When you think about Blues and Soul music, one of the names that comes to mind is the legendary B.B. King. He is truly who I would consider the king of the blues. He has worked with many musical artists and has a catalog that is untouchable.

While I was online last night, I came across New Orleans actor, Wendell Piece. He dropped some news that got me majorly excited. He said he would be portraying B.B. King in an as yet untitled movie. I have to admit, I can't think of another actor who could knock this role out o the park.

After I posted this on my Facebook page, the outpouring of support was major.

I am happy to see a fellow Louisiana native is getting to bring to light one of the most respected and revered artists in the music game. There is not yet an official date for the release of the movie. However, they are preparing for it and that's all I need to know. Are you excited about this upcoming movie?
