Mama, I Want To SingMusical movie Mama, I Want To Sing is based on the off-Broadway hit play by Vy Higginsen.

The film stars multi-platinum-selling artist Ciara as Amara, a young gospel singer who dreams of pop stardom, naturally. Discovered by agents, Amara is swept away from her tight-knit community for recording sessions and television appearances.

As she pursues her music career, however, Amara’s relationship with her preacher mother (Lynn Whitfield, The Women) is strained, as her mother wants her to stay grounded. As she navigates the often treacherous world of celebrity and still remain true to herself and her family, Amara turns to her father (Marvin Winans, TV’s House of Payne) and Sister Carrie (Patti LaBelle, Semi-Pro) for support.

Rated PG, Mama, I Want To Sing also stars Billy Zane (Sniper Reloaded), Hill Harper (For Colored Girls), Kevin Phillips (S.W.A.T.: Firefight) and Broadway legend Ben Vereen (Idlewild). The movie was written and directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, who also directed the musical Preaching to the Choir.

Mama, I Want To Sing was produced in 2009 but sat on the shelves for a few years before being released in 2011. Essentially, it’s a DVD premiere.

No special features are on the DVD.
