In a USA Today profile of the film today, you'll find 4 official images from the film (until now, we'd only seen on-set photos taken by fans), as well some useful information about what to expect, like the music song in the movie musical will include R&B, gospel, and also rap; and Mary J. 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.
