Music From Tyler Perry's Romance Drama
Cassandra Wilson's smoky jazz vocals on a gorgeous mellow rendition of Cyndi Lauper's now pop standard "Time After Time" lend a kind of appropriate musical gravitas to Tyler Perry's Good Deeds Soundtrack. If you haven't yet heard the cover version by Michelle Chamue from this season's The Voice visit iTunes to hear her renditions of Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" & "Time After Time" which is a testament to the strength of Lauper's songwriting that her songs still hold up today.
The movie is being touted as a bold step for Perry who lays bare his emotions sans Madea's outrageous wig and dress in a lovely romantic drama that tells the universal story of following your heart in both love and in life. If you haven't yet seen the movie and you have a Netflix subscription, it's one of the few decent inspiring romantic movies that's available to watch instantly online. In it, Perry plays a soft spoken CEO. I wonder if he's that reserved and thoughtful in real life?
There's no official Good Deeds O.S.T. cd being released of the songs or the score by Aaron Zigman (Madea's Big Happy Family, What's Your Number, I Don't Know How She Does It). So you'll just have to enjoy Zigman's music cues in the movie.
However the individual songs on the Good Deeds Soundtrack List include music by Electrolightz, Anny Celsi, Tupac, Cassandra Wilson, Kem, Richard Marx, Shelly Fraley, Jay Weigl, Barry Levitt, Carvin Knowles, dj eMpTy, Michael J Stern & Bach.

What I love about the Beyond the Trailer videos is that they go out and get opinion from everyday movie goers not just professional movie critics and in general, it seems movie goers really appreciate Tyler Perry's dramatic turn in Good Deeds.

Tyler Perry is more than just a crass film maker in drag. Perry proves he is one of the most energetic, busy film makers who is helping others along the way.
