A Beautiful Soul is a 2012 drama film directed by American director Jeffrey W. Byrd. The film was first released upon May 4, 2012 and stars Deitrick Haddon, Lesley-Ann Brandt, and Harry Lennix.[2][3]


R&B superstar Andre Stephens (Deitrick Haddon) is on top of the world. He has success, fame, and fortune but spiritually he has lost his way. However, his "perfect" life is shattered when his entourage is brutally attacked, leaving Andre and his best friend Chris Johnson (Robert Ri'chard) clinging to life. On a spiritual journey that exists in a place that is neither on Earth nor in Heaven, Andre is given the opportunity to reevaluate his life and his faith. Andre realises he has a long way to go at church before being great.



Variety gave a mostly negative review for A Beautiful Soul, remarking that the "slackness of the storytelling has the effect of subjecting the low-budget pic’s supernatural elements to charm-killing scrutiny."[4]
