Born in New Orleans, Mahalia Jackson began singing at an early age and went on
to become one of the most revered gospel figures in U.S. history, melding her music with the civil rights movement. Her recording
of the song "Move on Up a Little Higher" sold millions of copies, skyrocketing her to international fame and gave
her the opportunity to perform at diverse settings including in front of a racially integrated audience at the prestigious
Carnegie Hall and at John F. Kennedy's inaugural ball. An active supporter of the Civil Rights Movement, Jackson sang at numerous
rallies, including the March on Washington in 1963 alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in hopes that her music would encourage
and inspire racial equality.
From Rock'n Robin Productions and Lincoln Square Productions, Mahalia is executive
produced by Robin Roberts and Linda Berman. Danielle Brooks and Kenny Leon are co-executive producers. Leon directs from a
script written by Bettina Gilois and Todd Kreidler. (Source: CR8 Agency)
