Preaching to the Choir
Release Date: April 14th, 2006
Estranged since the death of their parents years ago, twin brothers, Teshawn and Wesley Tucker, have taken radically different paths in life. Wes (Darien Sills-Evans) has become a minister in a Harlem gospel church while Te (Billoah Greene) perpetrates the gangster lifestyle as Hip Hop star Zulu. They are forced into reconciliation when Te flees LA to his childhood home in Harlem to hide from his enraged record producer, Bull Sharky (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). Te tries to disappear in his preacher brother’s world of the gospel church but becomes entrenched in the community and finds himself reconnecting with his past by becoming involved in the failing church choir. There, he is comforted by Aunt June (Janine Green), a lovely church goer with her fingers on the pulse of the history, and magic, of Harlem. As Bull Sharky and his posse move east tracking Te down, Te and Wes must confront their own demons and attempt to work out their differences. Through the intersection of gospel and hip hip, east coast and west coast, the sacred and the secular, PREACHING TO THE CHOIR weaves a story of unconditional love and redemption, a story of community.
