‘Left Behind’ 20th Anniversary Remastered Releases

Los Angeles, CA (September 8, 2020)
Twenty years ago, conspiracy theories, misinformation campaigns, censorship, and a deadly virus infecting the world were all part of the thrilling plotlines from the LEFT BEHIND movies produced by Cloud Ten Pictures, based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller book series of the same name. Those movies were an overnight success and went on to sell more than ten million copies on VHS and DVD. Fast forward to 2020 and these ‘plotlines’ are now today’s daily headlines making Cinedigm’s September 1 release more relevant than ever.

Digitally remastered from a new 4K scan from 35MM and with a color upgrade, the 20th Anniversary Edition provides an incredible visual experience that will look great on today’s home entertainment systems. Based on the description of the end times laid out in the Bible, these movies pair perfectly with the film’s unwavering message of warning, preparedness and most importantly hope and salvation for all. The update also includes a slew of never-before-seen bonus features, including access to a full- length documentary exploring the rapture with the world’s foremost biblical scholars and theologians.

“The world we see on the news every day is scarier and more uncertain than it has been in at least a generation,” says LEFT BEHIND screenwriter, producer and Cloud Ten Pictures founder Paul Lalonde. “The world foretold in the Bible and dramatized in the LEFT BEHIND films has never been more real than it is now. It’s really happening, exactly as the Bible predicted thousands of years ago.”

The fear and uncertainty of the Book of Revelation comes to life in the LEFT BEHIND trilogy. Millions vanish, the society is in chaos, evil is lurking, the world is at war; this is the premise for the ground-breaking faith-based trilogy. Starring Kirk Cameron and Louis Gossett, Jr. the anniversary release features all three iconic films: Left Behind, Left Behind: Tribulation Force & Left Behind: World at War and all new bonus features including: the Hollywood premiere special, cast and crew interviews, additional footage, a candid interview with Kirk Cameron about the importance of faith and a featurette with Louis Gossett, Jr. Dove Approved for 12+ the series has become one of the best known faith-based series, changing the genre’s landscape for years to come.

Disc 1:
Left Behind  – NEW 4K SCAN FROM 35MM

Left Behind: World at War
The world is now united under one man, Nicolae Carpathia (Gordon Currie) and the violence and mayhem seems to be under control. But with the help of Buck Williams, American President Gerald Fitzhugh (Lou Gossett Jr) fights back against the supernatural plot to deceive to world

GloryWay Quartet Single ‘Nobody’ Hits Top 20 on Chart

Nashville, TN (September 8, 2020)
Gateway Southern Gospel group GloryWay Quartet recently learned that its latest radio single, “Nobody” has debuted at #11 in the Top 20 New Releases to radio on the SGN Scoops national chart. The single has caught on across the nation and has quickly become a hit for the Ohio based group. It is the first release from their new album, God You’re Amazing.

“Breaking out in the quartet world is tough to say the least. With so many incredible groups already fighting for radio airtime, it can be tough to gain the attention of the industry. GloryWay has become one of the few groups able to grab listeners attention and not let go. Their vocals are as strong as any group on the road and fans just love these guys,” stated Matt Felts, Gateway Management.

The group has already released a video online for “Nobody”, but a special edition is soon to be released. “Everywhere we go and sing this song, it connects with the crowd. People keep coming up to the table and saying that they are a nobody also. We wanted to include our friends and fans on this video” added Justin Crank. The special edition “Nobody” video will debut in the coming weeks.

JP Miller to Host ‘Ogle’s Chapel Hour’ in Sevierville, TN

Sevierville, TN (September 8, 2020)
JP Miller has announced the release of a new Southern Gospel radio program to a local pop station. Miller is no stranger to Southern Gospel music. With a career spanning over two decades in the music industry, JP Miller is a well-known soloist, television personality, and radio host. Miller also works closely with the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame, located in Pigeon Forge, TN.

