According to the Christian Post on Monday, Academy award winning actor, Denzel Washington shared wisdom and knowledge to young aspiring actors and actresses, and R&B singer, Tyrese Gibson got wind of it and posted the video on his Facebook page.
It is no secret that Denzel Hayes Washington, Jr. 59, is a Christian, so then giving spiritual advice would be befitting for him. He told students to, "Put your shoes way under the bed at night so you gotta get on your knees in the morning." The film director and film producer was referring to prayer when he suggested that students get on their knees.
Currently, Washington is in a Broadway play, "A Raisin in the Sun," and the team gathers each morning and prayer is offered. The young boy on the set prays each morning before they perform.
In the video, Washington admonished students to be disciplined. He also instructed students to be "thankful."
Tyrese Gibson took full advantage of Denzel, "dropping knowledge," as he calls it, to the young people. Dropping knowledge, in other words is, sharing information that is useful and has the ability to change lives. Dropping refers to saying, sharing and giving. Washington is a father himself, and knows and understands the value of taking time to mentor young people.
Gibson is one to drop knowledge as well. On his Facebook page he posts videos of valuable tips about life. He says that his calling and purpose is to "Motivate the unmotivated, and Inspire the uninspired."
Washington further explains to students that they should not just seek out "wealth, " but to seek out God.
Tyrese, 35, is an American Grammy-nominated R&B songwriter, actor, author, and television producer, and believes in God. He, like Denzel, instructs his audience to do what God tells you to do. He is a graduate of Florida A&M University. Gibson was discovered on a bus.
These two powerhouses together, have a wealth of knowledge and wisdom to share with this generation and generations following.
