The Passion is a live 2-hour musical event that will air Palm Sunday, March 20th 2016 on FOX. Soundtrack by executive producers Adam Anders and Peer Astrom.
THE PASSION tells the 2000-year-old story of the last hours of Jesus Christ’s life on earth through passages from the Bible and a variety of popular music, sung by the cast and arranged specifically for this event by executive producer and hit music producer Adam Anders (“Glee,” “Rock of Ages”). Set in modern day, the event will follow the dramatic and inspirational story of Jesus of Nazareth, as he presides over the Last Supper, and then is betrayed by Judas, put on trial by Pontius Pilate, convicted, crucified and resurrected. This epic event will broadcast live from some of New Orleans’ most iconic locations, while featuring a procession of hundreds of people carrying a 20-foot, illuminated cross from outside the Superdome to the live stage at Woldenberg Park on the banks of the Mississippi River.
The cast includes host Tyler Perry, Trisha Yearwood, Seal, Chris Daughtry, Jencarlos Canela and Prince Royce with special appearances by Yolanda Adams, Michael W. Smith and Shane Harper.
