing, look her up on a music app. Deep, liquid velvet voice. Wonderful biopic, good acting. Wish we could have more movies like this one. It's not an academy award winning film. It's just really enjoyable. Thank you, Hulu. Job well done!
