GOSPEL MUSIC CHANNEL will premiere its movie "THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS" on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4th. The movie features CANDACE CAMERON BURE ("FULL HOUSE"), SPARROW RECORDS artist MATTHEW WEST, ERIN BETHEA ("FIREPROOF") and GEORGE NEWBERN ("FATHER OF THE BRIDE") among others.
The movie was inspired by MATTHEW WEST's holiday music video, "One Last Christmas," released last year. Based on a true story that made national news, the movie follows a community in WASHINGTON, IL, that decorated their houses for CHRISTMAS several weeks early in honor of DAX LOCKE, a 2-year-old boy battling a rare form of leukemia. WEST had heard LOCKE's story, wrote the song and eventually raised over $205,000 for ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL where LOCKE was treated.
Songs from MATTHEW WEST's new CHRISTMAS album "THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS" will be heard throughout the movie. The album's title track is also his current holiday radio single.
