Music is huge part of any Christmas celebration and Gospel music reminds all of us of the reason for the season. Kirk Franklin’s A Gospel Christmas is filled with beautiful music that will melt the heart of any Scrooge!

Demetria McKinney who played Janine Payne on House of Payne and Chaz Lamar Shepherd who played John Hamilton on 7th Heaven will star in this premiere. Kirk Franklin’s A Gospel Christmas centers on Olivia, played by McKinney, as a young assistant pastor, who gets assigned to be a lead pastor at a new church a month before Christmas, she’s fearful she can’t manage the transition, including getting the choir ready to open the town’s annual Winter Jamboree. Banding together with her new congregation, Olivia discovers a new home for herself, and even finds a little Christmas romance along the way!

Kirk Franklin’s A Gospel Christmas will premiere on Saturday, December 4 at 8pm ET on Lifetime®.
