Mama I Want To Sing (Movie Review)
"Summary: A story about faith, family, and the power of love, MAMA, I WANT TO SING smashes onto DVD February 14 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Adapted from the hit off-Broadway musical,MAMA, I WANT TO SING brings down the house with electrifying performances by R&B and gospel music legends.
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."
Our Opinion: I really enjoyed this movie. With all that is happening in this fast paced world and all of the options to become somebody this movie shows true. Life is not always easy but when chosen the right path it will lead you down the right road. Mama I Want To Sing is a truly an inspiration and we defiantly give it two thumbs up.
