Gospel music singers Jekalyn Carr and Koryn Hawthorne are both featured in the new Peacock original film ‘Praise This‘
Praise This follows aspiring musical superstar Sam (Five-time Grammy nominee Chloe Bailey; Grown-ish), a young woman driven, at almost any cost, to break into the music business. So, when her father (Philip Fornah; Better Call Saul), worried that Sam is associating with a dangerous crowd, moves them from Los Angeles to Atlanta to live with Sam’s sunny cousin, Jess (Anjelika Washington; Tall Girl franchise), Sam is …not happy.
But when Sam is forced to join her cousin’s struggling, underdog praise team in the lead-up to a national championship competition, she sees an opportunity to finally make her dreams come true. What she discovers, though, is that ambition can command a high price and that praise is not about glory, but gratitude.
The film also stars comedian Druski (House Party), GRAMMY-nominated hip hop sensation Quavo (Atlanta), Grammy nominee Tristan Mack Wilds (The Wire), Birgundi Baker (The Chi), Loren Lott (Tag), Kiara Iman Heffner (Resentment), newcomer Ilario Grant, Crystal Hayslett (Sistas), Cocoa Brown (9-1-1), Vanessa Fraction (Barbershop 2: Back in Business) and GRAMY-nominated gospel stars Jekalyn Carr and Koryn Hawthorne.
