Lionsgate Sets Dec. 7 Home Release Date for ‘Jesus Music’ Documentary

Lionsgate has scheduled a multi-platform Dec. 7 release for the documentary The Jesus Music.

The film will be issued on Blu-ray Disc and DVD and also become available for digital purchase.

The documentary chronicles the “Jesus Music” movement, which arose from America’s 1960s counterculture to become a worldwide phenomenon. The documentary follows the movement from its humble beginnings at the Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, Calif., through its transformation into the multimillion-dollar industry of Christian Contemporary music.

The film features interviews with the genre’s biggest stars, including Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, TobyMac and Kirk Franklin.

The Jesus Music was released theatrically in October.

Lionsgate, in partnership with The Kingdom Story Company, previously released I Can Only Imagine and I Still Believe with The Erwin Brothers. Next up after The Jesus Music is American Underdog, which opens theatrically on Christmas Day.
