"The Soul Man" revolves around R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce "The Voice" Ballentine who was living the high life in Las Vegas at the top of the music charts (see the video for his 80's hit, "Sex Wichoo" here) when he gets the calling to go from soul singer to soul saver. Relocating to St. Louis with his wife, Lolli and his daughter, Lyric to take over the preaching duties in his father's church, his family is not exactly eager to give up the fabulous superstar life for a humble one.

In an effort to move into a new phase of their lives, Boyce and Lolli decide to sell their house and move into a luxury condo. After kicking their family out of the condo, they both question whether they did the right thing.
