LOS ANGELES, Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On September 26th The Song, the highly anticipated movie by City on a Hill Studio that combines the gritty sounds of American roots music with the ancient wisdom of the Song of Solomon, opens in theaters across America. And on Friday, August 22nd, Trinity Broadcasting Network's award-winning Praise the Lord music and talk show welcomes the creators and cast of this intense, big-screen love story that is generating a lot of buzz in both the movie and music industries.
Starring Alan Powell, lead singer of the contemporary Christian group Anthem Lights, along with Ali Faulkner (Twilight: Breaking Dawn) and Caitlin Nicol-Thomas (Nashville), The Song tells the Solomon-like story of Jed King, an aspiring singer-songwriter and son of music legend David King, whose rise to super-stardom leads him into temptation and nearly costs him his marriage and family. The film includes nearly a dozen original songs, and features the vocal and instrumental talents of both Powell and Thomas throughout the movie.
Written and directed by veteran moviemaker Richard Ramsey, The Song is a modern day adaptation of the life and writings of Solomon found in Scripture. Ramsey said that while the film has a strong faith element, there is a solid cross-over appeal among movie audiences. "The Song has the potential to resonate with anyone, regardless of their beliefs or background," he said. "I think movie-goers will appreciate this film as a stand-alone music-driven drama that plays as a cautionary love story and not a cinematic sermon."
Join hosts Matthew and Laurie Crouch as they welcome the creators and cast of the upcoming movie The Song for a special edition of TBN's Praise the Lord show, Friday August 22nd at 7 p.m. Pacific (9 p.m. Central, 10 p.m. Eastern).
