Sharing the vision for the upcoming record and movie projects slated for release through Reverence Gospel Media, I’m in Love with a Church Girl director Steve Race comments, “Movies speak to the mind but music speaks to the heart.”
Producer and writer Galley Molina states, “We are paying close attention to the entire music element of this movie. From the scoring of the film by award winning composer Bruce Fowler to this multi-platinum artist soundtrack. These are the hottest groups in Christian/Gospel music and they are all joining together to make this soundtrack one of the best to date. Movie or no movie, this soundtrack is a STAND ALONE project.”
The 2-disc soundtrack features original music inspired by the film and includes artists such as Israel Houghton, Mary Mary, New Breed, TobyMac, Fred Hammond, India Arie, Beckah Shae, Anthony Hamilton, Third Day, Ja Rule, Adrienne Bailon, T-Bone and many more. Newcomers Shari B and Amanda Shelby will also make their singing debut on the soundtrack.
I’m in Love with a Church Girl is the first film from Reverence Gospel Media and features an all-star cast including Ja Rule (The Fast and the Furious, Shall We Dance), Adrienne Bailon (Cheetah Girls), Stephen Baldwin (Usual Suspects, The Young Riders) and Grammy Award winning artist, producer, performer, TobyMac in his debut cameo acting role.
The film depicts a unique story centered on a retired high-level drug trafficker Miles Montego (Ja Rule), whose life has gone legitimate yet he remains loyal to his tight knit circle of friends and former colleagues in the business. When he meets Vanessa (Adrienne Bailon), a church girl in every sense of the word, he must decide whether to hold onto his old ways or let them go. Throughout the film Miles and Vanessa are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other.
In addition, I’m in Love with a Church Girl is scored by music composer Bruce Fowler (Dark Knight, Lion King) and legend jazz trumpeter and pianist, Arturo Sandoval also contributed to the score.
