February 6, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-EllisJennifer Hudson is coming back to your cinema screens! The very talented singer and actress has started filming in New York this week and the line-up of the film is already looking very impressive.
The incredible Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and US R&B sensation Jacob Latimore will also be starring in the film.
The movie, titled Black Nativity is based around a single mother â€“ Jennifer Hudson â€“ and her son, who she is raising single-handedly. â€œIt’s a musical and has kind of a Christmas feel to it,â€ said Jennifer. â€œAll of those things intrigued me and made me want to be a part of it.â€
Without giving too much of the storyline away, one plot does focus on the relationship between Jennifer’s character and her son, which also leads to the young teenager leaving home to live with estranged relatives. You will see how this situation pans out amongst other plots that eventually all link together, but you will have to tune in to see how.
Now, we know that Jennifer Hudson is no stranger to a musical, as her leading role in Dreamgirls was extraordinary. But what we’re looking forward to is hearing the singing voices of those you don’t normally hear; like Forest Whitaker! What do you think his singing voice will be like? Well it looks like we’ll have to wait until the holiday season to find out.
Look out for more news on Black Nativity in future 2013.