For the last nine years, JP has hosted the Smoky Mountain Gospel Jubilee, a live radio and television program that broadcasts from Sevierville, TN. The show was an instant hit. Fans enjoyed sitting in the store’s recliners and watching the show in person. Never before has a live radio program been open to the public like this plus being taped for television. Artists that have appeared on the program include Triumphant, Kingdom Heirs, Tony Gore, LuLu Roman, Ann Downing, and many others. During the social distancing season, Miller and crew remained on the air and added Facebook to their program broadcasting from the studio of Praise 96.3. Like many of his music industry peers during the pandemic, Miller faced the cancellation of several concert dates. Although thousands of fans tuned in to enjoy the show via the internet, JP still had time on his hands looking for ways to fulfill his ministry.

Miller approached the Executive Producers of the Smoky Mountain Gospel Jubilee, Ron and Betty Ogle with the idea of doing a brand new gospel music based radio program on a secular station while keeping his Monday night program going.

The Ogles agreed to program and approached the Mix 105.5 station and their sister station Mtn 106.3 in Sevierville, TN. The stations play a mix of adult pop and contemporary songs and is a favorite of locals in Sevier County, TN. Miller approached the stations with the idea of hosting a weekly Sunday morning broadcast that would feature Southern Gospel Music. After meetings of discussion and planning, all parties agreed and JP Miller was named host of Ogle’s Chapel Hour broadcasting on Mix 105.5 and Mtn 106.3 from 9am – 10am in Sevierville, TN.

“This is a way to reach folks with the Gospel and Southern Gospel Music who would typically not listen to our music or our message. Having a presence on secular radio is a great ministry tool. I am excited and thankful for the opportunity to share our music with new people! Just because Covid has hindered our concert appearances and gathering together, our callings and desire to share the message of Jesus is still there. We just need to be a little more creative and think of new ways to reach people” Miller stated.

The show, Ogle’s Chapel Hour will begin on Sunday, September 23, 2020 and will air from 9am – 10am in the Sevier County area of Tennessee. It can be heard around the world on www.mixx1055.com and www.mountain1063.com.

The Collingsworth Family Shares ‘Worship from Home’

Nashville, TN (September 8, 2020)
When The Collingsworth Family gathered in their living room for a Facebook Live concert event, nobody knew just how special that time would be. What started from a heart to raise money for a worthy organization exceeded expectations and culminated in a powerful worship service. Now, they get to share that worship experience with you again. Worship from Home is an intimate, around-the-piano experience with one of America’s favorite Southern Gospel vocal groups.

On March 29, 2020, The Collingsworth Family decided to livestream a concert from their home to benefit Samaritan’s Purse. Just a few days prior, they felt the Lord compelling them to do an online fundraiser and had no idea how far reaching their efforts would be. The day of the event, they made a last-minute decision to record it for archival purposes. The songs they shared were encouraging and calming, something fans so desperately needed, as many states were going into government-imposed lockdowns that very week. Over 600,000 people viewed the online event, and more than $230,000.00 was raised for Samaritan’s Purse, which had just sent a relief team into New York City, the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic at that time.

The Collingsworth Family was thrilled to see what God had done with their act of obedience. Phil Collingsworth, Sr. shares, “When the cameras began to roll and we watched as our crew started the countdown clock to the moment we went live, we had no way of knowing what God had in store for us that evening. We watched as the number of views topped 200,000 and God’s people so generously gave to Samaritan’s Purse, but we didn’t have a clue what that would set in motion!”

Fans flooded their office with requests for CDs and DVDs of the event. Phil continues, “God knew the event would turn into a recording and now be released nationally. That is the God we serve; One who sees beyond what we can see.”

In addition to a newly penned song by Kim Collingsworth, “Joy Is Not Cancelled,” the song selections include hymns and classic songs of the faith they had never previously recorded. Distributed exclusively by Sony/Provident, Worship From Home is available now at digital and retail outlets worldwide and is sure to be an uplifting addition to your CD & DVD collections.
