Saving Grace: John & Aventer Gray

John Gray never wanted to be a pastor. He couldn’t relate to them and felt they were corny. Instead he felt better suited to be an attorney—even an R&B singer or comedian. He ultimately settled on the latter, releasing two CDs and touring with Kirk Franklin, DC Talk, Out of Eden and The Katinas.

Saving Grace: Brian White

Brian White is not one to waste words. The film and television actor who has been paired on screen with powerhouse talents as Angela Bassett, Teraji P. Henson, Tyler Perry and Kerry Washington says he governs about every facet of his life with two defining core values: “honesty and integrity.”

Having played opposite Henson in the 2009 film I Can Do Bad All by Myself, White, 41, hasn’t done too bad establishing himself in Hollywood. His filmography lists key roles in movies such as: The Family Stone, Daddy’s Little Girl, Stomp the Yard, Mr. 3000 which starred the late Bernie Mac, among others. Televison watchers will likely remember White from the UPN sitcom Moesha, or his more recent roles in Chicago Fire, Scandal, and TNT’s Men of A Certain Age.

Saving Grace: Rhyon Nicole Brown

Landing the lead in the Lifetime movie Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge and Michel’le wasn’t something that Rhyon Nicole Brown thought was in the cards for her. Upon getting the script, Brown felt that being able to replicate the infamous high-pitched voice of Michel’le would be a challenge that casting wouldn’t be able to overlook. Brown recalls thinking that this could possibly be the last audition she’d go to. Little did she know, playing the role of Michel’le would validate her range as an actor, reaffirming that this is exactly what she was meant to do.

“I couldn’t have planned this,” says Brown the role. “My steps were truly ordered. Playing Michel’le, I proved a lot to myself. I had to step so far out of myself to play her.”
