ON "STUDIO 5," FROM THE

WRESTLING RING...

WELCOME TO C.F.S. M.,

CARS FOR SINGLE MOMS.

Efrem: THE HEARTBREAK

KID, SEAN MICHAELS, IS

HERE WITH A LOOK AT HIS

NEW MOVIE.

I ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY

ACTING, BUT I NEVER WANTED

TO DO IT WHILE I WAS ALSO

WRESTLING.

Efrem: ALSO AHEAD...

THE PRICE FOR YOUR

GLORY IS THEIR SUFFERING.

Efrem: A LOOK AT

MARTIN SCORCESE'S FILM,

"SILENT."

IT WILL RENDER YOU

SPEECHLESS.

THE THEMES ARE

FASCINATING TO ME.

Efrem: PLUS...

I'M PUERTO RICAN, WE

ONLY SPEAK A LITTLE, BUT

NO ABLA.

Efrem: ON THE ROAD TO

BECOMING THE NEXT BIG STAR

IN THE RAP GAME WITH

JERMAINE DUPRIS IN "STUDIO

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "STUDIO 5."

WE'VE GOT LOTS OF GOOD

STUFF TO GET TO, SO LET'S

JUMP RIGHT IN WITH THE

WEEK'S TOP FIVE.

> AT NUMBER FIVE...KEN

FIVE...KENDRICK GOES

GOSPEL.

* I KNOW GOD

*

Efrem: KENDRICK LAMAR

SAYS HIS NEXT ALBUM WILL

FOCUS ON GOD.

*

Efrem: IN AN

INTERVIEW WITH THE "NEW

YORK TIMES," LAMAR SAID,

"WE'RE IN A TIME WHERE WE

EXCLUDE ONE MAJOR

COMPONENT OUT OF THIS

WHOLE THING CALLED LIFE:

GOD.

NOBODY SPEAKS ON IT

BECAUSE IT IS ALMOST IN

CONFLICT WITH WHAT IS

GOING ON IN THE WORLD.

WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT

POLITICS AND GOVERNMENT

AND THE SYSTEM."

*

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FOUR...THE POP GAME.

I'M TIMBALAND.

300 MILLION RECORDS SOLD

AND STILL COUNTING.

Efrem: THE HIT-MAKER

BEHIND JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE,

DESTINY'S CHILD AND KATY

PERRY IS LOOKING FOR THE

NEXT BIG POP STAR.

> WHAT SETS THIS

COMPETITION APART FROM ANY

OTHER COMPETITION OUT

THERE?

ALL OF THESE KIDS, TO

ME, ARE ALL -- I FEEL LIKE

GOD MAYBE CHOSE THEM.

ASHLIN, JADE, MADISON,

AND GRANT, ARE TEENAGED

YouTube STARS,

COMPETING FOR A CONTRACT

ON TIMBALAND'S LABEL.

IT IS A BLESSING FOR ME

TO BE A PART OF THEIR

LIVES.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

THREE, WEDDING BELLS RING,

TIMES TWO.

* WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME

Efrem: TASHA COBBS IS

NOW TASHA COBBS LEONARD,

TWEETING THIS PHOTO AFTER

TYING THE KNOT WITH MUSIC

PRODUCER LEONARD.

AND CONGRATULATIONS ARE

ALSO IN ORDER FOR R & B

SINGER TYRESE, WHO

REVEALED HE TIED THE KNOT

ON VALENTINE'S DAY.

CREFLO DOLLAR PROVIDED

PREMARITAL COUNSELLING.

TELLING THEM BE PATIENT

AND PRESENT IN LOVE.

* BABY

*

*

Efrem: AT NUMBER TWO,

DISHWASHER BECOMES OWNER.

ONE OF THE WORLD'S TOP

RESTAURANTS HAS PROMOTED

ITS LONG-TIME DISHWASHER

TO BECOME A CO-OWNER OF

THE BUSINESS.

