By Labor Day, more than two million people are anticipated to have heard the title track and first radio/video single from John Waller's album, Crazy Faith, through the hit movie, War Room. US News & World Report says the "faith-based War Room dazzles" as it garners the second biggest box office debut this week, just behind Straight Outta Compton. Scenes from War Room can be seen now in Waller's "Crazy Faith" music video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhG95crQxFU. Waller's full Crazy Faith album is also available now at physical and digital retailers everywhere through City of Peace Media and Capitol Christian Distribution.
 
The fifth film from Alex and Stephen Kendrick, the award-winning creators of Fireproof, Courageous and Facing the Giants, War Room made its debut Aug. 28 in theaters nation-wide through Sony Pictures Entertainment's TriStar Pictures.
 
"This is by far the Kendrick brothers' finest work, and I can't believe I get to be a part of it," says Waller. "Alex and Stephen have been so gracious to bring me along for the ride."
 
"I knew when I heard 'Crazy Faith' it would be the perfect song for War Room and would inspire people all over the nation!" exclaimed Alex Kendrick as he prepared for the movie debut.
 
The song "Crazy Faith" was written by Waller following a series of events that led him and his wife, Josee, to adopt three children. While going through the adoption process, the couple also discovered they were pregnant with their sixth biological child.
 
"We were excited when God laid it on our hearts to adopt a child and we knew it would take faith, but when one child turned into three, and then with a new baby on the way, it was a whole other level of faith," shares Waller. "It was 'crazy faith!'"
 
"Each person has his or her own challenges, life issues, and difficulties, and if we could pull back the curtain and see backstage into the real lives of each person, you would see a more accurate picture," continues Waller. "You would see how people really get through their daily lives, the decisions they make, and even the 'why' behind the choices they make. Ultimately, when everything is stripped away, it comes down to FAITH."
 
In addition to the film, "Crazy Faith" is gathering significant attention at radio. Next week (Sept. 9), Waller will travel to Orlando to connect with radio programmers, sharing his 'crazy faith' story during Christian Music Broadcasters' premiere event, Momentum 2015. He will also be playing the new single and other music from Crazy Faith while on tour, as well as perform fan favorites like "While I'm Waiting" and "As for Me and My House," songs he wrote that are featured in the hit movies Fireproof and Courageous respectively.

From his early days leading the critically acclaimed band, According to John, to his impactful ministry as a solo artist, John Waller has continually used his gifts as a singer and songwriter to inspire, educate and encourage the body of Christ. Waller continues to articulate what it means to live a God-centered life in a turbulent world with "Crazy Faith."
 
Faith is the key inspiration for all new and original songs on Waller's upcoming album, Crazy Faith. His first new album in four years, the recording features not only the title track, but the compelling anthems "I Know My God" and "The Orphan Song," as well as live bonus tracks of "While I'm Waiting" and "As For Me And My House."
