Tonight Fox’s The Passion Live musical event is finally here. The all new special brought to America from the Netherlands use pop music to tell the story of Christ. The story will be narrated by Tyler Perry and stars Jencarlos Canela as Jesus Christ, Chris Daughtry as Judas Iscariot, Prince Royce as Peter, Trisha Yearwood as Mother Mary and Seal as Pontius Pilate. Recently the show’s music producer Adam Anders opened up about the cast.

Glee vet and The Passion music producer Adam Anders recently spoke to Variety, where he doted on the Trisha Yearwood, saying:

“It’s been a dream. Trisha was so important because she’s the anchor of the show. They’re big songs,, they’re big moments … She’s a legend. She has a world-class voice. Her vocals are incredible. She’s so wonderful to work with.”

Anders also commented on Judas actor Chris Daughtry, adding:

“He was the first guy who popped into my head for Judas. To actually have him be in the show, I’m just so appreciative to Fox to have the guy I had in my head bring it to life. It’s just so good.”

Recently it was announced that Seal was added to the cast as Pontius Pilate, which is a decision Anders certainly doesn’t regret, as he went on to add:

“[Seal] was singing next to me and I got goosebumps. For me, the opportunity to work with him is a dream come true. Beyond that, he brings such a cool element to the show. He can walk on that stage and he’s really a powerful man. He has that weight to him.”
