Bresha Webb & Getenesh Berhe – leading ladies on OWN’s new holiday film, Song & Story: Amazing Grace, dishes to TheYBF.com about their new roles and why second chances are important, how late rapper DMX provides daily motivation and KiKi it up about the holiday cooking struggles.

Get into our chat inside…

Just in the time for the holidays, comes an uplifting story of women on the spiritual journeys to emotional triumph. Named after one of the most beloved hymns, Song & Story: Amazing Grace shines a light on the themes of challenge and triumph that ring true in the hymn.

The story centers on Tanner, portrayed by Bresha Webb, a talented artist battling tremendous obstacles who forms an unlikely friendship with Iris, portrayed by Getenesh Berhe, an optimistic store owner who guides Tanner towards the forgiveness of a painful past to unlock the strength she holds within herself. The two women will find out that their paths are intertwined, and a surprising connection is revealed.

And we love a good feel good movie around these parts, especially during this holiday season. 

YBF correspondent James Terrell got the chance to chop it up with leading ladies Bresha Webb and Getenesh Berhe about their roles and Bresha revealed what made her decide to take on a role we don’t normally see her portray. Her character, Tanner, hit rock bottom and was “living in her circumstances.” Thankfully, Getenesh’s character, Iris, stepped in and gave her “grace and second chances,” which helped Tanner find hope again.

More about the feel vibes in the film below:

As women, there are songs that touch our heart and soul – whether it’s a breakup track that literally hurts every time you hear it or a crunk, Hip Hop song that gets you energized and ready for the day. Bresha and Getenesh shared songs they like to listen to help them get through the day. 

Find out how late rapper DMX ties into the mix below: 

We’re in the thick of the holiday season and while the ladies love being around their families, it can turn into some hard work…in the kitchen.

The ladies laughed it up with James about their holiday cooking struggles and bonded over how our parents REALLY don’t want us in the kitchen to begin with.

Peep the clip below:

In real life, Bresha is living a love story fairytale. Over the summer, she got engaged to TV writer Nick Jones Jr. after he popped the at Wally’s Restaurant in Beverly Hills. The couple was set up by comedienne/“The Real” co-host Loni Love. Women are always asking about Ciara’s prayer for Russell Wilson. We wanted to know if Bresha knew what Nick’s prayer was for her!

Both ladies are booked and busy! They shared what they have coming down the pipeline and Bresha shared a Merry Liddle Chrismas manifestation for Kelly Rowland. A Merry Liddle Christmas Vacation?! Find out below:
