      83% Tomatometer 6 Reviews A spirited celebration of 83-year-old Lena Mae Perry and her legendary North Carolina gospel group The Branchettes. The film documents The Branchettes as they record their first, fully live album. Through shared prayer, laughter, hardship and praise, this "church gospel noisy crew" demonstrates that music, like faith, ain't nothing without some fire inside.

      Glenn Kenny New York Times As self-promotional ventures go, this is an effort of integrity and good will, and packs in a lot of spirited music that more or less sells itself. Jun 16, 2022 Full Review Lovia Gyarkye Hollywood Reporter The power of gospel music comes alive here, and the doc's subjects, the practitioners of this fervent form, keep it engaging. Nov 20, 2021 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue As the film examines Perry’s commitment to her faith through her powerhouse voice, there might not be any groundbreaking insight, but it shines an inspirational spotlight. Jul 8, 2022 Full Review Pat Padua Spectrum Culture Lena Mae Perry’s resilience and beaming personality, as well as the blues-tinged music she’s been making for nearly half a century, make it hard to resist her story. And her long life... makes a strong case for her message as well. Rated: 80/100 Jul 5, 2022 Full Review Stacey Yvonne Black Girl Nerds Perry’s faith is a throughline in the documentary, but even more telling is Perry’s effect on those around her. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 18, 2022 Full Review Cameron Meier MeierMovies.com The film struggles to find a unique or fittingly impactful way of telling of Perry's story. Rated: 1.25/5 Mar 29, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
