Vocalist Christy Sutherland discusses her life lessons and role in film Welcome to Inspiration.
WELCOME TO INSPIRATION has a loving message of faith, family and fun. It speaks to planting seeds, discipleship, self-study, and hopes to spark a moving experience through cinema in the hearts of its audience.
Based on the popular and much buzzed-about book The Street Sweeper by Tim Enochs, Welcome to Inspiration brings a small town to life on the big screen. Releasing January 20 to DVD, Welcome to Inspiration is a family film with a musical heart starring a cast of well-known Christian and country artists, including GRAMMY® Award-winners Jason Crabb and Larry Gatlin, as well as Vocalist/Composer Christy Sutherland. Additional cast members include Jackie Stewart (Slingblade, A Time to Kill) as The Street Sweeper and Regina McCrary of The McCrary Sisters.
The film follows the true-to-life story lines of people searching for meaning in the midst of unfulfilled dreams, challenging circumstances and unexpected struggles. When a big city couple find themselves stranded in a small town, their lives are changed forever. A chance encounter with a Street Sweeper opens their eyes to inspirational life lessons that come alive through the town’s residents: a widow coping with the death of her soldier daughter, a small business owner rescuing a young runaway, a mechanic finding faith and a young musician bravely pursuing his dream. Like Enochs’ book, the movie reveals seven Bible-based principles, which Enochs dubs the “Seven Revelations of Irrefutable Success” that point toward a life of increased spiritual fulfillment.
