The Preacher’s Wife (1997)
While Soul Food is the best black family film, could The Preacher’s Wife be the ultimate black holiday classic? Yes. Well, we all know that the soundtrack and Whitney Houston’s voice brought the gospel and holiday cheer. And so did Denzel Washington’s performance as an angel with work to do. Listening to songs from the soundtrack and watching the film definitely puts you in the holiday spirit. It sure did for me as a kid.
