If these kids did their own singing, they've got bright futures ahead of them.

Audience Reviews for Let It Shine


This Disney Production musical premiered on Disney Channel and it featured an ensemble cast of Tyler James Williams, Coco Jones, Trevor Jackson and Brandon Mychal Smith. The story of a pastorr's son who is talented rapper and musician - and is some kind of a young African-American Cyrano de Bergerac. The main character is named Cyrus DeBarge and he and his best friend Kris McDuffy reunite with their childhood friend, teenage singing sensation Roxanne "Roxie" Andrews, whose music label is sponsoring a songwriting contest at a teen club...

I think that is enough of the story... that wasn't the strongest point of the movie... I'll mentions that the film was directed by Paul Hoen and written by Eric Daniel and Don D. Scott and the result wasn't too great! The music is too ordinary with the exceptions of couple of songs out of 13 originals - all the tracks were written by top songwriters and producers in the pop and R&B business but unfortunately, the soundtrack does not feature the famous lines of "Roxie, I'm sorry" as in the film version of "Me and You" performed by Tyler James Williams (Cyrus) and Coco Jones (Roxie).

It's a movie designed for a certain age - younger school kids - and if you're looking for a high quality entertaining art work - better skip it. If you are church goer and you want your kids to have restricted access to the bad influence of the "world", maybe you could choose it as an option for Saturday night!
