Throughout a series of candid interviews with Mervin, his family, close friends, and colleagues,  the world will now have its first unfettered glimpse into the life of Mervin - the hidden gem of the South.

Having traveled the world over as a dancer, actor, and signing performer, Mervin's life is full of experiences that he hopes to serve as an inspiration to anyone who hears of them.
