Erik Estrada, former heart throb icon of CHIPS and voted one of "The 10 Sexiest Bachelors in the World" by People in 1979, is lending his celebrity voice on behalf of our Christian heritage. He believes now is the time for Christians to speak out loud and clear.
In concurrence with his belief, he will star in a musical film about America's religious liberty. He states,
“For too long the confusion about prayer at graduation or a Christian-themed musical to be performed in a public school has left Christians uncertain and silent. It’s time we found our voice.”
The film titled Uncommon is about high school students who endure conflict with those who think public schools should be totally secular and allow no trace of religion. It proposes to challenge teens to live unabashedly and with purpose and to undo "the lie that religion has no place in the school house."
"This film was created to remind each of us that we all have unique talents and stories that are miraculously designed for a great purpose." Source
Open casting will be conducted at Thomas Road Baptist Church, 1 Mountain View Rd., Lynchburg, VA 24502 on March 22 and 23, 2013.
