It's schizophrenic – that's how I describe it.

I'm really happy for the loyalty and continued support of my fans.

What is important to me about this movie is that the stories and messages are for anyone. Anyone who needs to learn about forgiveness will enjoy it no matter who they are.

It's schizophrenic -- that's how I describe it. It's all over the place, man. It's joy, it's happy, it's sad, it's everything. It's just an emotional roller coaster, you know? Even the plays themselves, you come to see them and it's like a stand-up comedic routine. I'm breaking the wall. I'm talking to the audience. It's theater. It's some of everything. It's concert.

You should've heard the roar of these thousands of black people in the room. They were fired up and angry and ready to go to the movies.

There's a huge demand for my entertainment, and I can't meet the need. So I decided to try a TV show to reach as many of my fans as possible.
