For close to two decades, singer-songwriter Israel Houghton has managed to keep much of his personal life out of the spotlight, but that's all about to change.
The four-time Grammy Award winner is giving the world a glimpse of what goes on behind-the-scenes with an upcoming one-night cinematic event called "Israel Houghton & NewBreed – Covered: Alive in Asia."
"I did what I've always been kind of reluctant to do and that is to turn cameras on and open up my life a little bit more to people. I feel like when I get on stage, I want to really open up a way to God for people as opposed to having them look at me," Houghton told The Christian Post. "It was a challenge for me because I do maintain my privacy a little bit as it relates to my life and my life off the stage." more >>
From the writer of "Rudy" and "Hoosiers" comes "My All American," the inspirational real-life account of University of Texas football player Freddie Steinmark, whose life was cut short by cancer, but whose legacy endures to this day.

News cameras that documented the miraculous rescue of 33 Chilean miners buried 200 stories below ground for 69 days only scratched the surface of what really happened.
Five years after their rescue, "The 33" is a film that unearths the untold stories of faith, hope and love experienced by both the Chilean miners and their loved ones and rescuers above ground.
The new movie, which hits theaters Nov. 13, does not have the overt Christian themes present in recent faith-based box office hits like "Woodlawn" and "War Room." Still, the faith showcased in the big screen adaptation of the miners' true story is undeniable. more >>
Two-time Acadamy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington is best known for his roles in "Glory," "The Preacher's Wife," "Remember the Titans" and "Training Day." But the Hollywood A-lister has sounded more like a pastor when he took to the podium at recent events.
The New York native first made headlines when he appeared as the guest speaker for Dillard University's graduating class this spring. Instead of delivering the standard "the world is your oyster" speech, Washington encouraged graduates to "put God first."
The actor expressed similar sentiments last weekend at the Church of God in Christ's annual "We Care" Charities Banquet in St. Louis, Missouri where he testified of God's faithfulness, even when he has fallen short. more >>
