is reporting that Ciara, Patti LaBelle and Lynn Whitfield will star in the film adaption of the gospel musical "Mama, I Want to Sing!"
"Mama, I Want to Sing!" tells the story of a preacher's daughter, who rises from the church choir to pop stardom. The movie will begin production in Baton Rouge, La., next month and is slated for theatrical release in February 2008.
I've been getting on my Tyler Perry grind during the weekend. Hey now, don't make jokes. I can't give away too many details but I'm in the process of holding auditions for my first stage play, "Mama, Why You Soaking Your Girdle In The Sink Again? I'm Tired of Brushing My Teeth In The Tub!"
I'm praying that Jayo Felony will agree to sign on as the lead character, Lil' Tayder Tot. Wish me luck!
