Plans to bring the life story of Mahalia Jackson to the silver screen advanced with the announcement of Bill Duke signing on to direct the film. The director of A Rage In Harlem and Sister Act 2:Back In the Habit shared his thoughts: “Getting her story to the screen has been a passion project of mine for many years. When she sings ‘How I Got Over,’ it helps us all to believe that we can get over, too.”
Gospel Music’s first megastar, Jackson traveled across the world rightfully earning her the distinction as the world’s greatest Gospel singer. Her close association with Dr. King led to her unforgettable music performance at the March on Washington in 1963 and her influence on music landed her a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Mahalia Jackson Story, written by Ruth Ratny, based on the book Just Mahalia Baby will be filmed in Chicago and feature the music of Mahalia including Move On Up A Little Higher and Thomas Dorsey’s Precious Lord, Take My Hand.

Reverence Gospel Media, a new production company in Hollywood announced their first feature film, “I’m In Love With A Church Girl” will open domestically on October 18, 2013 and will follow with an international release. GRAMMY Award Winning Gospel star Israel Houghton serves as producer and contributed to the film’s soundtrack. The film stars JA Rule as a successful entrepreneur haunted by a criminal past surrounded by old friends who still behave in that former life and finds inspiration through Adrienne Bailon. Israel states, “We feel extraordinarily blessed to have been able to make this movie and can’t wait to see the impact it has on people’s lives, this is completely unlike any ‘faith-based’ movie anyone has ever seen. The characters face believable situations with real faith in a real God.” Pastor Donnie McClurkin is lending his voice to the film and says, “I’ve seen this movie, and am both moved and inspired by the story, the characters, and the quality of both movie and music, This is not what people have come to expect from Christian films, and I know it will resonate deeply with viewers – even those who would never have gone anywhere near a movie that touches on the subject of faith.” The movie will be distributed in the United States by High Top Releasing.
