Stacked soundtrack for film

The documentary company that released Sara Groves: Just Showed Up for My Own Life in 2006 returns with a new title, The Great Reverse, releasing September 15. The soundtrack for the latest Nomad film, which follows nine young missionaries in West Africa, includes Groves, MercyMe, Jars of Clay, Jon Foreman, Sleeping At Last and Lori Chaffer (of Waterdeep). The songs are interwoven within the reality show-styled flick.

"We were pleasantly surprised with the great reception and reviews of our first film," Backroad Entertainment's Troy Groves (Sara's husband) said in a press release. "That confirmed that these unsanitized stories of faith are needed."

Flyleaf's follow-up

After finding tremendous crossover success with 2005's self-titled debut, Flyleaf is following up with Memento Mori on October 27. The title takes its name from the Latin phrase used to remind people of their mortality, which the band hopes will encourage people to make the most of every moment. The project will be produced by Howard Benson, who also turned in a credit on Skillet's new CD.

Rebecca's latest roles

Though currently on tour in Europe, Rebecca St. James is spending much of her non-travel time putting the finishing touches on a pair of new movies.
