Storyline

For 30 years, Bishop Fred Jones and his family have performed on the southern gospel circuit, largely unseen by those outside the Pentecostal faith. When the Bishop, despite objections from many within his faith, decided to take his family's musical ministry outside the church, he unexpectedly connected with the oddest of allies -- a jaded, atheistic rock critic, who also happened to be a gospel historian. To Michael Corcoran, the Jones Family Singers represent a living link to a style of gospel he thought had disappeared. These most unlikely of friends bonded through perhaps one shared trait -- a deeply rooted rebelliousness. Written by Anonymous

Really Enjoyed this film!
14 April 2015 | by cydtSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed the film! It touched my heart to see the hard work and perseverance of this family and specifically Bishop Jones. The family doesn't seem to currently have much as far as earthly possessions; But what they do have is far more valuable...their strong faith in God and love and respect for each other. It's impressive to see several generations of this family work together to create gospel music with a unique blend of soul and funk and delivered with great passion. The lyrics are evident of life's struggles rooted in undeniable faith that God will make a way for anyone who calls out to Him. Even through their determination to make a way for their music, they didn't compromise the integrity of their message. I hope the Jones family truly makes it to the top!
