Synopsis: Black Nativity is a musical about a boy from Baltimore who is sent to New York to live with grandparents he has never met, and in turn, learns more about himself and his past.
This movie stars Angela Basset, Forest Whitaker, Jennifer Hudson, Tyrese, and Mary J. Blige, and is a good mix of songs and acting.
Rating: 3/5 stars. I like musicals, I do. But, I think I would have enjoyed this movie more if I saw the musical first. Some of the songs were at points where I wanted to hear more acting, but, sometimes, the singing did fit. Angela Basset and Forest Whitaker performed as expected (job well done). Jennifer Hudson also did well. Oh yeah, Nas is in the movie as well, but, just for a few minutes.
