MAMA, I WANT TO SING!
on DVD February 14
Talented but naïve, Amara Winter (multi-platinum selling artist Ciara) is a young gospel singer who dreams of pop stardom. Raised in a tight-knit community, Amara is discovered by agents who quickly propel her to the top with recording sessions and television appearances. Soured by the sudden media attention, Amara’s preacher mother (Emmy Award®-winner Lynn Whitfield, Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story) implores her to stay grounded. Amara faithfully pursues her music career even in the face of creating a strained relationship with her mother, and turns to her father (Grammy Award®-winner Marvin Winans, I Can Do Bad All By Myself) and Sister Carrie (Grammy Award®-winner Patti LaBelle, “A Different World”) for support. On her way to the limelight, Amara must learn to navigate the often-treacherous world of celebrity and find a way to remain true to herself and to her family.
Me and my oldest two daughter loved it. We are music lovers in our house and to see the trails and hurdles she went through just to do something she loved was amazing. No one is perfect and there is always going to be that one person who doesn't like what you are doing but its learning to overcome it especially to do what you love. This is a great family movie and we give it 2 thumbs up. So head out and get it today!
