The highly-anticipated fifth film from Alex and Stephen Kendrick, the award-winning creators of Fireproof, Courageous and Facing the Giants, War Room will debut in theaters nation-wide through Sony Pictures Entertainment’s TriStar Pictures August 28. Prior to the movie debut, Waller performed “Crazy Faith,” as well as walked the Red Carpet along with the Kendrick brothers, at the movie’spremiere in Atlanta, GA yesterday.
“I knew when I heard ‘Crazy Faith‘ it would be the perfect song for War Room and would inspire people all over the nation!” exclaims Alex Kendrick as he prepares for the movie debut.
In addition to the film, “Crazy Faith” is gathering significant attention at radio.
“John Waller’s song ‘Crazy Faith‘ hits home with those moments in our lives where we’ve have had to make that leap of faith and trust God,” says Rob Langer of “The Morning Cruise” on The Joy FM (Atlanta.) “John’s awesome lyrics reaffirm that God is always with us when He calls us out of our comfort zone! It truly takes that ‘Crazy Faith‘ in Him!”
“John Waller’s brilliantly catchy song, ‘Crazy Faith,’ calls us to more than just placing our trust in what is easy to believe, but to a level of faith in Jesus the world might call ‘crazy’!” adds Centricity recording artist, Aaron Shust.
Bill Lurwick, program director of Christian Music Broadcasters (CMB) Small Market Station of the Year WKNZ 88.7 The Bridge (Milford, DE), goes on to say that other radio programmers that haven’t already added “Crazy Faith” to rotation, will, after seeingWar Room, think to themselves, “That John Waller song ‘Crazy Faith‘ from the movie is stuck in my head. Like big time. Why didn’t I add it earlier when I had the chance, and all my cume that’s now seeing the movie would remember that they first heard it on our station?”
Playing the new single and other music from Crazy Faith while on tour, as well as performing fan favorites like “While I’m Waiting” and “As for Me and My House,” songs he wrote that are featured in the hit movies Fireproof and Courageous respectively, Waller will also give away tickets to War Room during select tour dates this month.
