Thank you to all the listeners who joined NewLife FM for The Solomon Bunch red carpet premiere at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough! We certainly had a fun time and enjoyed promoting this wonderful family and faith-based film directed by Jason Prisk and produced by Creekside Christian Academy in association with Pinecrest Baptist Church.
We also want to say thank you to all the wonderful folks who signed up for our gift package at the NewLife FM display. The winner will be notified shortly.
To those of you who were unable to attend, the evening kicked off with the red carpet walk where the audience was introduced to the cast and crew of The Solomon Bunch. Both my daughters were in attendance with me, and my youngest daughter kept tell me she wanted to dress up like a princess and have the emcee announce her name and everybody clap for her as she walked the red carpet. How do you explain to a three-year-old that you have to be in the movie first in order to get credit? LOL. Fortunately for us I was able to sneak her onto the red carpet for a photo after the show.
Before the movie was shown, the audience enjoyed a bluegrass performance by special guests The Watkins Family from Toccoa, Randall Franks from Ringgold. Franks is an award winning bluegrass artist who played with bluegrass greats Bill Monroe, Jim and Jesse, and southern gospel artists Jeff and Sheri Easter. He played on “In the Heat of the Night” as well as other films with Dolly Parton and Christian Slater.
The Solomon Bunch was a fantastic film and everyone involved did such a great job. What a great film for any parent to add to their DVD collection. There is also a related book series being published — I believe the first book is now available. For the DVD and merchandise pertaining to this film you can visit www.TheSolomonBunch.com
