1/18/2012 - John Waller's New Radio Single Endorsed by Courageous Writer and Director
City of Peace Media has announced that "As For Me And My House," the powerful song from John Waller featured on the Top 10 Courageous movie soundtrack, will go for adds Friday, January 20, as the popular recording artist's next radio single. The song, the title track from Waller's third album, already is garnering accolades, including an enthusiastic endorsement from Alex Kendrick, writer and director of Courageous.
"When I first heard John Waller's song based on Joshua 24:15, I had chills! I listened to it three times in a row and then began sharing it with friends," says Kendrick, who also stars in Courageous, the 2011 independent film from the makers of Fireproof and Facing the Giants, which challenges fathers to model God's values for their children.
Waller, who caught the attention of the world with his song "While I'm Waiting" from the No. 1 independent film of 2008, Fireproof, continues to boldly proclaim the Word of God in his latest single. Using Joshua 24:15 as the foundation, the song and the companion video confronts the "spirit of this age" (Acts 17:22-23), and the idols of money and power, sexual immorality, powerless religion, pornography, and drugs and alcohol while providing God's solution: "As For Me And My House, we shall serve the Lord" (Joshua 24:15).
"For me, this is a long-awaited release, but I believe God's perfect timing. "As For Me and My House" is our family's declaration for 2012 and for life," Waller says. "I'm believing the message of the song is going to impact many lives."
The title track, offered as a free download to those who sign the Joshua 24:15 Declaration at Waller's website, highlights the album's theme of declaring our allegiance to God and restoring the focus to family values. The music video version of "As For Me and My House" has more than 298,000 views on YouTube so far. To sign the Declaration and to view the video, visit johnwallermusic.com.
"I asked that it be included on the soundtrack CD of our recent film Courageous, as the lyrics and message aligned perfectly with the plot and theme of the movie," says Kendrick. "I did this because I can tell that God gave John this song. It drips with power and sincerity. It is the kind of song that people will rally around and use as a banner for their faith and convictions.
