D. Channsin Berry, via this trailer, announces a new film-in-the-making: “I Raise My Hands …The Tramaine Hawkins Story,” a documentary film about the music and life of Gospel Great, Lady Tramaine Hawkins. The film interviews started with members of the Hawkins/Richardson families. The documentary film will include R&B and pop artist greats and fans, telling the part of Tramaine’s story that saw her growing up in the Bay area in the 1960s. The in-depth interview with Tramaine takes us through the dynamics that shaped her life: the racial tensions and politics of the Vietnam era, her honors and disappointments with the record industry, her life with Walter Hawkins, and the church that eventually disowned her when she recorded the hit dance record, “Fall Down (The Spirit of Love)”, the #1 hit in Europe and #2 hit in the United States.
