The most celebrated story of all time was certainly celebrated on Twitter. Big stars like Hoda Kotb and Carrie Underwood were overwhelmed by the power and beauty of The Passion and shared their joy over the production with their many followers. Check out some of their reactions below!
Yes, lots of celebs took to Twitter to talk about Tyler Perry‘s take on the final days of life on Earth from the streets of New Orleans. With powerhouse performances from Jencarlos Canela, Chris Daughtry, and Trisha Yearwood, viewers were moved by the combination of modern music and the unforgettable story of Jesus’ sacrifice for his followers. Among those who loved the performance were Hoda, former Bachelorette Emily Maynard, and Chris’ fellow American Idol alum Melinda Doolittle! Even the band Evanescence — whose song was featured in the show — loved it!
The fact that #ThePassionLive is on tv is proof so many people are searching for something more meaningful than what they have now. So cool!
