Letoya & Essence To Become “Preacher’s Kids”

While speaking to Essence Atkins on her role in ‘Love For Sale’, which comes out on DVD on Oct. 21st, she mentioned to Blackfilm.com that she’s set to a do an independent film for Warner Bros., a musical, called ‘Preacher’s Kid’. Also featured in the film are R&B singer Tank, Ella Joyce, Clifton Powell, and Gospel singer Kierra “Kiki” Sheard, and Letoya Luckett. The film will be written and directed by Stan Foster. Tired of being a Preacher’s daughter and longing to experience more of life, 20-something Angie King strikes out on her own for the very first time and joins a traveling gospel show. In this modern-day rendition of the fable of The Prodigal Son, she soon discovers life on the road is tough but fears going home with nothing to show for herself, or worse, to a father who no longer loves her.

Filming will be starting this month in Atlanta.

Essence Atkins: It’s basically about the world of gospel circuit plays and a girl who gets enticed by that world and leaves her background behind. She leaves her father, who’s a pastor of a church, to go off in this world and what happens to her there. It’s a musical, but I’m one of the few actors who is not singing in the film. I don’t want people to think that I’m crossing over and ready to cut an album. I’ll be in Atlanta shooting the film .


  1. :iagree: it does sound like it would a good movie. I’ll be checking for it…if I can remember :brownsista:

  2. Sound interesting, I’ ll go and see it, I ‘ m rooting for letoya I wish her much much success

  3. Oooh LeToya that is my girl and Essense Atkins yeah I’ll watch. They both are down to earth. Wish all of them the best.

  4. I will definitely be looking for this movie as well especially since it is about a story that is all too familiar to many people. I am looking forward to seeing LaToya as well. I know they will all do a great job.

  5. It sound interesting i read more about it sound good

  6. I don’t think Letoya’s label is behind her anymore. It has taken eons for her sophomore album to come out and what songs do hit the net are left overs from the first cd. I also don’t think the public is interested anymore. We all wanted to see what she could o the first time but now that we know we don’t need to see anymore. Toya was definitely weak in the singing department and her stage game ain’t that great either.

  7. LeToya has been dabbling in a lot of things over the last two years including acting in low budget and straight to dvd movies. Music may not be at the top of her list of things she wants to do anymore. Plus I hear she has opened up even more Lady Elle stores in Texas.

  8. Dana what are you talking about? She hasn’t done an low budget movies at all and she hasn’t opened up any additional Lady Elle boutiques yet. She also is not quitting music, she’s waiting for her label to get under control so that she can get the proper promotion unlike her label mates Cherish.

  9. capital records needs to get their stuff together because LEtoya’s time is basically over and she will be starting from zero agian coming out. They ar holding her up. Let her go at least she is a platinum selling artist…the only member of DC to ever do it outside of Beyonce and it speaks VOLUMES! STOP PLAYING WITH HER SHE IS AN ARTIST.
