Disney Channel has shared with us these first look publicity image and stills from its upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, Let It Shine, starring Tyler James Williams, Coco Jones and Trevor Jackson. Let It Shine is a modern day teenaged take on the classic Cyrano de Bergerac story set against the worlds of gospel and hip-hop music.
The story follows 16-year-old Cyrus DeBarge (Tyler James Williams), an aspiring musician who has a gift for rhyme yet lacks the self-confidence to take the stage and, through his rap song, tell his longtime crush Roxanne Andrews (Coco Jones) how he feels about her. After he and his flighty best friend, Kris McDuffy (Trevor Jackson) enter a songwriting contest, Kris is mistakenly named the winner for a song Cyrus wrote. Fearful of being thrust into the spotlight, Cyrus panics and allows Kris to take credit for his heartfelt lyrics and soon he’s standing by as Roxanne begins to fall for Kris.
The Let It Shine soundtrack will feature 12 original songs by acclaimed music producers/songwriters/performers such as Rock Mafia, Grammy-winner Toby Gad and David Banner. It will premiere on Disney Channel in June 2012.
