Kasi Lemmons’ Black Nativity is nothing short of star power. From Angela Bassett to Forest Whitaker, the film is filled with incredible talent. But during a recent interview with co-star Luke James, it was Jennifer Hudson that the singer raved about.
“I’m a person that works off of energy and her aura is just inviting,” James told HipHollywood. “It’s a beautiful thing; especially for someone of her stature that’s gotten such accolades that you can feel her aura and it’s not tainted, it’s very positive. It’s filled with light and it just makes you want to be great and happy.”
In the contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes’ celebrated play, Luke plays a kid named JoJo who later becomes Joseph in the retelling of the Nativity story.
The film which opened this week, also stars Jacob Latimore, Tyrese Gibson and Mary J. Blige.