Efrem: THIS IS COBB KOPPEN

COPENHAGEN'S FAMED

RESTAURANT, WHERE THEY

HAVE PROMOTED ALI SONKO,

WHO IS NOW PART OWNER.

Efrem: AND NUMBER

ONE, A BIG GIFT.

$1 MILLION TO CHICAGO'S

PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOR ARTS

PROGRAMS.

*

Efrem: THE

GRAMMY-WINNING ARTIST

ANNOUNCED HIS MILLION

DOLLAR GIFT.

I'M PROUD TO ANNOUNCE

THAT I AM DONATING

$1 MILLION TO C.P.S.

Efrem: FOLLOWING

FAILED TALKS WITH

ILLINOIS' GOVERNOR TO

RESTORE MORE THAN

$200 MILLION TO THE CITY

SCHOOLS' BUDGET.

THIS CHECK THAT I

DONATED IS A CALL TO

ACTION.

I'M CHALLENGING MAJOR

COMPANIES AND CORPORATIONS

IN CHICAGO AND ALL ACROSS

THE U.S. TO DONATE AND TO

TAKE ACTION.

Efrem: LONG-TIME

WRESTLING FANS KNOW SEAN

MICHAELS AS THE HEARTBREAK

KID, BUT HE HAS BEEN OUT

OF THE WRESTLING GAME FOR

QUITE SOME TIME.

SO WHAT IS HE UP TO NOW?

WE'RE SITTING DOWN WITH

HIM THIS WEEK FOR THE

"STUDIO 5" INTERVIEW.

Efrem: HAVEN'T

WRESTLED FOR HOW LONG?

COMING UP ON SEVEN

YEARS.

Efrem: ANY THOUGHT OF

GOING BACK?

NO, NOT IF I CAN HELP

IT.

Efrem: HOW DID YOU

COME TO "THE RESURRECTION

OF GAVIN STONE"?

DON'T YOU KNOW WHO DID

IT?

YEAH, EXACTLY.

WE DON'T WANT THE CREDIT.

I JUMPED AT THE CHANCE.

I THOUGHT IT WAS

INCREDIBLY INTERESTING.

AND, OF COURSE, I'VE

ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY

ACTING, BUT I NEVER WANTED

TO DO IT WHILE I WAS ALSO

WRESTLING.

I DON'T CONSIDER MYSELF A

VERY GOOD MULTI-TASKER.

AND CERTAIN IT WAS CERTAINLY IT WAS A

FAITH BASED MOVIE.

> I'VE NEVER ACTED

BEFORE, BUT I'M WILLING TO

SERVE THE LORD IN WHATEVER

WAY YOU SEE FIT.

CREATIVELY, ART

ARTISTICALLY, THINGS THAT

INTEREST ME I WILL DO.

HONESTLY, THAT'S WHAT

DROVE ME TO WRESTLING.

IT WAS ONLY SO MANY YEARS

INTO WRESTLING THAT IT

BECAME A LINE OF WORK,

WHERE YOU COULD ACTUALLY

MAKE A LIVING AND HAVE A

FUTURE.

AND ALONG THE JOURNEY, IT

GOT BIG AND WORLD-WIDE,

BUT IT DIDN'T START OUT

THAT WAY.

AND THAT WASN'T WHAT DREW

ME TO IT.

IT IS -- I'VE LEARNED OVER

THE YEARS THAT THE GOD

LORD HAS PUT IN ME A SORT

OF -- I CALL IT AN ARTSY

FARTSY THING I KNOW I WILL

ENJOY.

IT'S NOT NECESSARILY

SOMETHING I HAVE TO MAKE A

LIVING AT OUR GET PAID

FOR.

I FEEL LIKE IF IT IS DONE

FOR THE RIGHT REASONS AND

IT IS MEANT TO BE, THAT

STUFF WILL COME IN TIME.

Efrem: THEY SAY DO

WHAT YOU LOVE AND THE

MONEY WILL COME.

