The trailer for Kasi LemmonsBlack Nativity premiered earlier tonight during the BET Awards.  The musical is about a single Baltimore mother (Jennifer Hudson) who sends her son Langston (newcomer Jacob Latimore) to stay with her estranged parents (Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett) in New York City during the holidays.  While there, Langston falls asleep in the Chistmas Eve sermon and dreams of a “Times Square Bethlehem.”  Judging by the trailer, this could be a solid holiday hit.  I’ve been eagerly anticipating Lemmons follow-up to Talk to Me, and I really like what I’m seeing in this trailer when it comes to taking holiday music like “Silent Night” and giving it a new R&B spin.  I’m eager to find out what Lemmons has done with the rest of the songs in the movie and how she’s filmed them.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Tyrese Gibson, Nasir Jones, and Mary J. BligeBlack Nativity opens November 27th.
