HOLLYWOOD RED CARPET.

HI THERE.

WELCOME TO "STUDIO 5,"

COMING TO YOU THIS WEEK

FROM LOS ANGELES,

CALIFORNIA.

THE CITY IS THERE IN THE

BACKGROUND.

IT HAS JUST CELEBRATED THE

BIGGEST NIGHT IN MUSIC, SO

IT IS THE PERFECT PLACE

FOR US TO BRING YOU THE

SHOW THIS WEEK.

LET'S GET STARTED WITH THE

TOP FIVE FROM "STUDIO 5."

> AT NUMBER FIVE...

* AMAZING GRACE

SOUL RETIRES.

BORN IN MEMPHIS, RAISED

HARD ROAD THAT IS THE

AMERICAN DREAM.

Efrem: FRANKLIN TURNS

75 NEXT MONTH.

*

Efrem: AND SHE IS

COLLABORATING WITH

LONG-TIME FRIEND STEVIE

WONDER TO PRODUCE HER

FINAL ALBUM.

STRONG IS BORN FROM THE

OBSTACLES THAT WE

OVERCOME.

PAIN IS INEVITABLE.

SUFFERING IS ACTION.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FOUR...

I DON'T CARE ABOUT

HEARING YOU.

I WANT TO HEAR GOD THROUGH

YOU.

Efrem: QUEEN LATIFAH

TURNS TO THE BIBLE FOR HER

NEXT TV GIG, TEAMING UP

RELIGIOUS-THEMED DRAMA FOR

"THE SCROLL" PROMISES TO

RECREATE SOME OF THE

BIBLE'S MOST POPULAR

STORIES IN THE PRESENT

DAY.

> NOW NUMBER THREE...

THE WHIP OR THE

NAY-NAY.

THE WHIP.

Efrem: TIM TEBOW

COULD WHIP ACROSS 11

COUNTRIES WITH 75,000

PEOPLE ON FRIDAY.

AS HIS FOUNDATION HOSTED

AN UNFORGETTABLE PROM

NIGHT FOR CHILDREN WITH

SPECIAL NEEDS.

IT'S CALLED "NIGHT TO

SHINE."

I FEEL LIKE A REGULAR

PERSON, NOT A

SPECIAL-NEEDS PERSON.

Efrem: THIS IS THE

PROM'S SECOND YEAR, AND

TIM TEBOW PERSONALLY

ATTENDED EVENTS IN HAITI,

FLORIDA, AND ARKANSAS.

A LOT OF TIMES THEY

HEAR NO.

THAT'S A PRETTY COMMON

WORD THAT THEY HEAR.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

TWO...

THE GRAMMY GOES TO JOEY

AND RORY, "HYMNS."

Efrem: FOR BEST ROOTS

GOSPEL ALBUM.

HIS LAST RECORDING WITH

HIS LATE WIFE, JOEY.

MY WIFE'S DREAM WAS TO

MAKE A HYMNS ALBUM, PRETTY

MUCH HER WHOLE LIFE.

SHE DIDN'T HAVE A CHANCE

TO DO IT UNTIL SHE WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH STAGE FOUR

CANCER.

Efrem: PAMELA MANN

TOOK HOME THE PRIZE FOR

BEST GOSPEL ARTIST.

AND THE GRAMMY GOES TO

CHANCE THE RAPPER.

Efrem: CHANCE HONORED

GOD IN HIS ACCEPTANCE.

GLORY BE TO GOD.

[APPLAUSE]

AND I CLAIM THIS

VICTORY IN THE NAME OF THE

LORD.

GLORY BE TO GOD.

I CLAIM THE VICTORY IN THE

MANN AND KIRK FRANKFURT.

*

Efrem: AT NUMBER

ONE...THE 25th ANNUAL

MOVIE GUIDES AWARDS,

CELEBRATING FAMILY

ENTERTAINMENT WITH HONORS

THIS YEAR FOR CBN FOUNDER

DR. PAT ROBERTSON FOR

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT.

Pat: IT'S A GREAT

HONOR.

AND I REALLY THINK THE

CREDIT BELONGS TO MEDIA --

THE MOVIE GUYS.

THEY DO SUCH A SUPERB JOB.

IT IS A THRILL FOR ME TO

BE PART OF THIS

CELEBRATION.

Efrem: CBN'S

DOCUMENTARY POCAHONTAS IS

ALSO NOMINATED FOR TWO

MOVIE-GUIDE AWARDS.