> SO HOW DIFFICULT WAS

IT TO MAKE THIS TRANSITION

TO PLAY THIS PARTICULAR

CHARACTER?

THE ONE GOOD THING IS

THAT DOUG AND I DID HAVE A

LOT IN COMMON.

OUR JOURNEYS TO FAITH WERE

SIMILAR.

SO FROM THAT STANDPOINT,

AGAIN, I WAS VERY

COMFORTABLE.

BUT I'M KNOWN AS THE

WRESTLER GUY.

AND SO TO BE ABLE TO STEP

INTO ANOTHER ROLE AND

ALLOW THAT TO FLOW THROUGH

YOU NATURALLY, AND STILL

BE ABLE TO CONVINCE THE

AUDIENCE THAT YOU ARE NO

LONGER SEAN MICHAELS --

AGAIN, IT'S ALL THOSE

CHALLENGES THAT INTRIGUE

ME AND WHAT I ENJOYED

ABOUT THE PROCESS.

CLEARLY IT IS ALWAYS UP TO

THE PEOPLE THAT WATCH THE

MOVIE ABOUT WHETHER I DID

A GOOD JOB.

BUT I DO KNOW I REALLY

LIKED IT.

I REALLY ENJOYED IT.

AND CERTAINLY IF PEOPLE

MAKE THE DECISION THAT I

HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB, AND

THE OFFER WERE TO COME UP

AGAIN, I WOULD CERTAINLY

DO IT.

Efrem: YOU MENTIONED

THIS CHARACTER'S JOURNEY

OF FAITH AND YOUR JOURNEY

OF FAITH.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE

YOUR JOURNEY OF FAITH?

ROUGH.

CERTAINLY UNTIL I CAME TO

THE LORD, THE JOURNEY

WASN'T EASY.

YOU KNOW, AGAIN, IN SOME

WAYS IT IS A BIT OF THAT

CLICHE STORY WHERE YOU

EXPERIENCE ALL SORTS OF

WORLDLY SUCCESS AND

SUCCESS IN YOUR LINE OF

WORK, BUT PERSONALLY THERE

IS A HUGE VOID.

WHAT IS NOT CLICHE ABOUT

IT IS THAT MY COMING TO

CHRIST -- IT'S NOW A

PUBLIC THING BECAUSE I

HAVE TOLD PEOPLE THE

STORY, BUT IT WAS NOTHING

THAT ENDED UP ON THE FRONT

PAGE OF A LOCAL NEWSPAPER

OR A MUGSHOT OR ANYTHING

LIKE THAT.

IT WAS A VERY PERSONAL

EXPERIENCE IN OUR HOME,

WITH OUR SON AND WITH MY

EXPERIENCE OF BEING A

HUSBAND AND A FATHER AND

SEEING THAT I WAS FAILING

AT THAT.

AND THAT BOTHERING ME TO

THE CORE.

AND ULTIMATELY REALIZING

THAT, AGAIN, THERE NEEDED

TO BE CHANGE.

IT IS FUNNY HOW YOU CAN

HAVE AN AWARENESS -- AND

I'VE HEARD THE PHRASES

"BEING SAVED" AND "BORN

AGAIN" BUT I NEVER REALLY

KNEW WHAT THEY WERE.

AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, I

HADN'T EXPERIENCED

SALVATION AND WHAT GOES

ON.

BUT WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE

IT, AS I DID -- I'VE

LEARNED OVER THE YEARS

THAT IT IS CALLED A

RADICAL SALVATION, AND

THAT CERTAINLY WAS WHAT

MINE WAS.

I WEPT LIKE A BABY, BUT IT

WAS THERE.

IT WAS THERE TO STAY.

AND WHATEVER IT IS NOW,

15, 16 YEARS LATER, IT IS

STILL AS DEEP AS IT WAS

ALL THOSE YEARS AGO, WHICH

IS A NICE THING.

Efrem: BEAUTIFUL.

THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

SO WHAT'S NEXT?

WE'VE GOT "THE

RESURRECTION OF GAVIN

STONE."

