I was recently selected for an Exclusive Online Screening of a truly heart touching movie that I suggest
anyone should see EVERYONE WATCH (not to be a “spoiler” but be sure you have a box of tissues in your lap). Although I don’t know anyone with Alzheimer’s disease, I do know first hand that loving someone battling a force you can’t control is heart-breaking…I am married to an “addict” so watching this movie was, well…very tough for me…but I’m truly GLAD I did & can’t wait to get it on DVD if it becomes available!!! I feel that God gave me the opportunity for a reason.and Glen’s family showed me that I’m not alone. as other families battle life’s obstacles, sometimes worse than my/your own. Now a little about the movie:
From the producer of ‘Walk the Line’…GLEN CAMPBELL…I’LL BE ME:
an epic human drama about the undying bond between Glen & his wife, Kim, the strength of true love, and the power of song. As music legend Glen Campbell enters the final stages of Alzheimer’s disease, his family is giving the world a rare glimpse inside his battle with the disease.
~A true tale of how America’s greatest country star would not give up his music or his family, against all odds.~
In 2011, when Glen Campbell, aka The Rhinestone Cowboy, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he joined forces with his family to fight the biggest battle of his life. Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the diagnosis – the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world. The Campbell family then embarked on a short “Goodbye Tour,” but the three-week engagement turned into an emotional and triumphant 151-show nationwide tour de force. With joy and a tireless sense of humor, Glen and his family live each moment in the present while preparing for the future, all while playing their music to sold out venues on a star spangled voyage spanning the country from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl.
As a solo artist, Glen has recorded some of the most beloved songs of his generation including Gentle On My Mind, Galveston and Rhinestone Cowboy. He has been awarded five Grammy Awards and three Grammy Hall of Fame honors, seven Academy of Country Music awards, a Pioneer Award recognition, three American Music Awards, two Country Music Association Awards and three Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Glen Campbell has crossed the boundary between pop and country and transcended into a true musical icon. Glen Campbell’s musical and entertainment career, covering nearly five decades, is unmatched for its prolific breadth, popular appeal – and flat-out musical accomplishment and achievement. His guitar playing is legendary and can be heard on classic tracks from Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds, to Frank Sinatra’s, Strangers in the Night.
On Feb 12, 2012 Glen performed on the Grammy Awards, to an audience of 39 million people, and was given the distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award.
***The film features those who know and love Glen, including Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Taylor Swift among many others. Rare vintage footage and extraordinary new performances of Glen’s most beloved hits immerse this moving cinematic account in the overwhelming talent of this humble family man.***
