A group of talented Clevelanders are making their major motion picture debut in a way they never imagined.
Since opening this past weekend, “Bad Grandpa” continues to be the No. 1 movie in the country, already raking in more than $32 million.
Several professional musicans agreed to sing gospel at a Chargin Falls funeral last October. Little did they know this year it would be on the big screen in Johnny Knoxville’s latest Jackass production.
“They told me it was a funeral, and a family that didn’t have much family,” said Lacretia Bolden. “She loved gospel music.”
The song request? “It’s a little different for a funeral. ‘Precious Lord’ or ‘Amazing Grace’ (are common),” said Bolden. “But ‘I got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart’ was a little far.”
The scene stealer: When the woman, Bad Grandpa’s wife, rolled out of the casket in a mid-service brawl.
“The best part was when she fell out of that casket. That was … it was unexplainable,” said Bolden.
