Pharrell Williams announced that his uncle, Bishop Ezekiel Williams, will seek out local talent to build a world-class gospel choir in the new unscripted Netflix series Voices of Fire.
Via Hollywood Reporter:
With the belief that diverse backstories can give their collective voice a greater meaning, the bishop and his team will search for people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds.
News of the series was announced at Essence Festival on Sunday by Williams and the bishop.
The series is scheduled to be released later this year. Via Rolling Stone:
Voices of Fire marks Netflix’s latest endeavor in music competition-like programming, following Rhythm + Flow with Chance the Rapper, Cardi B and T.I. A second season of that series will premiere in 2021 with the judges joined by Snoop Dogg, Quavo and DJ Khaled.
