Toni Braxton’s Lifetime Movie “Twist Of Faith” Premieres Feb. 9
Toni Braxton is doing double-duty, as she sings and acts n the upcoming Lifetime movie, Twist of Faith.
Braxton plays a single mother, who is also the lead singer of a small gospel choir in Brent, Alabama. The movie revolves around rebirth, reinvention, and love.
Jacob Fisher (David Hirsh), an Orthodox Jewish Cantor and amateur songwriter who resides in Brooklyn, New York, witnesses the senseless murder of his wife and three children. Catatonic, Jacob walks out on his Jewish mourning ritual, leaving behind his Jewish garments, wallet and keys. Abandoning his identity, he wanders aimlessly, hoping somehow to understand his tragedy. Fortuitously, he lands in Brent, Alabama (population 2,500), where he is embraced by Nina (Toni Braxton), a single mother and the lead singer of a small gospel choir, her Uncle Moe (Myketi Williamson) and their gospel community who help his return to life while music brings Nina and Jacob together as they try to make sense of his past and their possible future.
The movie also stars Mykelti Williamson and David Julian Hirsh.
Twist of Faith premieres on Saturday, February 9, at 8pm ET.
