Is Fred Hammond depressed, lost and mad at God? Maybe not in real life, but the independent filmmaker’s character sure seems to be in the dramatic trailer for his new indie drama, The Choir.
The GRAMMY®, Dove, and Stellar Award-winning gospel artist known for soul-stirring hits gave Twitter followers the exclusive sneak peek of his official foray into the indie movie industry on the evening of Thursday, March 23.
“I’ve just got to step out there on the water and cut it,” said the 56-year-old in a video, alluding to his decision to launch out in faith and debut The Choir.
The dark and racy trailer clips featuring exotic dancers, blood, violence, depression and pain is a big shift for the movie director who has spent the past 38 years writing uplifting, Bible-based songs that touch the heart, and move the soul.
