Unsung Hero

Russ Matthews & Laura Bennett attended the Sydney Premeire with the family of For King and Country and had a thrilling night. Yet, the film took the whole experience to the next level. This wonderful story will captivate anyone who comes along. The Samllbones journey from Australia to the United States proved to be one of faith, family and fatherhood.

Film Summary: Based on a remarkable true story, Unsung Hero follows David Smallbone as he moves his family from Down Under to the States, searching for a brighter future after his successful music company collapses. With nothing more than their seven children, suitcases, and their love of music, David (for KING + COUNTRY’s Joel Smallbone) and his pregnant wife Helen (Daisy Betts) set out to rebuild their lives. Helen’s faith stands against all odds and inspires her husband and children to hold onto theirs. With their own dreams on hold, David and Helen begin to realise the musical prowess in their children, who would go on to become two of the most successful acts in Inspirational Music history: five-time GRAMMY Award®-winning artists for KING + COUNTRY and Rebecca St. James.
