Bristol, Virginia-based artist Aaron Cole landed an acting role in a new Christmas movie called Believe which will open in select theaters nationwide on Dec. 2.

Cole, a 2016 Rapzilla Freshman, plays the homeless best friend of the film’s co-star, CJ. Cole not only has lines in the production, but also sings and performs with former Christian hip-hop giant John Reuben.

This news comes just weeks after Cole released an EP titled If I Can Be Honest, which is available for free download on Rapzilla.com.