IT WAS ORIGINALLY AN

ASSIGNMENT FROM GORDON

THAT MUSHROOMED INTO A

30-MINUTE DOCUMENTARY.

I ALWAYS PRAY BEFORE I DO

A STORY THAT GOD WILL TAKE

CONTROL OF IT, AND HE DID.

Efrem: AND THOSE ARE

YOUR TOP FIVE FROM "STUDIO

5" FOR THE WEEK.

> COMING TO YOU FROM

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA,

THE CITY THAT JUST

CELEBRATED THE BIGGEST

NIGHT IN MUSIC, YOU KNOW

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

GRAMMYS.

AMONG THE CONTENDERS FOR

THIS YEAR'S GRAMMY AWARDS,

THE DUO FOR "KING AND

COUNTRY."

BUT EVEN BEFORE THE AWARDS

CEREMONY, THEY ALREADY HAD

A GRAMMY ON THEIR SHELF,

AND THEY'RE SITTING DOWN

FOR US FOR HIS WEEK'S

"STUDIO 5" INTERVIEW.

* INCOMPARABLE, YOU'RE

BEAUTIFUL *

* I SEE IT ALL IN YOU

* OH, SO PRICELESS

Efrem: "PRICELESS,"

WHAT INSPIRED YOUR

INVOLVEMENT IN THIS

PROJECT?

NO LUCK, HUH?

DID I DO WHAT NEEDED TO

BE DONE?

THE GIRLS, WHERE ARE

YOU TAKING THEM?

NOT YOUR PROBLEM.

WE WENT TO OUR BROTHER,

BEN, AND HE'S A

FILM-MAKER.

AND WE SAID, HEY -- I

DON'T THINK WE KNEW WHAT

WE WERE ASKING AT THE

TIME, AS OFTEN YOU DON'T

WHEN YOU START A NEW

VENTURE.

WE SAID, LOOK, THIS HAS

REALLY RESONATED WITH OUR

AUDIENCE.

WHAT ABOUT TAKING THIS

MESSAGE TO THE SILVER

SCREEN.

Efrem: WOW.

AND YOU THE EXECUTIVE

PRODUCER AND YOU ACTING?

YEAH.

YEAH.

IT DEFINITELY WAS A

FAMILY AFFAIR, WITH OUR

OLDER BROTHER DIRECTING

IT, I'M BEING ONE OF THE

PRODUCERS, AND JOEL

SAYING, I WANT TO LEARN

THE AMERICAN A ACCENT AND I

WANT TO ACT AND BE IN THIS

FILM.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

COMPLICATED PROJECTS I

EVER WORKED ON.

BUT I CAN ONLY IMAGINE

WHAT HE IS THINKING.

Efrem: IT WAS A

PRETTY GRITTY ROLE FOR

YOU, TOO.

YEAH, IT WAS.

THERE IS A LITTLE VOICE

TELLING YOU TO STAY, BUT

THERE IS A LARGER HAND AT

PLAY HERE AND YOU MIGHT

WANT TO LISTEN TO THAT

VOICE.

THESE GIRLS DON'T

BELONG TO YOU.

THOSE GIRLS DON'T

BELONG TO ANYONE.

YOU GO DOWN THIS ROAD

AND YOU CAN'T GO BACK TO A

NORMAL LIFE AGAIN.

THERE ARE SOME BAD

DUDES WHO ARE GOING TO

KILL YOU.

THE REASON WE WANTED

JAMES TO BE AN AMERICAN,

WE WANTED HIM TO BE A

NORMAL PERSON WHO IS IN

THIS GREAT COUNTRY, WHO

HAD JUST A TRAGIC

INCIDENT.

HE LOST HIS WIFE IN AN

ACCIDENT.

AND HOW SO QUICKLY LIFE

CAN CHANGE, AND ALSO SO

QUICKLY HOW YOU CAN FIND

YOURSELF IN THESE SORT OF

DEPLORABLE SCENARIOS.

Efrem: SITTING HERE

WITH YOU AND YOU SAYING

YOU GUYS PARTNERED WITH LE

CRAE.

*

* JOINING ALL THE

MESSENGERS *

WE SENT HIM THE TRACKS.

LE CRAE PUT THE RAP ON IT,

AND IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY.

I MET HIM AFTER THE

SONG WAS DONE.

AFTER THE ALBUM WAS

OUT.

SO EVERYBODY WOULD COME

UP AND SAY, HOW WAS IT

HANGING OUT WITH YOUR MAN,

LE CRAE, AND I WAS, LIKE,

AFTER THE FACT, IT WAS

GREAT.

