Amber Nelon Thompson Mega Fest 2017 Screening For Film 'A Question Of Faith'

MegaFest 2017 Drew to a Close with an Overwhelming Turnout at the Screening Event for Silver Lining Entertainment's Film

The highly anticipated faith-based film releases in theaters on September 29, 2017

LOS ANGELES – July 10, 2017 – On Saturday, July 1st, 2017, Silver Lining Entertainment presented their faith-based film, A Question of Faith, as the closing film at MegaFest 2017, the internationally acclaimed four-day faith, film and family festival. With more than 1000 MegaFest attendees coming out to see the film, the turnout far exceeded expectations.  Although they were able to accommodate 690 people, organizers had to close the A Question of Faith screening doors and regretfully turn away hundreds.  Cast members Richard T. Jones, Kim Fields, T. C. Stallings, Donna Biscoe, Amber Nelon Thompson and Marliss Amiea were all in attendance for the red carpet screening and Q & A.  Actor Blair Underwood and music artists Fred Hammond and Erykah Badu were also in attendance.

When the film ended, the audience erupted with an exuberant applause and standing ovation as an expression of how much they enjoyed the performances and the inspiring message of the film.  Immediately after, producers and cast members took to the stage for a discussion and to answer questions from the attendees.  Grateful to all who came out, the film’s producer Angela White states, "Attending MegaFest with 'A Question of Faith' was a life changing experience for me.  To witness the vision that I conceived grow into something that I can now introduce to the world, and be warmly received by hundreds of people, is nothing short of inspiring."  She adds, "From the attendees who cried, laughed and rejoiced, it exceeded my expectations and galvanized the entire team to continue pushing Christian films further into the marketplace."

One of the biggest moments of the evening was when guests were treated to a brief impromptu moving vocal performance by the talented Christian music artist Amber Nelon Thompson.  "This was my first time attending MegaFest and I was overwhelmed at the magnitude of the event," shares the Daywind Records Recording Artist.  "I was honored to be representing the film A Question of Faith, and I’m thankful to Bishop T.D. Jakes for allowing faith-based films to be screened at the event.  It was truly amazing to see the excitement of the attendees and we hope that they'll spread the word so others can join in that excitement!"

A Question of Faith tells a moving story of three families from different cultures, who live in the same community; they are complete strangers living vastly separate lives until a texting and driving accident thrusts them onto converging paths where they discover God's love, forgiveness, grace and mercy.

Along with a strong message of faith, the talented and well-known cast delivers a compelling storyline that touches on timely topics such as racial prejudice, the consequences of texting and driving, and it also addresses the debate surrounding organ donation.  The producers expect the film to resonate strongly amongst churches and it also features a strong Gospel music soundtrack throughout.

A Question of Faith stars Richard T. Jones ("Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married," "Judging Amy"), Kim Fields ("Living Single," "What to Expect When You're Expecting"), C. Thomas Howell ("The Amazing Spiderman," "E.T."), GregAlan Williams ("Greenleaf," "All Saints"), Jaci Velasquez ("I'm Not Ashamed," Platinum Christian Recording Artist) Renee O'Connor ("Xena:  Warrior Princess"), T.C. Stallings ("War Room," "Courageous"), Amber Nelon Thompson, Donna Biscoe, Karen Valero and Marliss Amiea and is written by Ty Manns, directed by Kevan Otto, executive produced by Cameron Lewis, producer, Lisa Diane Washington, and is produced by Angela White of Silver Lining Entertainment.  The film is scheduled to release on September 29, 2017 via Pure Flix Entertainment.

Lovelace stated, "When we rehearsed the musical for the first time with the choir, I was blown away!  Their hearts, voices and blend were impeccable!  Their worship and enthusiasm were more than infectious.  It was obvious that Joey had worked diligently with his choir.  When they presented the musical to choir and worship leaders that evening, God was glorified."

Lovelace continued, "I want to thank Mike Harlan of LifeWay Worship for this great opportunity to present, Miracle in a Manger, in this way.  Our desire is for churches of all sizes to consider this musical as a means to present the Christmas story of our Savior’s incredible journey from the manger to our hearts."

Joey Gore, Director of the Wilmington Celebration Choir shared, "We were so honored when Rick Shelton from Daywind Records/Publishing called us a few months ago and asked us to premiere this Christmas musical written by our good friend Tim Lovelace.  Everything fell into place on Wednesday night and the audience was moved into worship.  The Wilmington Celebration Choir has been blessed so much this year with God continually opening "new" doors of ministry opportunities.  I am looking forward to what is next!"

Denise Combs shared this story of the generosity and heart for ministry that another couple, the Coker’s have for Michael Combs.  "Many of you have heard Michael share at his concerts about the beginning years of Michael Combs Ministry.  About the couple out of our home church in Jacksonville, FL that paid for Michael to record his first album 'Never A Greater Love' in 1990 in Nashville, TN.  Not only did they pay for the recording but they paid all expenses there and back home for both us.  Not to long ago Michael was performing and sharing that story and in the audience there they sat.  Words cannot even explain what it meant to see them both worshiping the Lord while Michael was singing a song they paid for him to record.  Warren and Rietta Coker, we can never tell you in words what you mean to us.  Thank you all those years ago for investing in Michael Combs Ministries.  You are part of every soul that is saved.  We Love You Both!"

In other news, Combs' first radio release "That Same Hand" from his latest album, I Can Trust Him, was selected by Paul Heil of The Gospel Greats as "The Listener Favorite Song" and was the introductory song for his program during the "All Listener Favorites" edition on the weekend on February 18, 2017.  Fans and industry can listen weekly to Paul's live program on the internet at www.thegospelgreats.com or listen to The Gospel Greats on your local Gospel station.

About Michael Combs

After squandering many years living in the World and nearly destroying my life with drugs and alcohol, something wonderful happened in my life....or better yet SOMEONE wonderful happened to GIVE me life...His name is Jesus!

I gave my life to Christ on a Monday night during a revival meeting in Jacksonville, Florida. That night was February 6th, 1989.

Since that night many things have happened!  Almost immediately God put me into a Ministry of Music!  Never thought I would be doing what I've been doing for the last 25 years but now I can't imagine myself doing anything else!

There have been some valleys.  I was dying of Liver Disease when The Lord rescued me.  However, God not only saved my soul and placed within me a new heart....he gave me a new Liver too!  I had a Liver Transplant on September 9th, 1991 at The University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

The Lord has allowed me to write and record songs that some call "classics" today.  Many are sung in local Churches on any given Sunday.  Lots of folks tell me they hear my songs sung at numerous Gospel Music Talent Contests.  (What an honor!)

I've been blessed to have traveled this country with my beautiful wife, Denise, for 25 years (and counting!).  I not only get to share the songs....but my testimony as well!  We have been blessed to see hundreds give their hearts to Jesus in our Services!

Maybe one day we will get the opportunity to share this Ministry of Song and Testimony with you and your people...with your Community........with the Whole World!
