Exclusive: Trevor Jackson Spills on “Let It Shine”

Vicki Stephens for CelebSecrets4U

Hey CelebSecrets4U readers,

Just yesterday we hung out with Trevor Jackson from “Let It Shine!” For those of you who don’t know, Trevor plays Kris McDuffy in the movie. “Let it Shine” is set in the world of hip-hop, rap and gospel music and expresses the importance of staying true to oneself. Geared towards kids, tweens and families, the story follows a shy, talented musician who pens romantic hip-hop verses only to stand idly by as they’re delivered to the girl of his dreams by a proxy, his best friend.

The inspiring story unfolds in Atlanta, Georgia, as Cyrus DeBarge (Tyler James Williams) and his best friend Kris McDuffy (Trevor Jackson) reunite with their childhood friend, teenage singing sensation Roxanne “Roxie” Andrews (CoCo Jones), whose music label is sponsoring a songwriting contest at a teen club. Cyrus, who writes music under the name “Truth,” crafts a heartfelt and contest-winning rhyme about Roxie but to his dismay, his work is mistakenly attributed to Kris. Lacking the confidence to step forward, Cyrus stands by while Kris not only takes credit for the lyrics but ultimately begins to win Roxanne’s heart too. Now, it’s up to the true poet to overcome self-doubt, seize the opportunity to reveal his authentic self and pursue his dreams. All the while, Cyrus must convince his preacher father that hip-hop music can have a positive message.

Check out our full interview with Trevor below. Will YOU be watching “Let It Shine” TOMORROW at 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel?
