HAPPY TO HAVE GRAMMY AWARD WINNER JOHN WE ARE VERY HAPPY T HAVE GRAMMY AWARD WINNER JOHN BERRY IN STUDIO WITH US TO TALK ABOUT HIS SONG FEATURED IN A NEW MOVIE THAT HITS THEATERS THIS WEEK. WELCOME. THANK YOU. GOOD TO HAVE YOU HERE. WE THINK ABOUT MOVIES AND SOMETIMES WE DON’T ALWAYS THINK ABOUT A SONG OR A SOUNDTRACK. WE CAN HEAR A SONG THAT WE LOVE FROM A MOVIE AND THAT CAN BRING BACK SPECIAL MOMENTS AND EMOTIONS. IT’S PRETTY BIG. HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED WITH BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN? IT CAME TO ME FROM THE PRODUCER CHUCK HOWARD. EVERY SONG I HAVE HAD PLAYED ON THE RADIO, CHUCK PRODUCED EVERY ONE OF THOSE SONGS. HE HAS BEEN MAKING SOME WONDERFUL FILMS. HE CALLED ME UP AND SAID I’VE GOT THIS SONG AND THIS MOVIE. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. I SAW THE ROUGH CUT OF THE FILM. NO MUSIC OR VIDEO6 C13 NO MUSIC AT ALL. IT JUST MOVED ME. THEN I HEARD THE SONG. I KNOW YOU KNOW MUSIC. I WAS READING ABOUT YOUR CAREER AND YOU HAVE AN OUTSTANDING CAREER. YOUR KIND OF A BIG DEAL. YOU HAVE WON A GRAMMY. IT’S BEEN VERY NICE. THEY HAVE BEEN VERY KIND TO ME. LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS FILM. STARTING ON THURSDAY EVENING PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GET TO GO SEE IT. YOU HAVE SEEN THIS MOVIE SEVERAL TIMES. CAN YOU QUICKLY DESCRIBE WHAT IT’S ABOUT? I KNOW IT’S VERY EMOTIONAL. IT STARTS IN 1994 IN RWANDA WHEN THE GENOCIDE HAPPEN AND ALMOST A MILLION PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN 100 DAYS. IT’S THE STORY OF THREE FAMILIES. TWO IN RWANDA AND THE FAMILY IN BRENTWOOD, TENNESSEE. AND HOW GOD WAS THIS TAPESTRY WHERE THEY ALL E EACH OTHER’S LIVES IN DIFFERENT WAYS. SOME ACTUALLY SAVING THEIR LIVES. OTHERS JUST SAVING THEIR FAMILY AND BRINGING THEM BACK TOGETHER. AT THE END OF THE FILM WHEN THOSE THREE MEN ARE STANDING THERE AND THEY REALIZED YOU SAVED ME AND I SAVED HIM AND HE SAVED YOU, I GOT CHILLS ALL OVER. YOU HAVE SEEN IT ABOUT SIX TIMES AND YOU HAVE TEARS IN YOUR EYES EVERY TIME. IT IS SO INSPIRING. A LOT OF US HAVE ONLY SEEN OR READ ABOUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN RWANDA, IN PARTS OF AFRICA. I THINK THERE IS SOMETHING WE CAN ALL RELATE TO OF HARD THINGS HAPPENING IN LIFE. AND LOVING SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY OR SOMEONE ELSE AND JUST FEELING RIPPED APART WHEN THINGS DON’T GO THE WAY WE EXPECT THEM TO. I WAS DOING AN INTERVIEW WITH A DJ THE OTHER DAY. HE SAID THE FILM IS DOING SO WELL AT COUNTRY RADIO. FIRST TIME I HAVE HAD A TOP 40 SONG IN 24 YEARS. WHY DO YOU THINK IT RESONATES WITH PEOPLE. EVERYONE IS BROKEN IN SOME WAY. DREAMS ARE UNFULFILLED. ISSUES WITH YOUR FAMILY. DIFFERENT PERSONAL THINGS THAT JUST NEVER HAPPENED OR HAVE CAUSED BROKENNESS. THIS LYRIC THAT JENNY WROTE, THEY GO, TT’S ME. THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THE WRITER WAS TALKING ABOUT. IT IS SO TRUE. SPEAKING OF A CLIMBING, THE SIGNAL — SINGLE IS NUMBER ONE ON THE CHRISTIAN MUSIC WEEKLY CHART AND IT HAS BEEN FOR FIVE WEEKS. LYRIC THAT JENNY IT’S AT 34 ON MUSIC ROW COUNTRY IT’S AWESOME. OBVIOUSLY IT IS RESONATING WITH PEOPLE. U’RE GOING TO BE AROUND. RESONATING WITH PEOPLE. THERE ARE SPECIAL SHOWINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING THIS EVENING. AND THEN AGAIN. YOU CAN SEE THIS MOVIE. CELEBRATION CINEMA OPENS THURSDAY EVENING. LANSING, GRAND RAPIDS AND MUSKEGON.
