Christian Movie Connect host, Cheryl Ariaz Wicker, had an opportunity to speak with Alan Powell earlier about his leading role in the Richard Ramsey film, “The Song”. Powell, a member of the Christian band, Anthem Lights, was a wonderful fit for a story about a musician. His previous acting experience is as a rodeo clown in comedy-adventure, “Charlie & Boots”.
In his starring role, Alan Powell is singer/songwriter Jed King in “The Song”, a film based on “Song of Solomon” from the Bible. Jed is the son of a famous musician, but wants to his talent to become his claim to fame. He reluctantly agrees to perform at a local vineyard harvest festival, where me meets and eventually marries the vineyard owner’s daughter, Rose. Early in the marriage, Jed writes “The Song” for Rose which becomes a break-out hit and capitulates Jed into the spotlight. Dreams of fame and fortune come true, but bring tempation with them, causing his life and his marriage to crumble.
“The Song” will be released on DVD on Feb. 10, 2015. To find out more, visit the website at www.thesongmovie.com
