    Mama, I Want to Sing
    R&B icon Patti LaBelle stars in writer/director Charles Randolph-Wright's big screen adaptation of the off-Broadway hit about a young gospel singer who clashes with her preacher mother after becoming a pop star. Amara Winter (Ciara) has a voice that could shake the pillars of heaven. Every Sunday morning, her voice lifts the spirit of the lord up for all to exalt. But when Amara abandons the congregation for a shot at superstardom, her risqué image draws the ire of her disapproving mother Lillian (Lynn Whitfield), a respected preacher. Now, in order to avoid losing the thing that matters most to both of them, Amara and her mother must find a way to see past their differences, and reconnect through the power of faith. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I WISH I could get my money back


      I try to support indie films and straight to video movies that just couldn't secure distribution, but I could not stomach this film. The acting was horrible. I saw the original stage play when I was a kid so I was already familiar with the story, and I have no problem with the "creative" license that was taken to change things around a bit, but the acting, the editing, the script... ugh, I'm done.

      I love the plays, I went to see the first play with my daughter, and went to see the second play about 3 years ago, so now the movie was great as well
