"I am so happy to be a small part of this extraordinary film and sing this amazing song. The film conveys a powerful message of how three families from three different backgrounds with three different situations come together and help each other in ways that saved and changed their lives," said John Berry. "I encourage you to see this movie. I know it will touch your heart and inspire you, as it did me the first time my friend Chuck Howard (Executive Producer for the film) shared the rough cut with me. It was from that first viewing that I knew I had to be part of sharing this moving story."
“John made the song “Beautifully Broken” real just like the movie,” stated Beautifully Broken Co-writer and song Producer, Chuck Howard. “We are honored he shared his voice for this project.”
"I will not forget the first time I heard John’s voice singing Beautifully Broken. It was one of those times you realize God just did something big and we get to watch it unfold," said "Beautifully Broken" songwriter, Jenny Slate Lee. "I am so very honored that John cut the song, he is one of those bucket list artists that we writer’s dream about. His vocal range is incredible and he is one of those artists that he industry just loves- it’s his heart. Yes, he is a wonderful artist, but he is also a wonderful person."
"John Berry’s rendition of ",Beautifully Broken" embodies the entire message of the film. It reflects hope with heartache as well as hurt and healing," said star actress of "Beautifully Broken," Emily Hahn. :His song spreads light and uplifts all who hear it."
The film brings to the screen an inspiring true story of hope that shines the spotlight on a refugee’s escape, a prisoner’s promise, and a daughter’s painful secret. As three fathers fight to save their families, their lives become intertwined in an unlikely journey across the globe, where they learn the healing power of forgiveness and reconciliation.