WE LOVE WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

ONE OF THE GUYS AT K.B. --

HE IS A GREAT FRIEND.

IN FACT, I REMEMBER WELL,

IT WAS RIGHT AROUND

INDEPENDENCE DAY, WHEN

THAT WEEK, AS FAR AS THE

ISSUES OF THE SHOOTINGS

AND THE -- YOU KNOW, IT

WAS JUST HORRIFIC.

AND IT WAS A FRIDAY.

WE HAD A SHOW TOGETHER,

K.B. AND US, AND HE WAS

JOINING US ON STAGE.

AND WE HAD PROBABLY A

TWO-HOUR CONVERSATION OF

JUST REALLY GETTING DOWN.

AS AUSTRALIANS COMING INTO

THIS, BUT GETTING DOWN TO

THE HEARTBEAT OF WHAT THIS

IS.

AND DIFFERENT SKIN COLORS

AND DIFFERENT WALKS OF

LIFE.

AND THAT WAS THE BEAUTY OF

IT.

WE ALL CAME TOGETHER.

AND WE HAVE TO START --

WHAT COMES ALONG WITH

DIVERSITIY IS YOU HAVE TO

BE DELIBERATE IN SEEKING

UNDERSTANDING.

* EVERY WRONG YOU RIGHT

* OH, SO PRICELESS

Efrem: IF YOU MISSED

THE FILM IN THE THEATERS,

THE GOOD NEWS IS

"PRICELESS" IS AVAILABLE

ON D.V.D. AND FOR DIGITAL

DOWNLOADS.

> STILL AHEAD ON "STUDIO

5"...

I KNOW I LOVE YOU.

Efrem: A REAL LIFE

ROMEO AND JULIET STORY OF

FORBIDDEN ROMANCE.

THE AMAZING THING ABOUT

RUTH'S STORY, EVEN THOUGH

THERE IS A POLITICAL

ELEMENT TO IT, THE BULK OF

WHAT WE'RE TRULY

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "STUDIO 5."

VALENTINE'S DAY IS ALL

ABOUT LOVE.

BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THAT

LOVE IS FORBIDDEN?

THAT'S THE SUBJECT OF A

GREAT MOVIE OUT IN

THEATERS RIGHT NOW.

IT IS CALLED "A UNITED

KINGDOM."

AND IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN

IT, HERE IS YOUR FIRST

LOOK.

WE WILL NOT BE FIGHTING

FOR SEGREGATION.

WE SHOULD BE FIGHTING FOR

EQUALITY.

THAT IS WHERE WE SHOULD BE

FOCUSING OUR MINDS ON.

NOT ON THE WIFE I HAVE

CHOSEN, WHO MEANS YOU NO

HARM.

WHO'S ONLY APPARENT CRIME

HAS BEEN TO FALL IN LOVE

WITH ME.

AND MINE, TO FALL IN LOVE

WITH HER.

THE FILM TELLS A

BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY THAT

INSPIRED A NATION.

ROBIN, THERE IS AN

AFRICA THAT DOESN'T HAVE

TO BE ABOUT BLACK OR WHITE

EXCLUSION.

IT CAN BE ABOUT UNITY AND

EQUALITY.

EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A

POLITICAL ELEMENT TO

RUTH'S STORY, THE BULK OF

WHAT WE'RE TRULY

DISCUSSING HERE IS THE

POWER OF LOVE.

YOU HAVE LOTS TO THINK

ABOUT.

AND HOW MUCH HE IS

PREPARED TO SACRIFICE AND

GIVE AND FIGHT FOR THAT

LOVE TO BE ALLOWED TO

LIVE.

I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU.

AND, YES, YES...

THE AMAZING THING ABOUT

RUTH, TO ME THEY EMBODY

THE BEST OF WHAT LOVE IS.

LOVE IS SACRIFICE.

VERY PLEASED TO MEET

YOU, SIR.

I WILL SPEAK TO MY

NEPHEW ALONE.

THIS BLACK MAN AND THIS

WHITE WOMAN GETTING

MARRIED, EVOKES PREJUDICES

WITHIN BLACK PEOPLE AND

WHITE PEOPLE, POOR PEOPLE

AND RICH PEOPLE,

POLITICIANS AND THE

PUBLIC.

A WHITE WOMAN BY YOUR

SIDE, ARE YOU TRYING TO

TEAR US APART?

LOOK AT THEM.

I MEAN YOU NO HARM.

