In recent months, we have shared in the excitement of experiencing CCM artists across the board being celebrated for their art and faith on programs like American Idol, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The View, Jimmy Kimmel Live, FOX & Friends, The Today Show, among others.
Beyond television, we are all bearing witness to the rise of faith-based feature films becoming a major player in Hollywood. God’s Not Dead (and the upcoming God’s Not Dead 2), Fireproof, War Room, Soul Surfer, Woodlawn—to name a few—have become household titles, and the CCM artist community involvement in these films is equally as thrilling as it is a crucial element of their successes.
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. (Eph. 3:20, The Message)
The silver screen is built around, and even evokes dreams. The members of NewSong—masterminds behind our biggest touring show year in and year out—have been dreaming wildly lately (in partnership with Fathom Events and WORD Entertainment), and have intersected the best in Christian music with cinema by creating This Is Winter Jam, a one-night-only movie event hitting theatres in cities all over the U.S. on Tuesday, Apr. 19. Remembering that ‘God can do anything,’ I urge you to take advantage of this unique time and opportunity. He has already worked His Spirit with those involved in Winter Jam—it’s now up to you to utilize the power of cinematic production, and take this chance to bring a friend (or two) to the movies. You’ve only got one night!
