Steven Curtis Chapman & We the Kingdom have released the lead single from the movie soundtrack Journey To Bethlehem. "Brand New Life," a country-pop tune, celebrates the new life Jesus gives to us as a result of his birth and death. You can listen to the song below and HERE.
Journey To Bethlehem (which will be in theaters on Nov. 10) tells the story about a young woman carrying an unimaginable responsibility. A young man torn between love and honor.
