The new inspirational faith-based film, Joyful Noise, starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton is getting quite a bit of buzz. Last night, KeKe Palmer, another of the film's stars, hosted a private ATL screening of the film that pulled out some stars like Gospel great, Kirk Franklin.
The young popular actress also chatted with Good Day Atlanta and shares quite a bit about her church background. "My father's a Deacon, my mother's a choir director so I grew up in the church, and singing in the choir, begging my mom if I could have a solo. That's all very close to home for me."
As the conversation moved forward, Palmer also delved into the topic of faith and what true faith looks like. "Real faith is when you believe in something that you can't see. When things are going really bad and you can still get up and say I believe that they're gonna get better, that there's a higher lesson to what I'm going through. It can be hard sometimes and to turn it around like that, that's true faith."