WHAT YOU SAW IS WHAT

HAPPENS ONCE THEY GET

TOGETHER, AND THE MIGHT OF

AN EMPIRE IS AGAINST THEM.

AND HOW THEY PROVE THAT

THEIR MIGHT WAS STRONGER.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO MARRY

THE LEADER OF AN AFRICAN

NATION, WILL BE

RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

DOWNFALL OF THE BRITISH

EMPIRE.

THESE TWO PEOPLE FALL

IN LOVE IN SUCH A

COMMITTED AND REAL AND

TRUE WAY THAT THEY CAN

WITHSTAND THESE POLITICAL

BATTLES THEY FIND

THEMSELVES FACING.

THERE IS, OF COURSE,

YOUR TRIBAL COUNCIL, SO

YOUR PEOPLE WILL HAVE SOME

SORT OF SAY IN THE RUNNING

OF YOUR AFFAIRS.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

HIT ME, APART FROM THE

FACT THAT IT IS OBVIOUSLY

A GREAT LOVE STORY, WAS

THE FACT THAT IT WAS A

STORY OF AFRICAN

INDEPENDENCE.

THE LEGACY OF THEIR

MARRIAGE LIVES ON.

THE CURRENT PRESIDENTS OF

BOTSWANA IS RUTH AND HIS

SON.

THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF

ARRIVED ONSET.

HE SAW DAVID DRESSED AS

HIS FATHER AND LATER RUTH

DRESSED AS HIS MOTHER.

I COULD SEE IN HIS EYES HE

WAS PRETTY AFFECTED BY

THAT, BUT HE KEPT HIS

COMPOSURE.

THERE IS SOMETHING SO

BEAUTIFUL ABOUT THE FULL

CIRCLE OF THAT.

SHE BEING THERE WHILE HE

WAS PRESIDENT.

IT WAS IN THAT MOMENT

THAT IT REALLY HIT ME THAT

THERE WAS THIS MAN, AND HE

WAS A TESTAMENT TO THE

COUPLE, AND HE IS A VERY

REAL LEGACY.

THEY ARE SO MUCH IN

LOVE, THAT NO ONE CAN

BREAK IT DOWN.

WHATEVER IS THROWN AT

THEM, THEY JUST SAY, WE'RE

IN LOVE.

WE'RE STAYING TOGETHER.

WHEN PEOPLE WATCH THE

FILM, WHETHER YOU'RE

MARRIED OR NOT, WHETHER

YOU'RE IN LOVE OR NOT, AND

WHETHER YOU BELIEVE IN

LOVE OR NOT, YOU WILL SEE

A FORM OF LOVE THAT IS

BOTH PURE AND TRUE.

AND THAT BEING LOVED

CAN SORT OF LEND YOU

SUPER-HUMAN STREN.

>STRENGTHEN.

THEY OFFERED A

BENCHMARK OF NOT ONLY WHO

WE ARE TODAY, BUT WHO WE

WERE YESTERDAY AND WHO WE

MIGHT WANT TO BECOME IN

THE FUTURE.

THAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT.

MY PRAYER IS THAT THE

WORLD WILL RECEIVE IT IN

THE SPIRIT IN WHICH IT IS

MADE, AND THAT IS THAT IT

IS A LOVE LETTER TO LOVE.

I AM GOING TO SERVE YOU

BECAUSE I LOVE MY PEOPLE.

I LOVE THIS LAND.

BUT I LOVE MY WIFE.

Efrem: THAT STORY IS

SET IN THE 1940s AND

BASED ON THE LIVES OF REAL

PEOPLE.

DAVID NOT ONLY STARS IN

THE FILM, BUT HE

PERSONALLY HAND PICKED

EVERY MEMBER OF THE TEAM,

FROM THE CAST TO THE CREW.

> STILL TO COME ON

"STUDIO 5"...

IT HAS BEEN IN MY HEART

FOR A WHILE.

SINCE THE TIME I READ IT,

IT IS SOMETHING THAT JUST

GAVE ME PEACE.

Efrem: A LOOK INSIDE

THE FAITH OF AN ALL-STAR

Efrem: WHAT DO YOU

HEAR?

YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF

ANTHONY HAMILTON.

THIS IS GRAMMY SEASON HERE

IN HOLLYWOOD, AND ANTHONY

HAMILTON IS WHAT IS

PLAYING IN MY EAR.

