The Grammy-winning artist takes the main role as Birdie Moore, a reality TV star, which her life starts to unravel after learning a host of family secrets.  One highlight in the film is that Mills and another Grammy winner, Erica Campbell, get to put their singing abilities on display.  Viewers will be in for a treat.

Lifetime has been producing movies regarding anthology in a seven-part series titled, Seven Deadly Sins.  The movie series is inspired by the novels of Victoria Christopher Murray and executive produced by Bishop T.D. Jakes.  Prior to Pride, greed, envy, wrath, and lust have been the main topics of the series.


This is the first time the “Never Knew Love Like This Before” singer has had the lead role in a television movie.  Her first time acting was as Dorothy in the original “The Wiz” on Broadway.  Mills says she took the role of Birdie Moore because Birdie and she have gone through similar experiences in life.

“I couldn’t relate to the reality thing because I don’t like reality TV.  But I could relate to what was going on personally.  I could definitely relate to being a mother loving her son so much that she wanted to cover up whatever he was doing.  I have a son who is 22 years old and he cons me every day.”
