5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Black Nativity November 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The Kasi Lemmons directed forthcoming movie "Black Nativity" opens up a Pandora box of pleasant surprises. Big screen beau Angela Bassett who has fronted Blockbuster smashes such as "What's Love Got to Do With It," "Waiting to Exhale" and "Boesman and Lena" now plays a grandmother and a pastor's wife. Instead of prancing on the stage, Queen of Hip Hop Mary J. Blige now plays an angel who dons her white leather maxi coat, her matching stiletto-heeled boots and a pair of wings heralding some inner city shepherds to worship the baby Jesus. "Black Nativity," which opens on the big screen this Thanksgiving, is based on Langston Hughes 1961 Gospel musical. With an ensemble cast of the biggest names in both the music and movie business such as Forest Whittaker, Tyrese Gibson, Jennifer Hudson, Jacob Latimore, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Nas and the aforementioned Blige and Bassett, "Black Nativity" is destined to ring in coffers and loads of movie stubs.

While many soundtracks these days have songs tangentially connected to the movie's plotline, this is not the case here. Thanks to the soundtrack's executive producer Raphael Saadiq (D'Angelo, Joss Stone & Whitney Houston), the 12 cuts here expound on the movie's major turning points, retelling the whole movie's salient narrative touch stones from the beginning of the end. The story revolves around a struggling Baltimore single mother (played by Jennifer Hudson) who cannot make ends meet. So, one day she and her teenage son Langston (played by heart throb Jacob Latimore) find themselves homeless. Unable to put a roof above the both of them, she sends her son to her estranged parents, living in New York, for Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Listening November 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely love the soundtrack to the movie Black Nativity. Not only are there songs by some of my favorite singers Jennifer Hudson, Mary J Blige and Tyrese on the album, but Angela Bassett and Forrest Whitaker also have a few songs on the soundtrack. Listening to the soundtrack has me excited to see the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the music in the movie November 28, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Loved the music in the movie so I had to get the soundtrack. The movie was a total surprise, not expecting it to be an integration of a stage play, drama and musical. All the singers and actors including Forrest Whitaker (who sings) did a great job.
