Can we get an amen?!
Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said of the special that will air on Easter Sunday:
“We’re all overjoyed to have world-class musical artist and producer John Legend starring as Jesus. This score demands a singer with an amazing range and an actor with great depth, and there isn’t anyone better to bring this story to a new audience. His casting is also groundbreaking as the traditional image of Christ will be seen in a new way.”
