Movie Summary

Director:
Charles Randolph-Wright
Released:
2005
Rating:
PG-13
Preaching to the Choir provides some divine intervention to heal the intense sibling rivalry of twins Teshawn (Billah Greene) and Wesley Tucker (Darien Sills-Evans). The brothers are driven apart following the tragic deaths of their parents. Wesley becomes a respected minister in Harlem, taking comfort in his faith. Teshawn moves to Los Angeles and finds success in the music industry by relying on a thuggish persona. But Teshawn's success brings a dangerous enemy. When record producer Bull Sharky (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) vows he will end not only Teshawn's skyrocketing career but also his life, Teshawn returns to his home in Harlem and this brother's church. Teshawn finds purpose and comfort in working with the gospel church's struggling choir and finds himself falling for the devout Kia (Janine Green). But as Bull's thugs close in on the former hip-hop star, Teshawn and Wesley must confront their pasts to have hope for a future. The 2005 comedy was directed by Charles Randolph-Wright.
