Say Amen, Somebody

An exuberant documentary spotlighting the special world of gospel music.

At least two dozen hand-clapping songs are featured within the film’s joyous 100 minutes. Special emphasis is given to the lives and careers of two giants in the business: Singers “Mother” Willie Mae Ford Smith and “Professor” Thomas A. Dorsey. Other artists spotlighted include Sallie Martin, the Barrett Sisters, and the O’Neill Brothers. Just try sitting still in your chair while experiencing Say Amen, Somebody!

"Say Amen, Somebody is the most joyful movie I've seen in a very long time. It is also one of the best musicals and one of the most interesting documentaries. And it's also a terrific good time."

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
