Skye Townsend, Kendall Amyre Ferguson, and a plethora of other teens may get the opportunity to make their mark in Hollywood. A new film called Get the Pearls, a 1990s-themed musical, may feature the young entertainers in starring roles.
Townsend already has a YouTube following of 2.5 million viewers and is known for her singing abilities. The young entertainer is currently being considered for the part of “Sonya,” a young female singer who is a member of the famous Diamondz ‘N Da Ruff hip-hop band.
Kendall Ferguson is also a talented actress and singer who is set to portray “Candy,” a mean girl who rivals with Sonya’s singing group. Prior to being considered for the feature film, Kendall portrayed “Agnes Peabody” on Clue. The young talent recently signed with Atlantic Records and is working on a new album.
Get the Pearls is written by former E! news producer Carlton Jordan. He states, “This film will be filled with the next generation of teen stars and musicians, along with cameos from your favorite 90’s era legends! I am very much in love with the idea that this project aims to create a group of black teen queens and heartthrobs, maybe our very own ‘Breakfast Club!’”
