Blige will, with her platinum Afro, plays a guardian angel to star Jacob Latimore's character, Langston; and both Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett do their own singing in the film, with Jennifer Hudson saying that they both can carry a tune. Hudson also said that she's been offered "quite a few" musicals, but hasn't been interested.
