'Everybody Hates Chris' star Tyler James Williams stars in the Disney Channel Original Movie 'Let It Shine' premiering tonight at 8 p.m. -- and J-14 Magazine caught up with him at the super chic New York City premiere party on Tuesday night at The Empire Hotel Rooftop (of 'Gossip Girl' fame!).
"The biggest thing is to be yourself," Tyler tells J-14 about the message of 'Let It Shine.' "That's what the story's about. You have three characters who are dealing with issues of fitting in and loving yourself."
In real life, Tyler was lucky not to have to deal with those struggles, thanks to his parents. "My parents were very big on instilling you are who you are -- that's it. And we'll love you regardless," he tells J-14.
As for the music in the movie, Tyler tells J-14 that "Guardian Angel" will be the track that everyone will walk away singing since it captures the message of the movie perfectly.