* I WASN'T LOOKING

* I WAS FINE ON MY OWN

TO COME AND GO AS I

PLEASE *

* YOU CAME AND TURNED IT

ALL AROUND *

Efrem: THAT SOULFUL

SOUND OF R & B'S ANTHONY

HAMILTON OFTEN SINGS A

PRAYER, GOD AND HEAVEN.

IT'S NO SURPRISE.

WE CAUGHT UP WITH THIS

BUSY FATHER OF SIX BOYS

HERE ON THE RED CARPET OF

THE AWARDS TO HONOR

INSPIRATIONAL

ENTERTAINMENT.

AND IN CASE YOU CAN'T

TELL, I AM A HUGE FAN.

NOT ONLY AM I A FATHER,

BUT I WANT TO SHOW SOME

INTEGRITY FOR MY COMMUNITY

AND MY PEOPLE.

AND COME OUT AND CELEBRATE

OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE LIKE

MINDS AND LIKE SPIRITS.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT.

* THERE ARE TIMES WHEN YOU

CAN'T SEEM TO FIND YOUR

WAY *

* GOD IS TALKING

Efrem: HAMILTON'S

HEART SHINES HERE ON

STAGE, SINGING HIS

GRAMMY-NOMINATED SINGLE

WITH PASTOR CHERY SHIRLEY

CAESAR.

I'VE BEEN ADOPTED, AND

LIFE HAD ITS WAY, BUT

WITHOUT FAITH, I WOULD

HAVE GIVEN UP, AND GOD

KNOWS WHERE I WOULD BE

NOW.

I DEFINITELY WOULDN'T BE

ON THIS RED CARPET.

* IT'S ALL RIGHT

* IT'S ALL RIGHT

* ALL RIGHT

* IT'S ALL RIGHT

Efrem: LOS ANGELES IS

HOME TO THE DODGERS AND

FIRST BASEMAN ADRIAN

GONZALES, A FIVE-TIME

ALL-STAR WINNER AND A

FOUR-TIME GOLDEN GLOVE

AWARD-WINNER.

HE IS SITTING DOWN WITH US

TO TALK ABOUT WHAT KEEPS

HIS FOCUS DURING THE LONG

BASEBALL SEASON.

HE IS THIS WEEK'S "FAITH

ON THE FIELD."

IT'S ABOUT PUTTING IN

THE WORK, AND BEING

PHYSICALLY PREPARED AND

MENTALLY PREPARED.

DOING EVERYTHING YOU CAN

ON THE PHYSICAL END OF IT,

WORKING IN THE CAGE,

UNDERSTANDING THE OPPOSING

PITCHER, ALL OF THOSE

THINGS AND THEN LETTING

THE GAME BE THE GAME.

THIS IS A GAME.

WE CAN COME OUT OF THE

GAME AND DO EVERYTHING,

BUT THERE IS GOING TO BE A

LOT OF SAILORS.

IT IS A LONG SEASON.

GOOD THINGS CAN HAPPEN,

BAD THINGS CAN HAPPEN, BUT

WHAT MATTERS IS HOW WE

RESPOND TO EVERY ASPECT OF

THE SITUATION IN THE GAME.

FOR ME IT IS ABOUT JUST

LETTING IT HAPPEN AND JUST

TRUSTING THE LORD.

EVERYBODY IS GOING TO

JUDGE ME BY THE STATISTICS

AT THE END OF THE DAY.

DO YOU DRIVE IN THE RUNS

AND STUFF?

THERE ARE GOING TO BE

TIMES WHEN YOU DON'T

PRODUCE, AND EVERYBODY IS

GOING TO COME OUT AND SAY,

WHAT HAPPENED?

WHY DIDN'T YOU PRODUCE?

THOSE ARE ALL THINGS WE

ARE GROOMED SINCE WE ARE

LITTLE KIDS TO COME

THROUGH THOSE SITUATIONS.

HUMAN NATURE IS TO FEAR

FAILURE.

IT HAS BEEN IN MY HEART

FOR A WHILE, SINCE THE

TIME I READ IT.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT JUST

GAVE ME PEACE.

IT SAYS, "THE LORD IS MY

LIFE AND MY SALVATION.

WHOM SHALL I FEAR?"

>THEREARE TIMES WHEN YOU'RE AT

THE PLATE AND THERE IS A

TOUGH MOMENT IN THE GAME.

YOU'RE STRUGGLING AND ALL

OF THESE THINGS ARE IN

YOUR HEAD.

I NEED TO GET AHEAD.

WHEN I LOOK AT THE VERSE,

IT IS JUST LIKE HEY, WAIT,

GOD IS IN CONTROL.

