Mama I Want To Sing Movie Trailer

Ciara Ok, remember way back when we told you that Ciara had landed the starring role in the movie adaptation of the hit stage play “Mama I Want To Sing”? Well the first sorta mini-trailer has been released and it looks kinda interesting. There is no actual footage of any acting, just the voice of a female in the background singing (could it be Ciara) and early reviews from the film being splashed across the scene. Still, I got a Dreamgirls vibe from this clip as it appears this movie might just be a winner after all. A lot of people assumed with Ciara as the lead the film would be a critical and commercial flop, but I think Cici just might surprise us all.

I also did a quick run see over to IMDB and guess what I discovered? Kim Porter, yeah that Kim Porter, is also in this film, as is Hill Harper- who I just adore. Ralph Tresvant, Bobby Valentino and Juanita Bynum also have roles in the movie. I’m getting just a tad bit excited- are you?

Check out the trailer below.

  1. That is not Ciara singing and if she doesn’t sing in the movie expect critics and fans to pan it. Why hire Ciara as the lead if she wasn’t going to do the singing when they could have hired someone like Heather Headley who sings and acts her behind off?

  2. wow wow wow :banana:

    i am loving ALL of these black movies oh my i am so excited can’t wait :banana:

    i don’t care who’s singing i just hope it’s good :banana:

  3. To me, it sounds like Ciara… or some young, woman with a somewhat nasally voice. 😆

    To the OP, it ‘does’ have a Dreamgirls vibe to it. I’ll wait until its DVD release before I view it. Don’t want the letdown I experienced with Dreamgirls to happen again.

  4. SHE CAN’T BE NO WORST THAN BEYONCE IN DREAMGIRLS… SO I’M NOT EXPECTING MUCH..

    JUST HOPE THE ACTING IS GREAT!!!!!!

  5. Thank you, Step for giving THE GOODIES QUEEN PROPS. CIARA said from day one she want to keep it simple on her first alblum. CIARA THE EVOLUTION was GOODIES to the 10x. I love every song on it. I’m a CIARA fan for life because I believe Ciara will be larger than any previous artist before. What makes Ciara different from others is her energy. I ‘m surprise Ciara hasn’t been placed in fastest move for a dancer. As a real fan I know Ciara is holding back her vocal skills. Ciara Pepsi smash performance was off the chain total vocal and dancing together. It on Yahoo. I said before, Ciara will be nominated for an Oscar. Ciara came in and change the music game, now everybody has to dance . Ciara was a sponge on that set and everyone will be surprise how GREAT an actress she is. Before anyone say Ciara lip sync at PEPSI SMASH she singing to the instrumental version. Before anybody say CIARA want be around in 20 you got that right, she don’t plan on doing the matrix in her 40’s. Ciara will retire early just like Beyonce.

  6. CIara is probably talented in many ways (I’ll give her props and say she can dance), but I’m sorry, HOMEGIRL CANNOT SING. Her voice is mediocre at best, and that is definitely not her singing in the background. However, it seems as if the movie might be interesting, so I may go see it.

  7. Ciara definitely can’t sing. I found that out when she sang “And I” live. Her voice is deep and she sounded a bit mannish live so I am definitely sure that if she has to do any singing live she will bomb out.

  8. aww cici i know she aint the best singer but she can work it out if some people label themselves actors and singers because some dummies are dumb enough to buy their shit then cici will be a hit :bowdown: :dance1:

  10. @knockkey,

    CIARA CHANGED WAT GAME? SURE NOT MUSIC GAME. EVERYONE DOESNT HAVE TO DANCE. BEYONCE WAS DANCING AND SINGIN LONG TIME BEFORE CIARA. SO TELL ME WAT GAME CIARA CHANGED CAUSE IT SEEMS I WAS NOT ON PLANET EARTH WHEN SHE DID.

