Ladies, I’m so excited to share this news with you: This year a Christian movie, Alone Yet Not Alone, has been nominated for Best Original Song!
The song “Alone Yet Not Alone” was written by Bruce Broughton with lyrics by Dennis Spiegel. It was sung by Joni Eareckson Tada, who’s actually an author, painter and founder of Joni and Friends, a ministry dedicated to supporting people with disabilities.

Alone Yet Not Alone is based a novel of the same name. Set in the British Colonies in 1755, it tells the true story of two Christian sisters who are taken captive during a period of violence and have to struggle to hold onto their faith. The movie was originally released in 2013, but only in nine cities. However, it’s going to be re-released in theaters on the weekend of June 13.
