Business Kingdom I’m in the messy TV production business, and I’m here for it. The gospel drama, now streaming on BET+, has a compelling drama panel: murder, blackmail, strippers, sex scandals, dramatic slaps, murder soundtrack and Michael Beach are trifles.
The show follows Denita Jordan (played by legendary gospel singer Yolanda Adams), the Queen of Gospel Music at First Kingdom Church and Kingdom Records in Atlanta. Despite her many successes, her company is on the verge of financial ruin and her latest album isn’t raising enough money to keep it alive. She needs a hit, index.
While the entire season is available to stream, we’ll give you a recap of the first four episodes, which you can score in the poll below.
HIGHLIGHTS | Rbel (Serayah) is a stripper at the Vivide Gentlemen’s Club with her best friend Dani (Shuford Marie), who was shot down by an unknown assailant with a colored car. black. Rbel honored her friend in her memorial by singing a gospel song (with the help of the choir) and the video was posted. Spread.
She attracts the attention of Taj (Chaundre A. Hall-Broomfield), Denita’s son and Head of A&R at Kingdom Records, who wants to sign her. However, with her unclear background, Denita quickly put an end to that. Taj truly believes in her talent and approaches Caesar (Michael Jai White) to sign her to his developmental label, Redeeming Records.
Lover’s QUARREL | Caesar has the main beef with Denita, and for good reason. They dated before she married Bishop Calvin Jordan (Michael Beach), and things got serious. But then she got pregnant, had a secret abortion, and cut him out of her life. Worse, she removed his songwriting and production work from her album, A moment from glory, has been a great success. Her star rose while he faded into the background, and now he’s battling her on multiple fronts for that bit of glory.
First, he filed an order for the album, temporarily banning her from performing her most popular songs on a tour that was supposed to save Kingdom Records. He has proof that he wrote and produced that album in the form of a letter from Denita, stating that fact. He’s also doing his best to make Rbel a big star. Although Rbel opposes his efforts to change his image, she quit her job at Vivide and is focusing on building her career.
DARK PAST | Rbel still carries with him the pain of his childhood when he found his mother Raven dead in the bathtub. Raven is also a gospel singer who worked with Caesar and is on the way to becoming a big star. However, Denita was threatened by her and did all she could to stifle Raven’s career. Caesar vowed never to let that happen again, even convincing Rbel to re-record one of her mother’s songs.
A DIRTY BISHOP | If Michael Beach is going to do one thing, it’s play a man you love to hate. Calvin was married to Denita, but he dipped in various pots of honey, including Dani’s, before she died. Rbel found a drive with video accusing him and Dani in a hotel room she gave the police – but not before she was attacked in her private apartment by a masked assailant looking for that evidence.
Calvin looks like an exact suspect for the murder, especially when a vehicle registered with Kingdom Records goes missing and is later found burned (along with any possible DNA evidence). yes). Trying his best not to get caught, he calls owner Vivide Dex (Sam Malone) to make sure there are no videos of him at the club and asks his friend, the sheriff, to know. any updates on the incident. The sheriff said they have a suspect and will make an arrest soon, but did not disclose Who they went around.
I mentioned that Calvin is also sleeping with Sasha (Tamar Braxton), who works for Kingdom Records? This man hooked up with her in a dressing room while his wife was nearby in the same building rehearsing for her tour. The honey.
DENITA’S BAD DREAMS | Denita’s rotten deeds are seeping into her dreams, and as a result she has had a number of nightmares. Deacon D’Wayne (Kirk Franklin) offered some interesting interpretations: The spotlight moving and leaving her in the dark symbolizes God’s anointing, which no longer falls on her. again. The black bird was the one with whom she had shared God’s faith, who was no longer there, but they had left their ruins in the form of feathers.
Knowing that Rbel is Raven’s daughter, she need to represents feathers, while Raven is a black bird. It’s correct?
WOES FAMILY | Denita and Calvin’s daughter CJ suffered from depression after her seventh miscarriage. When she told her father she needed help, his answer was to pray with her. But prayer alone didn’t work, so she reached out to a church counselor, and it seemed to help.
Taj’s championing of Rbel didn’t sit well with his mother, who promptly fired him. His girlfriend Essence (La’Myia Good) quickly hires him to produce her sexually suggestive song “gospel”, which he is Not a fan.
She’s also been trying to have sex with him – they’ve been together for three months – but Taj has taken the plunge and is single for the last few years. However, after nearly kissing Rbel, those principles vanished like Party City paper plates under a summer BBQ. Episode 4 ends with him rushing home and hugging Essence white couch. Serious? Not even put a towel?
