The story follows 16-year-old Cyrus DeBarge, an aspiring musician who has a gift for rhyme yet lacks the self-confidence to take the stage and, through his rap song, tell his longtime crush Roxanne Andrews how he feels about her. After he and his flighty best friend, Kris McDuffy enter a songwriting contest, Kris is mistakenly named the winner for a song Cyrus wrote. Fearful of being thrust into the spotlight, Cyrus panics and allows Kris to take credit for his heartfelt lyrics and soon he's standing by as Roxanne begins to fall for Kris.

The "Let It Shine" cast includes Tyler James Williams ("Everybody Hates Chris") as Cyrus DeBarge, a gifted rapper full of self-doubt; Coco Jones (Radio Disney "N.B.T.") as Roxanne Andrews, a fast-rising music star; Trevor Jackson ("Cold Case") as Kris McDuffy, a thrilling dancer with a bigger than life personality; Brandon Mychal Smith ("So Random!") as Lord of Da Bling, the intimidating champion rapper; Nicole Sullivan ("MADtv") as Roxanne's powerful music manger Lyla; Courtney B. Vance ("FlashForward") as Cyrus' preacher father, Jacob DeBarge, who opposes rap music; and Dawnn Lewis ("A Different World") as Cyrus' mother, Gail.

Scott ("Barbershop," "Barbershop 2: Back in Business") and Eric Daniel. The movie is choreographed by Danny Teeson ("American Idol") and associate Brandon Shaw ("So You Think You Can Dance," NAACP Image Awards).
