Detroit pastor plays lead role in new Tyler Perry film 'I can do bad all by myself

Detroit pastor and gospel singer Marvin Winans makes his film debut today as Pastor Brian in Tyler Perry's newest film "I Can Do Bad All by Myself."

The Detroit native and pastor of Perfecting Church on the city's east side is no stranger to fame as a singer, but is grappling with movie fame for the first time.

Detroit Free Press, Sept. 11: Winans attributes the ease with which he got into the role to his nearly lifelong history of singing and preaching. He grew up in a singing household. The tradition started with his parents, who met while singing, extends to himself and his Grammy-winning siblings and continues with his sons.

"What distinguishes a great singer from a singer is believability," he says. "So there is a bit of acting when you're a great singer, an effective singer.

"Winans has appeared in episodes of Perry's television shows "Meet the Browns" and "House of Payne," but this is first role in a feature film.

"I Can Do Bad All by Myself" stars Taraji P. Henson, Adam Rodriguez, Gladys Knight, Mary J. Blige and Perry as Madea.

Henson plays a self-centered women who suddenly has to take in her sister's children and is forced to reevaluate her lifestyle.

It opens today. Check out the trailer below:
