Netflix and Pharrell Williams are teaming up for a new gospel series, titled “Voices of Fire.”
The show will follow Williams’ uncle, Bishop Ezekiel Williams, a well-respected musician in the area of Hampton Roads, Viriginia.
The bishop and his core team of gospel leaders will search for undiscovered talent, with the belief that diverse backstories can give their collective voice a greater meaning. The group will search for people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds.
The project is set to premiere on Netflix later in 2020.
Williams and his uncle announced news of the series during a conversation on Sunday at the Essence Festival.
