The hear-wrenching family tale of truth and forgiveness is part of the network’s celebration of national Gospel Music Heritage Month, an initiative to recognize this unique American art form spearheaded by GMC and passed by the U.S. Senate and Congress in 2008.
Written by Johnnie C. Johnson Jr., “The Love You Save” tells the story of Alexis Benet (Givens), a materialistic workaholic who tries to use her money and social influence to control every aspect of her children’s lives. But when one of her bighearted children brings home a homeless man in an effort to convince her mother to help save a local shelter, Alexis is forced to acknowledge that the man is actually her estranged husband and the children’s father. As the truth surfaces, Alexis must answer for the choices she has made to get to the top and begins to question the sacrifices she’s made to live in the lap of luxury.
Remember to tune in this Saturday at 7 p.m. Eastern on GMC.
