Gospel Music’s leading male group The Wardlaw Brothers (TWB) who will make their debut in the upcoming film with appearances and music features. TWB’s chart topping radio hit “Right Now Lord” and worship cover “Here I Am To Worship” are featured/performed songs in the movie. TWB songwriter Luther Wardlaw also penned a new original song and theme for the movie “Angel’s Wings.”
“On Angel’s Wings,” stars Reginald Vel Johnson, Robin Givens, Bill Cobbs, Taylor Faye Ruffin, Tyler Humphrey, Gerald Webb, Sean Huze and Sweet Brown, and is a new heartwarming, family film directed by Aaron Williams (Preaching to the Pastor, The Pastor’s Secrets, Mama I Want to Sing). The film will be released this summer.
The moving story is another significant contribution towards addressing the pervasive lack of positive content for the African-American community. African-Americans are a demographic creator Aaron Williams sees as largely neglected by not only the major studios, but also by a large percentage of independent filmmakers. On working with VelJohnson, the young director’s enthusiasm is palpable,
“As an African-American growing up when I did it was tough. I remember wondering where were people that looked like me and my friends and family on television – other than in the back of a squad car on Hill Street Blues!” Williams continues, “There were so few positive portrayals of black families and culture… especially black men. On network television in the eighties and nineties there were only two: Bill Cosby and Reginald VelJohnson! To work with him [VelJohnson] on this film is a real blessing.”