AND SO FOR ME IT IS ABOUT

TRUSTING IN JESUS AND JUST

ALLOWING HIM TO BE AT THE

CENTER OF YOUR THOUGHT

PROCESS.

IF YOU PUT YOUR PURPOSE IN

SOMETHING ON EARTH, YOU

PUT YOURSELF AS RISK OF

THAT PURPOSE OR THAT

FULFILLMENT NOT BEING MET.

IT CAN BE TAKEN AWAY FROM

YOU IN A HEARTBEAT.

SO YOU PUT YOUR PURPOSE ON

JESUS.

THAT WILL NEVER BE TAKEN

AWAY.

Efrem: UP NEXT ON

"STUDIO 5"...

I HATE TO INTERRUPT.

I'M SO SORRY.

SORRY?

I'M HIS WIFE.

Efrem: CHELSEA

CHRIS --

IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO

LEARN THE INDUSTRY OF

HOLLYWOOD AND FIND YOUR

PLACE INSIDE OF IT.

Efrem: AND WE ARE

JUST ABOUT OUT OF TIME FOR

THIS EDITION OF "STUDIO

5."

SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK AHEAD

TO WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON

FOR NEXT WEEK.

HERE IS A HINT: THERE IS

LOTS MORE MUSIC IN YOUR

FUTURE.

*

THE NAME -- WHAT'S

BEHIND THE NAME?

WE JUST -- THE PLACE

WHERE NORMAL, UNGUARDED,

REAL LIFE HAPPENS IS A

HOME, RIGHT, WHERE YOU

LEARN PATIENCE WITH YOUR

SPOUSE, KINDNESS, AND YOUR

KIDS.

THAT'S THE REAL STUFF.

THAT'S WHERE IT NEEDS TO

BURN THE BRIGHTEST.

Efrem: ONE OF YOUR

MORE POPULAR SONGS, "GOOD,

GOOD FATHER," DID YOU

WRITE THAT?

I'M ONE OF THE WRITERS,

YEAH.

* OH, I HEARD A THOUSAND

STORIES *

* OF WHAT THEY THINK

YOU'RE LIKE *

Efrem: AND "HOUSE

FIRES" IS JUST ONE STORY

FOR NEXT WEEK'S RUNDOWN.

AS FOR THE FINAL WORD FOR

THIS SHOW, HOLLYWOOD IS A

PLACE WHERE COUNTLESS

PEOPLE COME TO CLASS SOME

BIG DREAMS.

BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

THOSE DREAMS DIE.

ACTRESS CHELSEA CHRIS HAS

SOME ADVICE FOR YOU.

IF YOU'RE A CREATIVE

PERSON AND YOU'RE GOING

AFTER ACTING OR

FILM-MAKING OR MUSIC, YOU

WILL PROBABLY HAVE SOME

JOBS THAT YOU HATE.

I DID.

AND I THINK -- I THINK

THAT'S A PART OF IT.

YOU'RE GOING -- WITH ANY

JOB AND ANY CAREER, THERE

ARE GOING TO BE THINGS YOU

LOVE AND THINGS YOU DON'T

LIKE AS MUCH.

WHAT I LOVE SO MUCH ABOUT

BEING AN ACTOR IS

PINPOINTING THAT THING,

LIKE, WHAT DO YOU GIVE?

WHAT ARE YOU GIVING TO

PEOPLE?

THAT CAN CARRY YOU THROUGH

SOME PRETTY HARD TIMES.

IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO

LEARN THE INDUSTRY OF

HOLLYWOOD AND FIND YOUR

PLACE INSIDE OF IT.

AND MAYBE THAT NEVER

HAPPENS.

THERE IS NO GUARANTEES IN

ANY KIND OF CREATE SIEVE CREATIVE

ENDEAVOR.

I THINK YOU HAVE TO BE

BRAVE AND KNOW WHAT KIND

OF STORIES YOU WANT TO

TELL.

Efrem: AND REMEMBER

THIS: GOD CAN DREAM NEW

LIFE INTO A BIGGER DREAM

FOR YOU THAN YOU CAN DREAM

FOR YOURSELF.

THAT IS THE TIME WORD FOR

THIS EDITION OF "STUDIO

5."

UNTIL NEXT TIME, REACH OUT

AND TOUCH ME AT EFREM

GRAHAM ON Facebook,

TWITTER, AND INSTAGRAM

Facebook, TWITTER, AND

INSTAGRAM, AND COME BACK

AND SEE WHERE "STUDIO 5"
