Black Nativity

Posted: Updated:

There's only one way to work off that turkey and all the fixings. Yeah, sit in front of the TV or go to the movies. If you're looking for a flick that's filled with holiday spirit, "Black Nativity is the perfect ticket. Date night Louis?

"Black Nativity" is a modern day movie musical filled with holiday spirit.

Academy Award Winning actress and Grammy award winning singer Jennifer Hudson, stars in the movie. I caught up with J-Hud and her co-star up and coming singer Jacob Latimore in LA a to dish on the movie and get the deets on their amazing voices.

Shireen: "Did you have a moment where you were like, Man, I can sing?"

JENNIFER HUDSON: "For me, it took someone else to tell me. You're really good, like..this little girl can really really sing! And to see the impact it made on others."

Shireen: "You're so sweet, I'd be like I AM GOOD."

JENNIFER HUDSON: "Oh no, now I'll tell you I AM GOOD."

Jennifer plays a struggling single mom. Jacob plays her son together they sing like angels.

Shireen: "What kind of musical is this? Because people in Miami love their music?"

JACOB LATIMORE: "We're really just speaking through music in an artistic way. A lot of people kind of shy away from musicals, oh it's a musical, I don't wanna really watch that, I think a lot of people will be surprised about how the music ties into the film."

The music ranges from gospel, R&B to Hip-Hop. There's definitely something for everyone. Even a few classic Christmas carols.

The movie is about finding peace, love, happiness and inspiration. So we all shared what inspires us.

Shireen: "As a reporter, for me, I read books or watch 60 minutes. You know, to get inspired."

As for Jennifer and Jacob well, they just love watching people when they're really.

JENNIFER HUDSON: "Into what they do, I love that. I always find an appreciation for even if I don't know nothing about what you do, because you're passionate about it, I'm curious. I wanna learn more about it, so that, I find inspiration in."

JACOB LATIMORE: "Watching people just do what they love, just dedicating themselves, no matter what field it is."

You'll find your own inspiration when you watch "Black Nativity" and possibly even a new favorite song.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.

    One tough chick in a group of boys trying to escape a maze-enclosed, post-apocalyptic world where not one of them has any memory of how they got there. So far, that's what we've figured out about the newest sci-fi flick about to hit the big screen. We sent Deco's Liz Nagy out to watch.
