STORYLINE :
Germany, May 1945—the twilight of World War II. On a final mission deep in the Harz mountains, a U.S. tank destroyer crew discovers a pocket of resistant Germans, including three infamous Panzer tanks, preparing to ambush Allied supply trucks.
Before the war, Sgt. Jesse Owens was a product of segregation and racial discrimination, forced by the law to ride in the back of the bus and disenfranchised from the political process. As the Germans bear down on the Americans, Owens fights the Axis powers for a freedom he and his fellow African American soldiers have never felt.

With a deadly game of cat and mouse unfolding, Owens and his predominantly white M18 Hellcat crew find themselves outmanned and outgunned by the German Panzer tanks. Several in Owens’ crew are reluctant to put their faith in a black tank commander despite their dire circumstances. With tension and fear beginning to manifest, Owens knows they must put aside their differences to stop the enemy. Knowing that a victory over the Nazis means a victory for racial justice, Owens and his men find a way to work together to save hundreds of lives in a desperate battle against the greatest odds they have ever faced.
"FREEDOM IS WORTH THE FIGHT"
WATCH IN THEATERS FRIDAY AUGUST 15TH 2014!!
I am excited to partner with the SAINTS AND SOLDIERS franchise to make this music video.
In the movie, there is a scene where some of the soldiers begin singing "Danny Boy", One of the directors suggested I try my hand at coming up with an "Africanized" version of Danny Boy, so those who know me well will know I jump at a chance to put an african twist on any song!!
I did feel at first that doing this version would be a little out of place as the movie is set in WWII, but because I play an African American soldier in the movie, I felt it would a nice nod to his African roots, and those of the other black soldiers in the movie.
