I Wanna Introduce You To A Very Special Lady

I want you to meet Tina.

For the last few years I have been looking for talented writers and directors who I could help reach their dreams. Those who have the gift but haven't had the opportunity. Those who are gifted at storytelling. Well, in my search of many I have found a few that I'm working on helping, but there was one that is so special and so unique that she is ready now.  Her name is Tina Gordon Chism. She is a writer and a first-time director. She has a new movie coming out on May 10th that I'm presenting called PEEPLES. This movie is hysterical. She did such a great job. I'm so proud of her.

I must tell you, it makes me feel great to be able to help usher her to her dreams. I love seeing the underdog get their shot. If y'all didn't put me in this position I couldn't help her. So thank you. I feel that there is much more room in this business and this is my first attempt at opening this door for another writer-director. I'm excited about the possibility and I'm excited about her… a young African-American woman getting her first shot. This is really cool.

I want you to go out and support her movie, PEEPLES. It is so funny. Craig Robinson and Kerry Washington lead an all-star cast in this comedy and they will truly have you laughing out loud. I'm very proud of this movie and I'm very proud of Tina. I'm telling you, you won't be disappointed. The movie is great and Tina is very special. Let's show her some love, OK?

I'll be talking to you about it as we get a little closer.

PEEPLES in theaters May 10th. GO TINA!!!!

    That's great. My question is, how do people get the opportunity to reach out to you for things like this. I have been trying for years to reach out on behalf of my mom who desperately has been looking to live out her dream. She is now 61 and has written and directed several dramas. She often says, " how do people get the exposure to go further." She's constantly believing God and praying for that door to be opened and it hasn't yet. She really desecration that chance and i would love to help get her there. Help!

    Well done Tyler this is what all who make it out are called to do. We are to reach down and pull, those of our own who want it (You got to want it) out of the thorn bush. Yahweh is using you to help make a difference among our ppl. The enemy hates the fact that you are doing what your are doing...and that is helping to break the cycle of poverty among our ppl,(one brick at a time) by helping them to live their dreams. Best wishes to Tina and her upcoming movie "Peeples"..Thank you Mr.Perry on behalf of our ppl..thank you on behalf of those of all the Hebrew slaves who died in the hope of this day..THANK YOU.

    I like supporting your talents. I saw the movie, Temptation. I have not been a good girl in the past. But this movie put something on the brain, "honey". Its funny because I have been saying for years "that when you are married or committed, there will always be someone that will catch the eye, but it's the love that gives you the will to resist".
