Earlier this year it was announced that Oscar Award-winner Jamie Foxx signed on in association with his FoxxKing Entertainment to executive produce the music documentary, 'Thunder Soul.'
Directed by Mark Landsman, the docu-pic follows the alumni from Houston's acclaimed 1970's Kashmere High School Stage Band as they regroup 35 years later for a tribute concert in honor of their band leader, Conrad "Prof" Johnson. The 92-year-old was responsible for breaking the color barrier and transforming the school's struggling jazz band into a world-class funk powerhouse in the early 1970s.
Since its 2010 debut at the SXSW Film Festival, the film has scored multiple accolades and nominations from various independent film festivals, including 'Best Documentary Feature' at the 2010 Indie Memphis Film Festival.
"I can't wait to share 'Thunder Soul' with the world so that everyone can enjoy this one of a kind experience," Foxx told 'The Hollywood Reporter' in February. "It's such an entertaining and inspirational story that touches your soul and awakens the human spirit in the way that only love and the power of music can."
Below check out an exclusive look at the 'Thunder Soul' trailer before it hits theaters this weekend during the opening of 'Madea's Big Happy Family.'
