Release Date: Unknown | Length: Unknown | Genre: Biography, Drama, History, Music | MPAA Rating: Unknown | Note(s): Original announcement. Ledisi played Mahalia Jackson in Selma. Ericka Nicole Malone is a producer on this project. I wasn’t able to identify Ava Elise Cherry. She plays young Mahalia in the movie and I wonder if she is actually Ava Elise Farmer but I haven’t been able to prove that. Still waiting for a release date on this.
