Ciara is well known for her musical ambition and variety, but only true fans know of her forays into acting. In 2006, she appeared in the MTV television film All You’ve Got as Becca Watley. The movie chronicled the rivalry between two high school volleyball teams determined to make it to the top, making it easy for Ciara to bring her personality into the film.But Ciara’s got another film that’s been stuck in limbo for the past year with no word as to why. That movie is Mama, I Want to Sing!, based on the gospel stage musical that has been running off-Broadway. Ciara plays main character Amara Winter, the daughter of a famous gospel singer, who wants to create her own success in the secular musical world.The movie also features dramatic performances by other music stars, including Patti LaBelle and Marvin Winans. Notable actors Billy Zane (Titanic) and Hill Harper (CSI: NY) also have prominent roles. So with all this star power, why haven’t we gotten a chance to see it yet?The movie was finished in June 2009 and the official trailer was released in September. Though it was on the schedule for the 2009 Urbanworld Film Festival (an indie festival located in New York) but was cancelled due to technical difficulties. Since then, 9 months have gone by without more information. Fans are hankering for its release on sites like IMDB’s message boards. Maybe the release of Ciara’s album Basic Instinct in August will spur the filmmakers to get the movie out. Until then, we can only dream of Ciara’s performanceand of course, enjoy the roles she plays every time she gets out on the stage.
