Earnest Pugh Starring in New Gospel Stage Production 'Ain't Too Proud to Beg' Musical
Earnest Pugh, the Stellar and Dove Award nominated gospel recording artist, has been wowing audiences starring in the cast of the new musical stage production, "Ain't Too Proud Too Beg."
The musical is presented by 3 Johns Multimedia, directed by Michael Matthews and produced by Emily James. It is a funny, yet heartwarming rollercoaster of laughs, loves, lies, forgiveness, and everything between. The star-studded cast includes Pugh, Stellar award-winning, "Songbird of the South" Dottie Peoples, and more, the gripping narrative tells the tale of a wealthy businessman who has grown dissatisfied with his marriage due to his wife's decision to dedicate her life to Christ. What ensues is a must-see lesson that teaches of the destruction of pride and arrogance, yet also sheds light on God's lasting love for his children.
Earnest plays the role of "Brother Pugh," whose mission is to act as an encouraging force for Lorraine as well as a host of other key characters in the production. With his presence already felt via his inspirational spoken lines, Pugh takes the experience into overdrive when he lends live renditions of his Billboard #1 hits "Rain On Us" and "I Need Your Glory." The latter enjoyed a lengthy nine-week run atop Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs chart.
Director Emily K. James reflects on the experience of working with Pugh aboard the praise-filled play. "Earnest brought his magnificent talent and voice. " I truly had a great time and great worship," she said. "The experience of working with him [Earnest] has been awesome."
Pugh is still enjoying the success of his critically acclaimed #1 Billboard album, THE W.I.N. (Worship In Nassau) EXPERIENCE across the country that features three Billboard Top 20 hit singles- "More Of You," the urban-tinged, J. Moss-assisted cut "I Believe You Most," and its current single "All Things Through Christ" featuring gospel legend Rance Allen.
