By Movieguide® Contributor
Lady A band member Hillary Scott recently celebrated her Grammy nomination for her collaboration with for King & Country.
Scott shared that she was “grateful” that their song “For God is With Us” was nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music/Performance.
“This song is just an important message,” Scott explained. “It’s about the bringer of hope, where we find our hope, and to be able to tell this story and hopefully point others to finding that hope themselves just really is important.”
“Now more than ever the world needs this message,” she continued.
Scott shared that she is “such a fan” of For King & Country “and the way that they share this message and the way that they write about it.”
Scott called her inclusion in the song “a real gift, and I’m grateful.”
This nomination isn’t the only major moment for For King & Country this year. Movieguide® previously reported:
The popular Christian band For King & Country, led by Australian brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone, announced their partnership with Monarch Media for two upcoming feature-length movies.
The Grammy award-winning band’s first project is a documentary called RETURN TO SYDNEY: THE FOR KING & COUNTRY JOURNEY. The movie will highlight the careers of Joel, Luke, and their sister Rebecca St. James.
The Hollywood Reporter reported:
The doc, now in production and directed by brother Ben Smallbone, will use home videos and never-before-seen footage of the band’s two sold-out performances at the Sydney Opera House. Andrea Royer, Steve Barnett and Alan Powell are producing, while Vicky Patel will executive produce along with David Smallbone, Luke Smallbone and Joel Smallbone.
The “God Only Knows” performers will also be featured in the upcoming movie titled UNSUNG HERO. The “family dramedy” follows the Smallbone family as they travel to America as their mother, Helen Smallbone, relies on her faith to raise nine children in a new home.
“With the great partnership of Monarch Media and Radiate Films, we’re inviting you to join our family’s radical journey. With thousands of hours of home camera footage, captivating interviews from key partners and friends and a defining show at Sydney’s Opera House, we’re pulling back the curtain on our lives like never before,” Joel and Luke Smallbone said in a statement.
UNSUNG HERO will feature much of the same creative talent behind PRICELESS, which Ben Smallbone directed.
