Pharrell Williams has been at the helm of many a Billboard bop, but now he’s gearing up to lend his midas touch to the Gospel sphere.
And he’ll be doing so in partnership with Netflix.
Full story below…
Williams – along with his uncle Bishop Ezekiel Williams – will headline ‘Voices Of Fire.’
Billed as an upbeat, feel-good show, it will see the pair piece together “one of the world’s most inspiring Gospel choirs.”
Word is that Williams’ hometown of Hampton Roads, VA will serve as the base of the search – which is open to all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
Pharrell and Bishop Ezekiel broke the news during a virtual press event for the Essence Festival, which is being held online this year due to the on-going global health crisis.
The show adds to the super-producer’s growing TV portfolio; a list that includes a judging stint on ‘The Voice.’
