FATHOM EVENTS BRINGS ‘RUSS TAFF: I STILL BELIEVE’ TO MOVIE THEATERS NATIONWIDE OCTOBER 30, 2018

DENVER—From Fathom Events and Fuseic Entertainment comes the compelling documentary “Russ Taff: I Still Believe,” chronicling the multi-GRAMMY® and Dove Award-winning star’s unparalleled musical journey and behind-the-scenes battle with alcoholism.

Playing in cinemas nationwide October 30, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. local time, this one-night inspirational event is not-to-be-missed. Immediately following the film, theater audiences will have the opportunity to view a special acoustic session with Taff and his friend, multi-GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman.

Tickets for “Russ Taff: I Still Believe” can be purchased at FathomEvents.com and participating theater box offices. 

Fathom Events and Fuseic Entertainment present “Russ Taff: I Still Believe” in nearly 600 select movie theaters on October 30 through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). For a complete list of theater locations, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Acclaimed director Rick Altizer (“Chonda Pierce: Laughing in the Dark”) traces Taff’s iconic four-decade career, as well as the childhood trauma he suffered at the hands of an alcoholic father and abusive mother.

Unable to overcome his shame for many years, Taff turned to alcohol, distancing his family, threatening his career and jeopardizing his life. In “Russ Taff: I Still Believe” the award-winning Gospel singer candidly reveals how a tumultuous past fueled his own addiction and the ultimate healing he embraced in the power of Christ’s love and forgiveness. “I Still Believe” also shines an important spotlight on Taff’s wife of 42 years, Tori. Her tough love, fervent prayers and unfailing devotion helped her husband find freedom from his past through God’s mercy.

The film includes appearances from such legendary artists and entertainers as Amy Grant, MercyMe’s Bart Millard, Michael W. Smith, Newsboys’ Michael Tait, Bill Gaither, and comedians Mark Lowry and Chonda Pierce. 

“In this feature, Russ Taff highlights a very important issue—alcoholism—and his journey to overcome that addiction,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “Events like this offer people the opportunity to reflect on their lives and begin to have conversations around a very real cultural issue.”

Dove and Grammy Award winning Christian artist Michael English begins a new journey after 5 years with Gaither Vocal Band

For immediate release (November 1, 2013)

With prayerful consideration and after 5 award winning years with Southern Gospel super group, the Gaither Vocal Band, lead vocalist Michael English has decided to step away from the group to pursue other opportunities.

English says, "It was difficult to juggle two careers and I needed more time at home... off the road."

This move will give Michael more time to dedicate to his solo tour, sharing his testimony, and recording and producing with other artists as well.

"The last 5 years with the GVB have been very enjoyable for me and I will miss the guys. This was a very difficult decision but one I feel at peace with. It will be a new day for Michael English but one I am very excited about. Hope to see many of you at solo shows in the future!"

Log onto Michael’s website at www.michaelenglishmusic.com to view his current touring schedule. We are beginning to book solo shows for 2014 and they are going fast!
