Alone Yet Not Alone to Release Nationwide June 13

Alone But Not AloneAlone Yet Not Alone, which made headlines earlier this year over the rescinded Oscar nomination of the title song sung by Joni Eareckson Tada, will be released in theaters nationwide on June 13.

Based on a novel of the same name, Alone Yet Not Alone tells the inspiring true story of Barbara and Regina Leininger and their journey of faith and survival during the French & Indian War in 1755. Captured by Delaware Indians in a raid on their home and transported through more than 300 miles of wilderness to Ohio, the sisters are sustained only by their abiding trust in God and their hope of escape against all odds to be reunited with their family.

"This inspirational true story is sure to get to your heart and elevate your spirit,” commented Dr. James and Shirley Dobson of FamilyTalk.

“It’s a beautiful film with a strong Christian theme,” added Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO of Joni and Friends.

Earlier this year, Alone Yet Not Alone, which debuted in limited release last September, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song.  Days later, that nomination was rescinded after it became known that Bruce Broughton, who composed the song, had emailed members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ music branch to make them aware of his submission during the nominations voting period.

Despite the news, Tada, who was tapped to sing the song for the film, expressed her gratitude for the attention the nomination brought to the song and the inspirational film behind it, as well as to the ongoing work of Joni and Friends to people affected by disabilities.

“I was humbled and honored to have been asked to sing it for the film, and was as surprised as anyone when I learned of the song’s nomination,” she expressed in a statement.

“It will always be a treasured experience,” she added.

Since the Oscar nomination was rescinded, Tada has been asked to sing the song at various venues including the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN.

Tada and her ministry have been longtime members of NRB. In addition, Tada serves on the association’s Board of Directors.