WHAT'S NEXT?

IT IS THIS AND A HALF,

"GAVIN STONE," AND WE'LL

SEE.

I'M AT A STAGE IN MY LIFE

WHERE I DON'T WANT TO PUSH

ANY DOORS OPEN.

I'M SORT OF -- I'M BEING

STILL AND KNOWING THAT HE

IS GOD AND LETTING HIM

OPEN THE DOORS THAT HE

WANTS ME TO WALK THROUGH.

I RETIRED BECAUSE I WANTED

TO HELP MY WIFE RAISE OUR

CHILDREN.

THAT'S WHAT'S ALWAYS NEXT

FOR ME, FIRST AND

FOREMOST.

I DO APPEARANCES, AND I

STILL GO BACK TO THE

W.W.W. AND DO SOME THINGS

THERE.

I DON'T KNOW.

IT IS WHATEVER THE GOOD

LORD HAS FOR ME.

AND ME WELCOMING THAT AND

GOING FROM THERE.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD ON

"STUDIO 5"...ANDREW

GARFIELD STARS IN A FILM

RAISING BIG-LIFE

QUESTIONS.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO

LIVE A LIFE OF TRUE FAITH?

DOES THE INTERNAL LIFE AND

FAITH HAVE TO MATCH UP

WITH THE EXTERNAL

SHOWINGS?

Efrem: A LOOK AT

Efrem: MARTIN

SCORCESE IS A BRILLIANT

FILM-MAKER.

HIS LATEST WORK,

"SILENCE," I'VE SEEN IT

AND I CAN TELL YOU IT WILL

RENDER YOU SPEECHLESS.

IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T SEEN

IT, HERE IS YOUR FIRST

LOOK.

OUR LORD SAID TO THEM,

GO YEE INTO THE WHOLE

WORLD AND PREACH THE

GOSPEL TO EVERY LIVING

CREATURE.

MY LIFE IS INVOLVED

WITH RELIGIOUS THOUGHT,

RELIGIOUS ACTION, THE

RACING OEMBRACING OF IT, THE

DENIAL, AND THE EMBRACING

OF IT AGAIN.

EVERY ONE OF THESE THEMES

AFFECTED MOST OF THE

PICTURES I'VE MADE.

IT LED TO "RAGING BULL,"

WHICH LED TO "THE

TEMPTATION OF CHRIST,"

WHICH LED TO "SILENCE."

NAGASAKI WAS KIND OF

KNOWN AS THE ROME OF THE

EAST BECAUSE IT SPREAD

CATHOLICISM AND IT SPREAD

CHRISTIANITY, SO RAPIDLY.

AND SO YOU HAVE A

GOVERNMENT THAT DOESN'T

LIKE THAT, THAT STARTS TO

FEEL THEY'RE LOSING THEIR

HISTORY AND WANTS TO

RECLAIM IT, AND THEY'RE

COMPLETELY JUSTIFIED TO

BEHAVE WITH WHATEVER MEANS

AT THEIR DISPOSAL TO

ACCOMPLISH THAT, EVEN IF

THAT MEANS KILLING PEOPLE

OR PERSECUTING PEOPLE, AND

SADLY, I THINK THAT IS

STILL RELEVANT.

HE IS A WONDERFUL

ARTIST.

>WITH "SILENCE" HE

IS VERY, VERY -- I GUESS I

MEAN SORT OF HANDS-ON.

HE CREATED A VERY, VERY

SPECIAL ATMOSPHERE ONSET.

AND THE BACKBONE OF THAT

WAS SILENCE.

HE WANTED QUIET FROM

EVERYBODY.

IT WAS QUITE INTIMIDATING

TO HAVE A CREW OF 75 TO

100 PEOPLE ALL BEING QUIET

AND JUST FOCUSED ON THE

SCENE THAT YOU'RE BOWING

TABOUT TODO.

