Remixes of for King & Country, Amy Grant, Others in New Netflix Movie

The music of Christian artists for King & Country, Michael W Smith, Amy Grant, and Steven Curtis Chapman have found new outlets to broadcast into the culture.

A Week Away is a Netflix production; a family-friendly, lightly faith-based movie, made in the style of Highschool Musical.  Common Sense Media calls A Week Away "a camp-set Christian musical with messages about following rules, fitting in, and leaning on your faith to help with life's struggles."

While not specifically a Christian film (Jesus is only mentioned once in the movie), the marketing to the faith community was deliberate.  Netflix inserted new mixes of iconic Christian songs from for King & Country, Michael W Smith, Amy Grant, and Steven Curtis Chapman.

As of this writing, the movie trailer video has received close to 1.5 million views. 

Movie Synopsis:
Troubled teen Will Hawkins (Kevin Quinn) has a run-in with the law that puts him at an important crossroad: go to juvenile detention or attend a Christian summer camp. At first a fish-out-of-water, Will opens his heart, discovers love with a camp regular (Bailee Madison), and sense of belonging in the last place he expected to find it.
