“Unsung Hero” will tell the story of Rebecca St. James, for King + Country

Following the success of “Jesus Revolution” and “Sound of Freedom,” another major faith-based film will be in theaters next spring. “Unsung Hero” will tell the story how the family behind Christian band For King + Country and Rebecca St. James made their way to the United States and the entertainment world.

“When David Smallbone’s successful music company collapses, he moves his family from Down Under to the States, searching for a brighter future,” according to the movie synopsis. “With nothing more than their seven children, suitcases and their love of music, David and his pregnant wife Helen set out to rebuild their lives.”

Unsung Hero,” which stars Joel Smallbone, Daisy Betts, Candace Cameron Bure, Kirrilee Berger, Jonathan Jackson, Lucas Black, Terry O’Quinn and Hillary Scott, offers a powerful look at how reliance on God guided the family toward their destiny.

“Helen’s faith stands against all odds and inspires her husband and children to hold onto theirs,” the synopsis said. “With their own dreams on hold, David and Helen begin to realize the musical prowess in their children, who would go on to become two of the most successful acts in Inspirational Music history — five-time Grammy Award-winning artists for King + Country and Rebecca St. James.”

Helen Smallbone said God guided her after the family came to the United States with absolutely nothing and catapulted them onto national and international stages.

“America was sort of the land of opportunity,” she said. “At this point, we were living hand to mouth. We knew we had nothing much behind us, financially. We had no family anymore, minimal friends, work acquaintances, but that was about it.”

But through faith and perseverance, the family sustained itself and found massive success. Smallbone said she knows great responsibility comes along with the family’s public ministry and work. “There is a great responsibility under God that you honor God and finish strong,” she said. “And that has been spoken about within the home to everybody.”
