In an emotional Instagram post, renowned Christian artist Rebecca St. James candidly shared how deeply moved she was by actress Kirrilee Berger’s portrayal of her younger self in the upcoming film “Unsung Hero.”

St. James wrote:

“So incredible to watch the wonderful Kirrilee Berger play myself in Unsung Hero! Watching her film the final scene (this is an onstage shot from that day) brought me to tears. Not many people get to see someone who looks almost EXACTLY like them play their younger self…I’m so thankful I got to witness such a moment in time. And thankful for this powerful movie that I know will touch hearts profoundly with the power of God when it comes out in April!”

She expressed profound appreciation for Berger authentically reenacting her story.

In response, Berger shared:

“I don’t even have the words. I cannot tell you what this means to me. Playing you has been the biggest honor of my career thus far. Every step of the way I just wanted to make you proud. Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for letting me tell your story and share your message. Thank you for everything. You’ve changed my life in a thousand and one ways. Gratitude doesn’t cover it.”

Her words reveal how meaningful and life-changing depicting Rebecca’s early career has been.

This poignant exchange spotlights the resonant impact “Unsung Hero” is poised to make when it releases in theaters on April 26. Directed by Richard Ramsey and Joel Smallbone and distributed by Lionsgate, this film chronicles the real-life journey of the Smallbone family as they build a new life in America and discover their musical destiny after facing immense hardships.
