Award-Winning Artist, John Berry, Releases Title Track for Film, “Beautifully Broken”

Film Based On True Events Includes Performances by TobyMac, Michael W. Smith and Plumb

Nashville, Tenn. (February 26, 2018) — ACM, CMA, and Grammy award-winning Country artist, John Berry, has released the title track for Big Film Factory’s exhilarating new feature film“Beautifully Broken” to radio. The song, which features heartfelt lyrics, is perfectly paired with the compelling film that tells the riveting true story of three families, worlds apart, whose paths seem unlikely to cross. Each family faces a crisis beyond their control and is forced to make difficult decisions. Those decisions set in motion a series of events that leads to their lives becoming intertwined in ways they could have never predicted or imagined. Their journeys reveal the divine tapestry of God’s love and guidance, and they learn firsthand the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. Fans can view the trailer at beautifullybrokenmovie.com.

Big Film Factory recently announced that the movie will screen during the 75th Annual National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Proclaim 18 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville on Thursday, March 1, 2018, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dove Award winner Plumb has also recorded an original version of the track, which can also be heard in the film. In addition to Hollywood actors including Oscar nominee Eric Roberts and Benjamin Onyango (God’s Not Dead, Inception), and television personality Thomasina “Goo Goo” Atkins (Mary Mary, Let Goo Dress You), Christian music fans will also recognize CCM legends Toby McKeehan and Michael W. Smith making appearances in the film–McKeehan playing himself, and Smith in the role of Pastor Henry.
