Dre (Deitrick Haddon) is an entertainer who looks and sounds like a low budget "Prince." In this film he is also a player and goes to church on a lost bet to his childhood friend Chris Scott (Robert Ri'chard) who is part of his entourage. While at church he tries to pick up Ariel (Lanisha Cole) and ends up disgusted as this mega-church only reinforces the negative stereotypes.

Once some of the characters are established, Dre gets robbed by his own security people and shot. During this time he has an out of body "Christmas Carol" type of experience which leads us to the expected ending.

African-American spirituals are not on my favorite film list. If they are on yours, you might rate this one 4-5 stars. The acting was forced and didn't seem natural, perhaps because of the water downed dialouge. The music was good, what little there was, with Dre lip syncing. He could kiss a member of the audience and not miss a note. There is also the unbelievable aspect...who carries $50,000 in cash to pay an artist? My biggest criticism of the film is that it endorses the mega-church idea, same as the film "Brother White." If you like mega-churches (and I don't) then these films are for you.
