"Alone Yet Not Alone", a song recorded by JONI EARECKSON TADA, has had it's OSCAR nomination rescinded due to allegations of improper campaigning by BRUCE BROUGHTON, song composer and current OSCARS executive committee member. BROUGHTON is accused of e-mailing members during the voting period, and asking for voting consideration.
JONI posted this update on her website, "During the last couple of weeks, I've had to occasionally pinch myself and wonder, 'Is the song I recorded Alone Yet Not Alone really up for an OCSAR nomination?!' Well, it turns out that the ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES just rescinded its nomination. But amidst this wild roller coaster of a ride, 'I will praise the LORD more and more. My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long' (Psalm 71:15). Aren't you glad some things don't change?! Like the higher plans of our wonderful, sovereign LORD :-). I am grateful that this media flurry has, no doubt, generated interest in the release of Alone Yet Not Alone which will be out in theaters this JUNE!"
