Take an unforgettable journey with one of the most iconic African-American trailblazing singers in history, Mahalia Jackson. "Remember Me" is a soaring, musical look at the life of the renowned Gospel singer, her rise and challenges in the music industry, her unbreakable bond with Dr. Martin Luther King (Columbus Short), and her dramatic impact on the civil-rights movement. This moving and entertaining film gives an enlightening view of a celebrated singer trying to help break down the barriers of social injustice one note at a time during a pivotal time in our own history. A number of actresses portray Jackson at various stages of her life and career, but Grammy-nominated artist Ledisi truly sparkles as the singer in her adult years.
