Award-winning Christian singer Jeremy Camp is gearing up for the release of a movie about his life that tells the inspiring story of love, loss and faith.
The biopic feature film “I Still Believe” chronicles the story of Camp’s first marriage to Melissa Lynn Henning-Camp who died of ovarian cancer in 2001, less than a year after they were wed.
Country singer Shania Twain plays the role of Camp’s mother opposite actor Gary Sinise who portrays Camp’s father. Actress Britt Robertson portrays Camp’s late wife, Melissa. The role of Camp is performed by New Zealander KJ Apa, who’s best known for his role in the hit TV series “Riverdale.”
The trailer highlights Camp’s journey to finding love, fame and his enduring faith in the midst of an unexpected tragedy. The clip kicks off with Apa as Camp performing at a Harvest Crusade where he stops and asks the audience to pray for healing over the “most special person” in his life, just a week after they discovered she had terminal cancer.
Named after Camp’s popular song of the same name, the movie is an Erwin Brothers production, the same producers behind the blockbuster hit “I Can Only Imagine.” Jon Erwin, Andrew Erwin and producing partner Kevin Downes are hoping to follow the commercial success of their first biopic made about the life of Christian musician Bart Millard, although they never initially intended to do another music film.
“I Still Believe” was produced under the Erwin brothers’ newly-formed studio Kingdom, in association with Lionsgate, and is scheduled for release on Feb. 20.