IT WAS THE PERFECT

ENVIRONMENT IN ORDER TO GO

INTO THIS STORY, THE

SUBJECT MATTER OF QUESTING

AFTER FAITH.

THE NATURE OF FAITH AND

THE NATURE OF DOUBT.

PRICE FOR YOUR GLORY IS

THEIR SUFFERING.

WE ASK FOR THIS

MISSION.

FOR ME, WHEN YOU'RE

DEALING WITH SUBJECT

MATTER THAT HAS SUCH A

PHILOSOPHICAL AND

RELIGIOUS IMPACT, AND

YOU'RE TRYING TO

UNDERSTAND IT, OR AT LEAST

TRYING TO BE IMMERSED IN

IT TO BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND

IT, THAT KEEPS YOU GOING

BECAUSE THAT AFFECTS YOUR

LIFE.

IT ISN'T LIKE YOU MAKE A

FILM AND YOU LIVE LIFE A

DIFFERENT WAY.

IT ALL COMES TOGETHER.

SO I'VE BEEN VERY

FORTUNATE THAT SOME OF THE

PICTURES I'VE MADE HAVE

HELPED ME TRY TO SORT OUT

THINGS IN MY OWN LIFE.

OUR MISSION HERE IS

MORE URGENT THAN EVER.

WE MUST GO FIND FATHER

FERAREA.

THIS IS IN YOUR HEARTS,

BOTH OF YOU?

YES.

THEN I MUST TRUST GOD

HAS PUT IT THERE.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD...

HE PUT HIS MAGIC

TOGETHER.

Efrem: ..."STUDIO 5"

HAS AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE

REALITY COMPETITION TO

BECOME THE NEXT BIG RAP

STAR WITH HIP-HOP LEGEND

*

[RAP MUSIC]

[APPLAUSE]

NOAH'S RAP STARTED

GOING AT THE LADIES AND HE

WAS A LITTLE SMOOTH.

TO ME, THAT'S OKAY.

THAT'S NOT A TRUE

INTRODUCTION, BUT HE

DIDN'T OVERHIT US WITH THE

BBYBILINGUAL STUFF.

Efrem: NOAH IS ONE TO

WATCH IN A HIT SHOW WHERE

JERMAINE DUPRI SEARCHES

FOR THE NEXT BIG TEEN RAP

STAR.

AND JOINING US TO TALK

ABOUT THE THIRD SEASON ARE

JERMAINE DUPRI AND NOAH.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

US.

Efrem: SO THE SHOW IS

IN ITS THIRD SEASON.

WHY IS THIS SUCH A HIT, DO

YOU THINK?

BECAUSE OF THE

EDUCATION.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS

NOT OFFERED ANYWHERE ELSE

ON TV.

IT IS ALSO A GROUP OF

INDIVIDUALS THAT PEOPLE

SEEM TO FORGET ABOUT, BUT

THEY WANT THEM TO PAY FOR

AND BUY ALL OF THE MUSIC.

ARTISTS WANT ALL OF THE

KIDS AT THEIR CONCERTS AND

ALL OF THE KIDS TO SING

THE RAPS, BUT THEY FORGET

THAT THESE KIDS NEED THAT

EDUCATION.

A LOT OF OUTLETS, THEY

USED TO CATER TO GIVING

THIS INFORMATION AND

EDUCATION ABOUT THE GENRE,

THE CULTURE, BUT IT IS NOT

PLENTIFUL ANYMORE.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

I CAN'T THANK LIFETIME

ENOUGH FOR ALLOWING ME TO

GIVE THIS TO THE WORLD,

THE WAY THAT I AM.

WE ARE THE ONLY RAP TV

SHOW OUT BASICALLY.

AND THAT'S WHY IT IS SO

SUCCESSFUL.

Efrem: NOAH, HOW DOES

IT FEEL?

YOU'RE SITTING NEXT TO A

LIVING LEGEND IN THE

HIP-HOP INDUSTRY, TO WORK

WITH HIM AND TO COMPETE IN

THIS?

