Michael B. Jordan (“Black Panther,” “Creed,” “Creed II”) and Oscar winners Jamie Foxx (“Ray,” “Baby Driver,” “Django: Unchained”) and Brie Larson (“Room,” “The Glass Castle,” “Captain Marvel”) star in the up and coming film “Just Mercy” which is based on the autobiography of World-renowned civil rights defense attorney Bryan Stevenson works to free a wrongly condemned death row prisoner.

Releasing in theaters nationwide on January 10, 2020, this inspiring drama brings one of the most important stories of our time to the big screen. Award-winning filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton (“The Glass Castle,” “Short Term 12”) directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote, based on the award-winning nonfiction bestseller by Bryan Stevenson.

Produced by Michael B. Jordan, this powerful and thought-provoking film follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson).

 

 

One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx,) who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them.

In September of 2019, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx appeared on The Tonight’s Show with Jimmy Fallon to discuss teaming up for the coming film which was inspired by the true story of Bryan Stevenson. Watch as they break down how they handled a particularly dramatic emotional courtroom scene to bring the injustice of Walter McMillian to life.

“Just Mercy” will be in theaters nationwide on January 10, 2020 and distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. (This film has been rated PG-13 for thematic content, including some racial epithets.)

Rahkii is a pervious ArtSoul Spotlight artist known for her singles “Beautiful” and Zoom. At just the age of twenty-five, Rahkii has already begun to make an impact on Chicago as a music artist. Her broad roots in music stretch further than any genre can define. Her talent was discovered when she began to sing solos in the Youth Choir at her home church. From there, Rahkii emerged onto the urban music scene by way of her education at Columbia College, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Music Theater. Discovering her voice through gospel music sparked a curiosity of various styles which she explores through her own music.

Rahkii is influenced by artists such as John Mayer, Janelle Monae and Mali Music. Taking inspiration from the diversity of the local music culture, she supports the “no genre” movement.

Some highlights of her professional career includes placing her single “Beautiful” as the theme song on the Lifetime TV series American Beauty Star in September of 2016, performing alongside great artists such as OBY, Walking on Water and Pocket Radio. She has also worked as a background vocalist for talented artist such as R.Kelly, Eryn Allen Kane, Patti Labelle, Jenifer Hudson and more.

While this list only shows a small portion of Rahkii’s accomplishments, it highlights her “jack of all trades” personality as well as her ambitious and hardworking nature. In addition, it also shows her love for collaboration of all types of music, which is why she is joining the “no genre” movement. Rahkii is an emerging artist who wholeheartedly believes that she can affect lives in a positive way with her music. She’s been blessed by God with a talent. She has a great power within her and she’s on a mission to make change. She is a Super Hero.

Hillsong United’s New Visual for Single “Whole Heart” Is Like A Prayer for Australia

Published

Hillsong United recently dropped their latest visual for their single “Whole Heart (Hold Me Now)”.  The video was recorded live at Hillsong Worship & Creative Conference in Sydney, Australia. This is the perfect song for much of Australia as they are still in recovery mode in many areas and still dealing with new fires, deaths and more in other areas.

Bushfires have burned millions of acres across Australia in recent weeks, killing an estimated 1 billion animals and more than 20 people. The entire country is asking and praying for help during this time.

If you have never travelled to Australia, it could be easy to forget its size. Being almost 3 million square miles (which is roughly the size of the U.S. mainland), a large portion of the country has not been affected by the fires and most tourism businesses are still open. While that is good news for the areas not effected by the fires, many have been moved by compassion to give back to those who are currently being effected. Even Hollywood is getting involved.

Elton John and other artists and actors/actresses with ties to the country have been giving money to help fix the massive destruction that has been caused in the areas effected. John himself recently stated, “the plight of the animals and lost of their habitat” was “on a biblical scale and heartbreaking”.

 

 

Fire fighters were recently welcomed in Sydney Australia with applause! A well deserved welcome for the brave men and women who are helping to save the areas effected by these devastating fires. Our prayers are with everyone effected by this tragedy. During times like this, it’s encouraging to have artists like Hillsong United consistently releasing music that continues to inspire and bring hope in the midst of dark times. Scroll down to hear the full latest album from Hillsong United.