  11. I love how people continue to hate on Ciara, but she continues to do her thing and make her money. While staying sweet and humble, she ain’t even thinking about yall that are hating.Oh and please don’t compare whatever that is that Bey does on stage to ci’s dancing.

  12. Oh and please don’t compare whatever that is that Bey does on stage to ci’s dancing. :bowdown:

  13. :bowdown: cici do your thing i rather suport a voiceless sista that make us look good rather than one dumb b…. that make us all look like prostitue i’m loving the trailer and the cast i’ll be there to show support :thumbsup:

  14. I’m not sure whether it’s her or not, I’m not that well acquainted with her voice (I do like a few of her singles though). Ciara is not mainly a singer, she is a dancer. In the same way the Jennifer Lopez is not a singer, she is a dancer. They are entertainers, and that just happens to be their skill.

    If she is trying to be an actress, then she may do well to seek a role that would allow her to act without pulling her sub-par voice into the equation. Perhaps stepping outside the box and not falling into the trap that some entertainers do: Go for a singing role in attempt to be an actress. Nor a dancer.

    I hope this works out for her, because she seems nice. But I also hope that the actress side of her, if it is really there and this not just taking an opportunity when it comes, decides to really pursue some purely acting roles.

  15. I agree with Dana if they want someone to sing and act in a broadway musical that will be a movie then Heather Headley is your girl.I just read that she is going on tour with Andrea Bocelli

  16. First and foremost, why is Beyonce’s name even being mentioned? This is ridiculous. She nor Ciara are the standard of anything. Neither one of them originated dancing. Also, there have been many movies about a female singer and the music industry. Now Dreamgirls came out as a movie and anything that similar to that will be compared. Remember Dreamgirls was a play before the movie, and there was also “Sparkle” and many other movies. I’m so sick of people acting like Beyonce invented everything.

    Back to the movie, I don’t understand how having Ciara in the movie will cause people to believe it would be a flop. She is a successful, popular recording artists. If anything . I don’t think that is Ciara singing but I’m not going to write her voice off just yet either. She could not have possibly taken this role knowing she couldn’t sing. She would only embarass herself by not singing, and I don’t see her, or the director, doing that. So I think their is more there then we have been hearing.

    I’m really looking forward to the movie just to see how well she will do. Also, it’s a great cast so I’m sure it will be entertaining.

  17. I’m so sick of people acting like Beyonce invented everything. :bowdown:

  18. I don’t think that’s Ciara, but everything is possible. You know why they took Ciara no matter if she can or can’t sing? BECAUSE OF HER ACTING SKILLS. There are tons of actors who can’t sing and other people’s voices are used when they have to play a singer. If that’s not her voice, Ciara being a singer, it can damage her credibilty as a singer cause it will expose the fact that she really CAN’T sing. But if that’s her voice then kudos to her. Like I said, anything is possible, vocal chords are muscles that can be developped (Beyonce didn’t sound like she does when she first came out, this is the result of lotta practice), so if she did take vocal lessons for this movie, she may have developped those muscles.

    I always wondered though, why do girls get dissed for being mediocre singers when Omarion and Lloyd get away with it? Nobody says nothing about those boys and they can’t sing to save their lives.

  19. The peron singing did sound a little bad so it may have been ciara. She can sing a little but just basic stuff. Sorry 😀 But her CD was great!!

  20. im just glad beyonce is not in the movie :banana: :banana: :banana: :thumbsup:

  21. What is going on with the entertainment world. That voice reminds me of the Chipmunks. Will the reall singers, please stand up? :thumbsdown:

  22. dancin is dancin. if u go to africa u will see people dancing like how bey dances. beyonce gets some of her moves from african women. so beyonce aint mek up dancing. i responded to someone who said that ciara changed the music game but we already have a janet jackson who is no stranger to dancing and is a recarnation into ciara, aaliyah danced. so wat game did ciara change? ciara dances and does it well so wat. she aint changed nuttin.

    it is not hatin on ciara, i just want to know how has ciara changed the music game according to someone. cause i probably tek a vacation to mars, jlo danced, there are so many people that danced and them aint changed a thing. BRITNEY SPEARS danced her butt off. so wat has ciara changed? nowadays we all know artists dont have to come out and danced cause jhud dont dance, neyo doesnt dance like chris, rihanna doesnt dance much, etc and a whole list of people who dont dance.

