Holiday Rush is a 2019 Christmas romantic comedy-drama film directed by Leslie Small and written by Sean Dwyer and Greg Cope White.[1]

Widowed hip-hop radio DJ Rashon "Rush" Williams loses his job at the radio station WMLE when it is bought by CamCom and switches to a pop format. He and his four children, who have become accustomed to a privileged life, are forced to downsize and move back into Aunt Jo's house where they lived before Rush became wealthy. Rush and his producer Roxy buy WBQL, an old radio station where they used to work, but CamCom puts pressure on advertisers to not buy advertising time from Rush and Roxy.

Rush and Roxy develop a romantic relationship but when Rush announces this to his children, Rush's son Jamal, already angry that he will not be able to afford Harvard anymore, runs away from home. Rush finds Jamal at his deceased mother's favorite location in a nearby park and Jamal expresses his discomfort living in their old house without his mother but comes to accept the new situation and his father's new relationship.

Rush finally manages to sell his large expensive house that he cannot afford anymore and Marshall from WMLE quits his job at the station and invests in WBQL, enabling them to broadcast during the Christmas season.
