The movie takes place in the years 1991-mid to late 1990s, and chronicles the real life collapse of their father David Smallbone’s successful music company based in Australia.

The family moved from Australia to Tennesee, where they struggled until teenage Rebecca was discovered by Eddie DeGarmo, successful on his own as half of “DeGarmo and Key”.

With partner Dana Key, popular throughout the late 1970s-mid-1990s, their biggest hit was “Destined To Win”; how appropriate for the story of the once struggling Smallbone family.

GH Spoilers – Honored To Be A Part

Jonathan considers it an honor to be a part of such a meaningful and inspirational film about the importance of family, and family members believing in and supporting one another.

David and Helen Smallbone held on to her strong faith as the family struggled in the days before young Rebecca’s success, inspiring her family to hang onto theirs.

Besides the two boys and Rebecca, there were another girl and three more boys-financially, things finally turn around in the mid-1990s with Rebecca’s discovery and her record album in 1994.

Jonathan’s look was fully approved of by Rebecca’s brother Joel, who also directed the film and quipped, “Bold move with the hair, Jackson” and Jonathan loved it!

The movie, produced by Joel Smallbone and released by Lionsgate and Kingdom Story Company, also stars Lucas Black and Candace Cameron Bure as Jed and Kay Albright.

They should be familiar to NCIS and Hallmark Movie fans, and Donny Most plays Pierce, formerly on Happy Days as Ralph Malph; Joel Smallbone plays his dad David.

Rebecca St. James herself has a cameo as a flight attendant, and other real life people important to her career are included in addition to Jonathan as Eddie.

DeGarmo and Key also were important in Amy Grant’s career (Rachel Hendrix in the movie) and Carman, who young Rebecca first toured with at age 12 is played by Joe Chambrello.

By the time Eddie signed Rebecca, DeGarmo and Key had broken up so that may be why there’s no mention of Dana in the movie.
