Rousing Music Coming to 'Church'

New indie film about an African-American congregation big on gospel music

Church, a faith-based independent film opening in limited release on Oct. 16, focuses on the experiences of a typical African-American congregation -- in this case, "The Glorious New Life Greater Faith Tabernacle Church of the Living God in Christ, or as some like to call it, The Church on the Hill," as a voiceover on the trailer proclaims.

"Everyone has a story about the church they attend," says executive producer Tommy Ross. "What we have done is taken those funniest stories, blended them with some original music and unforgettable characters to create a cinematic experience that will not be forgotten.”

Gospel greats Daryl Coley and Blanche McAllister Dykes lend their voices to the film.
