The latest video from Tamela Mann, for her single “The Master Plan,” premiered on BET’s Video Gospel yesterday. I was probably still asleep when it aired, recovering from Stellar weekend, but thank God for YouTube!
Check it out:
For me, the video wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. When it opened, it felt more like a stage play than a music video (shout-out to Kim Fields in the hospital scene!). There was a bit of over-acting all around, which sort of made things a bit corny.
THAT SAID, Tamela looked like a gazillion dollars (as always)– she was dressed well and they used some great shots of her. I loved the scenes that she was in (the street she stood on, with the piano, seems to be the same street from Tyler Perry’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” movie– y’know, with Marvin Winans’ church in the background).
All in all, it’s a good effort and definitely serves its purpose– she conveys the message using two storylines and multiple shots of heartfelt performances.
Whatd’ya think of the video???
