Netflix and popular music producer Pharrell Williams are gearing up to release a new series that follows the making of a new gospel choir meant to “take gospel music to a new dimension.”
The unscripted project titled, “Voices of Fire,” premieres on Nov. 20 and follows Williams and gospel leaders as they embark on a quest to find undiscovered talent in Williams’ hometown of Hampton Roads, Virginia.
The series includes a very animated choir director Patrick Riddick and Williams’ uncle, Bishop Ezekiel Williams. Ezekiel Williams is the general overseer, pastor and founder of Faith World Ministries.
As reported by Billboard, the streaming service ordered Williams’ docuseries focusing on efforts to build “one of the world’s most inspiring gospel choirs.”
Although Williams is widely known as an Academy-nominated mainstream music producer and artist, he is returning to his childhood roots, which began in the Church.