  23. hmm hmm bajan i agree “beyonce gets some of her moves from african women” dont you mean all of her moves?
    dolla bell aint u one of beyonce’s worshipper?

  24. This isn’t Ciara’s voice. It’s the original play’s singer’s voice. As you all see this isnt even an official trailer first of all. I live here in baton rouge where they filmed and i was there when they had an open casting call. i was an extra on set and yes its ciara who will be singing for the film, but as for this commercial trailer its not. and I will add that cici has alot of great acting potential as i saw on set. and this is ciara’s second film everyone(but in her 1st film she didnt have any acting lessons and did a good job so i can imagine how good she’ll be now that shes taken lessons) and as far as beyonce, what has she proved acting wise?!(point blank she cant act, she only chooses singing roles carmen,austin powers,fighting temptations,dreamgirls) please stop ptting money she doesnt deserve in her pockets and give it to someone who actually studies for a role and appreciates the craft! like Ciara

  25. YES. I WANT TO CHECK IT OUT. EVERYBODY WHO IS IN THIS MOVIE WILL DEFINITELY PLAY THERE ROLE :thumbsup: (MY OPINION)

  26. OH ONE MORE THING I DID NOT KNOW KIM PORTER AND BOBBY V. WAS IN THIS MOVIE. 🙄

    OH WELL I HOPE THESE TWO CAN SHOW US WHAT THEY GOT

  27. Chante you asked the right question, why is it that girl singers get the harsh criticism and boys don’t? The girls will scream and fan over the boy singers which is only natural but they know good and well that they can’t really sing. Guys don’t really say anything about other boy singers and they only comment on the girl singer’s looks. Some women can be so harsh on one another that it really just falls down to their own insecurity or thier own lack of contentment. Not that I’m saying we should all be a fan of that one person but we shouldn’t be so negative either. That might be Ciara’s voice and that might not be, there is no commercial yet so we don’t know. It’s not like the girl can’t sing you know practice makes perfect. Take Keyshia Cole for example. IMO.

  28. :stop: :dance1:

    I glad they are doing this movie. We need more black actors working. Ciara, for the lead role, come on they could have hired a real singer/actress for the part.

  29. the trailer is wack it doesn’t show anything—it doesn’t show anybody!

  30. You all may not know this and I am Probably telling my age, but the woman who had the orignal role in the play was Desiree Coleman who is married to the former N.Y. Knicks basket ball player,Mark Jackson and they both grew up in my neigborhood in Queens,N.Y. She did her thing back then on the stage.I still don’t understand the big deal with Beyonce. EVERY movie she stared in her acting was HORRIBLE!!Her singing is another talk show all together, :noway: I guess when you have determination and your father (and mother) pushing to the for front you do what you have to. We all saw that coming from the day’s of destiny’s child.Ciara is a great dancer, Beyonce isn’t. :noway: I would not be surprised if years from now people will consider her an ICON (whatever you all consider an ICON) How is beyond me but EVERYONE either LOVES her or HATES her or may just be facinated by her,like “HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?” Rest assured it’s ALL smoke and mirrors, “trust”!!I’m not a hater but I’m old school what happend to people giving props to the REAL DIVAS: Pattie La Belle , Tina Marie, Chaka Kahn, Nina Simone, etc.? :bowdown: I do think Heather Headly would have been GREAT for this role .I hope Ciara worked on her Vocal chords because this could be a great thing for her. Let’s wait for the movie to come out…..
