I Can Only Imagine the movie about the making of the song by Mercy Me is a campaign through Flyby Promotion. All opinions are my own.
I remember the first time I heard the song I Can Only Imagine by Mercy Me. I was sitting in youth group and the song came on. It really got me to thinking and I loved the song. I was at the age where I was trying to figure out this thing called Life. This song had me thinking what it would be like to meet Jesus in Heaven.
The movie is the behind the scenes look at how the song was written. The song was written by lead singer of Mercy Me, Bart Millard.
Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for Bart. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury—combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential—set Bart on a musical pathway.
Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road on an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe—named for his grandmother’s favorite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined.
Having a favorite song and then learning how that song came to be is an exciting event that we do not get to have very often. I am so looking forward to taking my teenager to see this movie.
