Inspirational Feature Film ‘Beautifully Broken’ to Screen at NRB Program 2018 Conference
(Nashville, Tenn. – February 26, 2018) ACM, CMA, and Grammy award-winning Country artist, John Berry, has released the title track for Big Film Factory’s exhilarating new feature film, Beautifully Broken to radio. The song, which features heartfelt lyrics, is perfectly paired with the compelling film that tells the riveting true story of three families, worlds apart, whose paths seem unlikely to cross. Each family faces a crisis beyond their control and is forced to make difficult decisions. Those decisions set in motion a series of events that leads to their lives becoming intertwined in ways they could have never predicted or imagined. Their journeys reveal the divine tapestry of God’s love and guidance, and they learn firsthand the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. Fans can view the trailer at beautifullybrokenmovie.com.

John Berry commented, “I received a text from my friend and producer Chuck Howard saying, ‘I have a song you need to sing’ followed by a rough edit of the film ‘Beautifully Broken.’ I watched the film and was moved to tears… I called Chuck and told him, ‘I’m sure the song is great and I look forward to hearing it, but regardless of the song, I want to be a part of this film any way he could use me; people need to see this film!’ Of course, the song is an amazing work in and of its self, but this song in this film, wow! It was such an honor to sing and be a small part of this story. “
