A young singer turns his back on God and his father's church when tragedy strikes. He returns years later to find the once-powerful congregation in disarray. With his childhood nemesis creating a "new vision" for the church, he is forced to deal with family, career and relationship issues that send him on a collision course with redemption or destruction. Set in the world of the African-American church and gospel music from director Rob Hardy (Trois, Trois 2: Pandora's Box), THE GOSPEL features an all-star cast including Boris Kodjoe (Love and Basketball), Omar Gooding (Baby Boy), Nona Gaye (The Matrix Reloaded), Clifton Powell (Ray), Tamyra Gray (TV's "American Idol" star) and Keshia Knight Pulliam (TV's "The Cosby Show") and the hottest names in gospel with GRAMMY Award(r) winners Yolanda Adams, Donnie McClurkin, and Hezekiah Walker among many more!

David leaves and we jump forward fifteen years, and becomes a very popular secular singing idol. We see his decadent life style where he wants for nothing. But then he gets a call that his father is ill and he heads back home. His father is played well by Clifton Powell. And by this time his best friend Charles is a self-centered egocentric man that is using the church to try and promote himself. The real story is to give us a look inside of black church society and at the same time it is a story of redemption for both of these young men. The gospel music does add to the film. It changes along with the times and what is transpiring within the church community.
So we have a low budget film about morality, faith, hope and recovery with some good original gospel music. The acting was not great and the plot line did have some holes for the supporting cast. But the story line of the main character is engaging and entertaining. So as other have said, just sit back and enjoy this simple tale.
As a huge fan of the The Wire I expected another brilliant performance from Idris Elba but it wasn't forthcoming. That's not really his fault, it's more to do with the script, which was stilted and full of cliches. The preaching wasn't even a realistic reflection of what you will see if you skim through the various US black preaches on the Christian TV channels.
Overall I found this film loooooooong, drawn out and boring, the only highlights were a couple of the musical numbers, in particular "Sing", and Yolanda Adams / Fred Hammond.
It's an excellent video, that Christians can enjoy, without cringing. This video is down to earth, and realistic, but at the same time is full of hope and redemption.
I don't know if a non-christian would be able to relate to what happens in this video, but the story is still worth seeing, and still entertaining.
