Holy Ghost Fire: The Heartbreak Life of Raymond Myles, Gospel Genius of New Orleans follows Raymond’s hard path from grinding poverty to the public schools where he steered countless students away from lives of ruin, and to the world’s biggest concert stages where he mesmerized the faithful until his shocking murder, on the cusp of stardom, in the projects he could not leave behind.

Propelled by joyous and poignant gospel music, and richly supported by Raymond’s own eye-popping performances, the documentary also lifts the veil on the subject of homosexuality’s taboo status in the church by posing some universal questions: What makes a person good or bad or spiritual, and who decides what is moral and what is not?
