Tyler Perry, Seal, Trisha Yearwood, and Chris Daughtry headline a powerful and moving retelling of one of the Bibles greatest stories: The Passion. The Passion tells the 2000-year-old story of the last hours of Jesus Christs life on Earth through passages from the Bible and a variety of popular music, sung by the cast and arranged specifically for the event by executive producer and hit music producer Adam Anders (Glee, Rock of Ages). Set in the present, the event follows the dramatic and inspirational story of Jesus of Nazareth as he presides over the Last Supper, and is then betrayed by Judas, put on trial by Pontius Pilate, convicted, crucified and resurrected. This epic event was broadcast live from some of New Orleans' most iconic locations, while featuring a procession of hundreds of people carrying a 20-foot, illuminated cross from outside the Superdome to the live stage at Woldenberg Park on the banks of the Mississippi River.
