Voices of Fire follows the uplifting journey of local singers in Pharrell’s hometown community of Hampton Roads, Va., where the hitmaker joins his uncle, Bishop Ezekiel Williams, and his team of gospel leaders to find undiscovered talent and build one of the world’s most inspiring gospel choirs.
“What if you were made for this? To withstand the storm, to beat the odds? What if believing in yourself is only the beginning?” Pharrell narrates in the teaser clip.
The 13-time Grammy winner first announced Voices of Fire, which he will executive-produce, at the virtual Essence Festival in July, when Netflix officially greenlit the project. The docuseries will be produced by A. Smith & Co. and i am OTHER. Executive producers include Pharrell and Mimi Valdés for i am OTHER and Arthur Smith and Frank Sinton for A. Smith & Co. Bianca Barnes-Williams will also executive produce.