IT IS AMAZING.

THIS IS MY GOOD, JERMAINE

DUPRI.

EVER SINCE I KNEW ABOUT

THIS SHOW, I FELT LIKE I

WAS DESTINED TO BE ON IT.

AND IT'S GREAT, WORKING

WITH J.D. ON THE SHOW.

IT IS BASICALLY A DREAM

COME TRUE, TO BE ABLE TO

DO WHAT I WANT TO DO WITH

SOMEBODY SO POWERFUL IN

THE MUSIC TRAE.

INDUSTRY.

Efrem: WHAT'S THE

SECRET TO SEE WHAT IS

HIDDEN INSIDE THEM?

REALLY JUST -- LIKE I

SAID, IT IS SOMETHING THAT

I LEARNED ABOUT ME AT A

VERY EARLY AGE.

CHRIS CROSS BASICALLY

INSTILLED IN ME TO

UNDERSTAND THAT I CAN SEE

THINGS.

AND IF I MOVE ON WHAT I

SEE, THEY CAN BE

SUCCESSFUL.

THAT'S BASICALLY WHAT I

JUST STARTED DOING IN THE

INDUSTRY.

I DID IT WITH CHRIS CROSS

AND THEN WITH ESCAPE, AND

THEN I DID IT WITH JAGGED

EDGE AND THEN WITH BOW WOW

AND THEN WITH USHER.

I TOOK WHAT GOD HAD GIVEN

ME, AND THAT'S A GIFT TO

ACTUALLY SEE THINGS AND

TRY TO CARVE THEM INTO

BEING THE BEST THEY COULD

ACTUALLY BE.

I NEVER ACTUALLY CHANGE

PEOPLE, YOU KNOW WHAT I

MEAN?

I HAVE THEM DO SOMETHING

THAT IS WITHIN THEM

ALREADY.

I'M NOT TELLING YOU TO

CHANGE.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, A LOT

OF TIMES I TELL ARTISTS TO

DO THINGS THAT THEY DO

THEMSELVES THAT THEY DON'T

EVEN REALIZE THAT THEY

DID.

I JUST SEE IT AND I SAY,

REMEMBER THAT TIME WHEN

YOU DID BLAH, BLAH, BLAH,

YOU MIGHT SHOULD DO THAT

AGAIN.

AND IT'S CRAZY, BECAUSE A

LOT OF PEOPLE NEED THEM TO

REMIND OF THINGS THEY DO.

A LOT OF PEOPLE DO A LOT

OF GOOD THINGS, BUT THEY

OVERLOOK IT BECAUSE YOU

THINK YOU HAVE TO DO

SOMETHING DIFFERENT EVERY

DAY.

IT'S JUST LIKE ME WITH

THESE SUITS.

I USED TO PUT A SUIT ON

EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.

AND THEN I STARTED

NOTICING HOW THE WOMEN

TALKED TO ME A LITTLE

DIFFERENTLY.

SO THEN YOU'RE GOING TO

PUT IT ON EVERY TIME.

REALLY THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

YOU'VE GOT TO PAY

ATTENTION TO THE LITTLE

FLASHES THAT HAPPEN IN

LIFE.

AND I'M THE PERSON THAT

CATCHES THOSE AND PAYS

ATTENTION TO IT AND SAYS,

YOU KNOW WHAT?

I SAW YOU DO SOMETHING THE

OTHER DAY.

YOU SHOULD PROBABLY GO

BACK TO THAT.

AND THEN THE ARTISTS

THINK, LIKE -- AT FIRST,

THEY THINK YOU'RE TRYING

TO CHANGE ME.

AND I'M, LIKE, LISTEN, YOU

DID IT.

I'M NOT TELLING YOU TO DO

ANYTHING THAT YOU HAVEN'T

DONE.

YOU DID THIS ALREADY

YOURSELF, RIGHT?

AND, YOU KNOW, IT'S

BASICALLY -- IF YOU LOOK

AT THIS SEASON, THAT'S WHY

I BROUGHT TALI BACK.

