Actress Dawnn Lewis, best known as Julissa on “A Different World” will soon be a preacher’s wife; on-screen that is. Lewis who has been quietly keeping busy with voice over work in multiple television roles, will be on-screen in the Disney Channel movie “Let it Shine” next month!
“Let It Shine” is a gospel-themed musical that also stars Tyler James Williams (“Everybody Hates Chris”) as a shy, talented musician who writes romantic rap verses for the girl of his dreams, only to see his best friend deliver them to her – and reap the benefits. Lewis plays his mom as well as the first lady of a small Baptist church in Atlanta where the pastor is played by Courtney B. Vance.
“Let it Shine” premieres June 15th at 8 p.m. on the Disney Channel. See trailer below.
