That’s what my wife and I said to each other after seeing I Can Only Imagine

The media has tried to ignore the film – and the song – but their impact on people’s lives is powerful – and growing.

One example: Hollywood, Alabama Police Chief Jason Helper lip-synced the song “I Can Only Imagine” for a Lip Sync Battle initiative sponsored by K9s4Cops…

The video has tallied over 50 million views!

You can watch the lip-sync video on the K9s4Cops Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/K9s4Cops/

Of the song, Helper said it “has been there for me in some of my darkest hours when I was at the lowest points – whether caused by bad decisions or because of things I was dealing with seeing from work – this song would be my ‘go to’ when I needed some uplifting…”

Currently, the total box office earnings of the film are over $85 million … not bad for a movie that only cost $7 million to produce.

Not only that … the film debuted at #1 in sales the first week of its release on DVD in June … ahead of Tomb Raider and Black Panther

And it has remained in the top 3 in total DVD sales in each week since its release.

I Can Only Imagine is a story of pain … redemption … forgiveness … and victory…

It’s the true-life story of Bart Millard – lead singer of the Christian band MercyMe – who grew up with an abusive father who eventually came to Christ late in life.

Bart Millard’s story is emotional … inspirational … and powerful … and the film does a remarkable job of retelling it.
