One thing you can always count on in good music is good music and Jessica Oyelowo did not disappointment in her “What Love Does” single for The Water Man. David Oyelowo directs and stars in the new movie, which debuted in theaters on May 7th.
The movie follows the story of “Gunner (Lonnie Chavis) and his mother (Rosario Dawson) who share a special bond, but when his mom’s illness worsens, he disappears into stacks of books on both science and the supernatural in search of possible cures. After learning about the mythic Water Man, who may carry the secret to everlasting life, Gunner and his rebellious friend Jo (Amiah Miller) go on a quest into the Water Man’s mysterious forest. Facing challenges and dangers they never imagined, the friends’ hope for rescue lies with Gunner’s father (David Oyelowo), who must immerse himself in his son’s world to follow the clues that will lead him to the kids and put his family back together.”
Jessica Oyelowo’s song speaks to that — the mountains the act of love moves — in “What Love Does.”
