Plot Summary

Inspired by the hit off-Broadway play, Amara Winter, a strikingly beautiful and charismatic young singer, is on the verge of pop stardom. Raised in the church by her father, Reverend Dr. Kenneth Winter and mother, Lillian Winter, Amara and her younger brother Luke have a very strong bond. After her fathers untimely death, her mother is thrusts into the limelight in the role as preacher, a daring move that ultimately catapults her to the top of the gospel world. Paralleling her mothers success, Amara soon becomes a huge star in her own right, taking the pop music world by storm. Conflict begins to ensue when her mother is confronted with and unequivocally disapproves of Amara's secular music and videos. Amara must learn to pursue her dreams while both navigating the often treacherous world of celebrity and striving to remain true to herself and family. Amara and her mother must work through their differences realizing that their journeys are not quite so different after all. A heart-warming story that all ages will enjoy, Mama, I Want to Sing! reminds us all not to be afraid dance to the music, to the beat of our own drum. Written by Talisa Jackson
