Pharrell Williams is on a mission to create one of the most inspiring gospel choirs the world has ever seen.
The singer/producer has teamed with Netflix for the new docu-series, Voices of Fire, that will search his hometown of Hampton Roads, for the undiscovered talent of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds, per The Hollywood Reporter.
The reality series will follow Williams as he teams up with influential gospel leaders, including his uncle, Bishop Ezekiel Williams, to find the next great gospel singer.
The show is set to premiere on Netflix later in 2020.
Williams will executive produce the project along with Mimi Valdés for i am OTHER, Arthur Smith and Frank Sinton for A. Smith & Co. and Bianca Barnes-Williams.
News of the series comes days after it was announced that the “Happy” singer and BlackAF creator Kenya Barris are in talks with the streaming giant for a Juneteenth-inspired musical.
