In an extraordinary look at one of country music's biggest stars, the documentary "I'll Be Me" follows Glen Campbell and his family as they cope with the singer's Alzheimer's diagnosis.
Campbell, best known for his hit songs "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Galveston" and "Wichita Lineman," has released 70 albums during his 50-year career in show business, which also includes a supporting role in the original "True Grit" film. However, just as Campbell was preparing to release his 61st album "Ghost on the Canvas" in 2011, it was revealed that the 78-year-old country music legend was suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
Fortunately, Campbell and his wife of almost 30 years, Kim, made the best of what could have ended his career. Instead of going into hiding, the Campbell family decided to not only embark on a "Goodbye Tour," but allowed filmmaker James Keach to chronicle Campbell's life as his dementia worsened as featured in "I'll Be Me." Speaking to The Christian Post, Kim explained her hope that the revealing film raises awareness of Alzheimer's, including its effects on both patients and caregivers. more >>

Alternative rock musician and Dove Award winning Christian Michael Gungor of the musical collective, Gungor, is now calling for unity in Christendom months after being branded a heretic and other names like "twofold son of hell" for challenging the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis in the Bible.
Gungor, the son of a preacher, rattled the Christian community this year when he revealed that he and his wife, Lisa, the faces of the musical collective, don't literally believe in stories from the Bible on such topics as creation and the flood, a departure from orthodox Christian doctrine.
The revelation drew the ire of many Christian fundamentalists who have consumed Gungor music to the point of making some of the collective's popular songs like "Dry Bones" and "Beautiful Things" worship anthems. more >>