FIRST OF ALL, IT'S MY

SHOW.

I CAN DO WHAT I WANT TO

DO, SO I BROUGHT HER BACK.

BUT, SECONDLY, I BROUGHT

HER BACK BECAUSE I SAW

SOMETHING IN HER THAT SHE

POSSESSES.

SHE JUST HASN'T HAD

ANYBODY TO PUSH HER TO GET

IT OUT.

I DON'T EXPECT THEM TO

COME TO ME AT 100%.

IF THEY COME TO ME AT

100%, THEY DON'T NEED TO

BE ON THE RAP GAME BECAUSE

I CAN'T OFFER ANYTHING.

THEY COME TO ME HALF WAY

AND IT IS TIME FOR ME TO

FILL UP THE REST OF THE

CUP.

Efrem: SEASON THREE

SOUNDS LIKE IT IS THE ONE

TO WATCH.

IT WILL INCLUDE A VISIT

FROM MINISTER BERNICE

KING, THE DAUGHTER OF

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

THANK YOU BOTH, GENTLEMEN.

LOOKING FORWARD TO IT,

JANUARY 13th ON

LIFETIME.

Efrem: UP NEXT...

I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THAT

MANKIND IS SO TRAGICALLY

BOUND TO RACISM.

Efrem: HONORING AND

REMEMBERING AN AMERICAN

HERO, WITH A SPECIAL

MESSAGE FROM A MEMBER OF

THE KING FAMILY.

*

HIS NAME WAS ETHAN.

AND MY NAME WAS BAILEY,

BAILEY, BAILEY.

Efrem: CANINES ARE

THE STARS IN THE NEW FILM

"A DOG'S PURPOSE."

AND THIS MOVIE MAY VERY

WELL CHANGE THE WAY YOU

SEE YOUR OWN

FURRY-FOUR-LEGGED BEST

FRIEND.

JUST ASK THE ACTORS.

I LOVE DOGS.

I HAVE TWO DOGS NOW.

I CAN'T REMEMBER NOT

HAVING A DOG.

I HAVE A SHEPHERD MIX.

THAT'S HER.

SHE IS AN AMERICAN

BULLDOG-BOXER MIX.

I DON'T THINK YOU'LL

EVER LOOK AT YOUR DOG THE

SAME WAY.

Efrem: AND YOU CAN

CATCH THAT FULL STORY NEXT

WEEK.

> THIS WEEK WE

CELEBRATED THE MARTIN

LUTHER KING, JR. HOLIDAY.

HIS DREAM WAS TO SEE A

UNIFIED AMERICA.

SO I'M GIVING TODAY'S

FINAL WORD TO HIS NIECE,

ALZITA KING, AND SHE

SHARES THE MESSAGE ABOUT

THE IMPORTANCE OF COMING

TOGETHER.

MY UNCLE, MARTIN LUTHER

KING, JR., SAID, WE MUST

LEARN TO LIVE TOGETHER AT

BROTHERS, AND I ADD AS

SISTERS, TOO.

SO IF WE CAN BEGIN TO SEE

EACH OTHER AT BROTHERS AND

SISTERS, DIFFERENT SKIN

COLOR, ONE RACE, ONE

FAMILY -- AND IF WE CAN

SEE THAT, THEN OUR

DREAMS -- WE CAN BEGIN TO

HAVE DREAMS AND DESIRES

AND VISIONS OF WHAT WE CAN

BE.

AND IF WE'RE ABLE TO LOVE

EACH OTHER, THEN WE CAN

FULFILL ALL OF THAT

TOGETHER.

Efrem: UNTIL NEXT

TIME, REACH OUT AND TOUCH

ME AT EFREM GRAHAM ON

Facebook, TWITTER, AND

INSTAGRAM.

AND THEN COME ON BACK AND

SEE WHERE "STUDIO 5" TAKES

YOU NEXT WEEK.

BYE-BYE.
