Even if you’re ambivalent about gospel music, you should see “Joyful Noise” just to watch Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton in a food fight. Parton talks with Bob about the film, her career in music, and her philanthropy. Her Imagination Library provides free books to children across the United States and in several foreign countries.
Plenty of people are anything but ambivalent about gospel music, if the sales charts are any indication. The “Joyful Noise” soundtrack is a bestseller already. Mervyn Warren was the arranger and producer for that soundtrack. You can follow him on Twitter here.
