In this electrifying musical drama starring R & B sensation Ciara and Hollywood favorite Lynn Whitfield (The Josephine Baker Story), Ciara plays Amara Winter, a beautiful and divinely talented young gospel singer on the verge of pop stardom. But Amara's mother Lillian (Whitfield), a strong-willed TV preacher, disapproves of her daughter's less-than-pious image. As they search for common ground, mother and daughter may just discover their journeys aren't so different after all. Based on the award-winning off-Broadway musical and featuring R & B legend Patti LaBelle, this joyful celebration of faith and family will put a song in your heart!

Preachy musical has few surprises, not enough songs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this family drama includes some heated family arguments and plenty of discussions that center on faith and moral choices. Though the movie spends a lot of time on the potential problems that fame and success bring, the main characters eventually realize that family is the most important thing in their lives. Expect a bit of drinking, a few skimpy outfits, and scenes set in combat zones (though no actual combat is shown).
