Starring Demetria McKinney, Chaz Lamar Shepherd & Kirk Franklin. Additional cast includes Angela Birchett, Kendra C Johnson and Grammy winner Regina Belle.2021-11-26T04:04:55Z

From renowned gospel singer Kirk Franklin comes “A Gospel Christmas,” the story of a young woman who takes over as the lead pastor at a new church.

The Lifetime press release reads:

When Olivia (Demetria McKinney), a young assistant pastor, gets assigned to be a lead pastor at a new church a month before Christmas, she’s fearful she can’t manage the transition, including getting the choir ready to open the town’s annual Winter Jamboree. Banding together with her new congregation, Olivia discovers a new home for herself, and even finds a little Christmas romance along the way! Featuring a special appearance and songs written and arranged by Kirk Franklin.

The film co-stars Chaz Lamar Shepherd, Jen Harper, Shacai O’Neal, Steven Reddington, John Mullins, and Kendra C. Johnson.

In an interview with Urban Bridgez E-Zine, McKinney said that what she loves most about this film is that it celebrates all different types of voices within the world of gospel music.

“The thing that drove me to do this project was Olivia … she does not sing like the traditional gospel singer … Olivia does not sound like that. I love the story. I love the fact that there were gonna be all these amazing singers and this music, but the thing that made me feel humbled in doing it was that they celebrated the differences and the beauty of voices that we have,” said McKinney.

She added, “You have this other element that people will get to see in there and it’s OK and it’s good and it’s a blessing too, so I think that was a thing that related and resonated with me because I went through that for a long time … it was terrifying for me because I didn’t sound like everybody else, I wasn’t doing what everybody else was doing, so I think that was what drove me [to do the film].”
