Tyler Perry gives a word on faith, fatherhood and acting on your dreams!

Yes, Girl! - March 29, 2018

Faith, family and forgiveness — and very Black — that’s the formula that has made Tyler Perry (@tylerperry) one of the most successful storytellers in Hollywood. But as he chatted with us about his new film Acrimony, Tyler opened up about how fatherhood has informed his work, creating generational wealth and whether or not he thinks he's funny. Yes, Girl! hosts: Cori Murray @corimurray; Charli Penn @ManWifeDog; and Yolanda Sangweni @yolizama Producer: Steven Psyllos @stevenpsyllos Audio engineer: Chiquita Paschal @ChiquitaPaschal Music: Gold Standard Creative @gscdotnyc
