Man it’s TRULY a blessing to be able to work within your gift, with amazingly gifted people you love, in efforts to put together a project for one of your heroes. When @coodie_n_chike hit me up about writing and playing a role that would allow us to pay homage to #DrMartinLutherKingJr it was jaw dropping. It brought everything around full circle from my days at @richcentralhs where I would study and perform pieces for our #MartinLutherKingJr assemblies. Now he we were prepping, researching, and grinding it out to prepare a film in honor of his 90th birthday. GOD is so good!! Thanks to my brothers Coodie Simmons & Chike Ozah for always believing in me, to the most amazing wife ever @tarreytorae for all the work you do behind the scenes and the beautiful energy you constantly pour into me, to @iammakeda519 for holding us down while producing this film, to the @ncrmuseum for allowing us to film on the balcony of the #LorraineMotel, to @thefirehousetheatre for welcoming us to film the stage play, and to @bet and the #King family for trusting us to create something that would pay tribute to this icon and trailblazer. Thanks so much to everyone who watched and who hit us up to show love for #Martin#LegacyOfAKing! Your support means the world. Thank you #MartinLutherKing for all that you have done for us. You broke down amazing doors that still allow us great opportunities like these. We LOVE YOU!! Check out the wrap video and some of the pics from behind the scenes below. Big S/O to @citizenchance @chrisrobonline for doing an AMAZING job with the music. If you missed it you can WATCH IT HERE AT THIS LINK. MUCH LOVE!!
