The Pulse of Entertainment: Christopher
Martin Directs the Choir in The Sound of Christmas BET Plus Musical Film
by Dr. Eunice
9, 2022) - "I play brother Odom, a smart-aleck choir director," said actor Christopher Martin (House
of Payne, The Story of Nadia) about his new role in the BET Plus holiday musical film The Sound of Christmas starring
Ne-Yo and Serayah airing the month of December. "In his choir you have to come on time and ready to sing."
Christopher is not only a well-seasoned actor, but also an MC based in Atlanta. Known as The Fashion Plate MC, and I have
no clue what that means, Martin is best known for his role as the father of Jordan in the Will Packer film Little starring
Marsai Martin, Issa Rae, and Regina Hall. The Sound of Christmas also stars Draya Michele, Michael Anthony, Alijah Kai, Roxzane
T, Mims, Charlie Newell, Sarah Cool, Jennifer Sears, William Wilmoth, and Patrick Young, Jr.
all the month of December on BET Plus," he told me when asked. "To be booked on BET as an actor you know it will
air year after year after year."
The Sound of Christmas is a romance musical about love found during the holidays.
Directed by Booker T. Mattison and written by Mattison and Tiffany L. Warren.
"Serayah is a powerful young
actress," Christopher said when asked if he was able to work with Ne-Yo and Serayah. "I've seen her on ‘Empire'
and to meet her was great."
"(Ne-Yo) I did not have any lines with him, but he was in the church with
me," Martin continued. "He was on the set. I had 10-15-minute conversation with him. He is a super-cool dude. I
told him he has the clubs pumping. We talked about acting. It was cool, the biggest star asking for my advice...seeking knowledge."
Christopher Martin is such an active actor; he is currently starring as DJ Gravy
on Bounce TV's "Finding Happy" series starring B. Simone and Kim Coles. His first romantic project was an indie
film All That Matters as Jay an insurance adjuster playing on Amazon Prime, Turner Classic Movies and Vimeo on Demand. Acting
credits also includes Bigger and "Homicide Hunter."
"As an African-American male, all of us were
in the church choir," he laughed when talking about where he draws from for his role as a choir director. "After
two years in the church choir, the director told my mother I think your son should do sports. I pull from that. If a kid's
voice was off, his head would turn." www.TheFashionPlate.webs.com www.BET.plus
