Four-time Emmy award-winning TV personality, actress, and best-selling author Kathie Lee Gifford has teamed up with a group of performing artists on a debut new musical production, THE WAY, a special one-night event coming to theaters Thursday, September 1.
The film highlights key Biblical stories in a modern way by presenting them with contemporary orchestral arrangements, powerful narration, touching visuals and an all-star group of artists including Nicole C. Mullen, Danny Gokey, Jimmie Allen, Larry Gatlin, BeBe Winans and more. The idea of this set of oratorios and hit songwriters merges the ancient with the modern – bringing to life biblical stories with contemporary orchestral arrangements, powerful narration, and touching visuals.
“I am so excited to bring these extraordinary, epic stories to life on the big screen,” said producer Kathie Lee Gifford. “Today’s culture tends to view the Bible as an ancient text that is no longer relevant, but my hope is that this film, with modern music and visual storytelling, will reignite the passion for truth in today’s culture and in a younger generation.”
Moving stories from the Bible brought to life as you’ve never seen before written by four-time Emmy award-winning TV personality, actress, and best-selling author Kathie Lee Gifford, and hit songwriters Brett James, Louis York, David Pomeranz, Nicole C. Mullen, and Sal Oliveri. This set of oratorios merges the ancient with the modern – bringing to life biblical stories with contemporary orchestral arrangements, powerful narration, and touching visuals.
Over the course of 4 movements spanning 75 minutes, these pieces revolve around Kathie Lee as our narrator, a symphony orchestra, and a cast of musical stars singing tailor-made roles such as Nicole C. Mullen, Danny Gokey, Jimmie Allen, Larry Gatlin, and BeBe Winans.
Kathie Lee Gifford has also teamed up with Rabbi Jason Sobel on a new book coming out this fall, The God of the Way: A Journey into the Stories, People, and Faith That Changed the World Forever. Gifford and Sobel partner once again to connect ancient truths to the lives of today’s readers in this companion book to the film.
