Rapper Lecrae, For King & Country's Joel Smallbone in Christmas musical
A CINEMA musical featuring two of Christian music's most popular figures, rapper Lecrae and For King & Country's Joel Smallbone, Journey To Bethlehem has been released in the USA and Canada. It was filmed in Spain and directed by Adam Anders. The film is described as "This live-action Christmas musical adventure for the entire family [which] weaves classic Christmas melodies with humour, faith and new pop songs in a retelling of the greatest story ever told."
Director Anders first had the idea for the musical years ago when he could not find a Christmas movie to watch. He told Catholic Review Radio, "Coming from the music side of things, I was like, there's got to be a musical about the Nativity. I've got this brilliant idea that nobody had thought of and I thought honestly, all these years I've been trying to make this, I kept thinking somebody's going to do it before me."
Journey To Bethlehem will be shown in UK cinemas from 17th November.The opinions expressed in this article are not necessarily those held by Cross Rhythms. Any expressed views were accurate at the time of publishing but may or may not reflect the views of the individuals concerned at a later date.
