I'M SO EXCITED.

GOD IS SO GOOD.

Efrem: AND THOSE ARE

YOUR TOP FIVE FROM "STUDIO

5."

> CHRISTY BEAM WROTE THE

BOOK THAT INSPIRED THE

FAME "MIRACLES FROM

FILM "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN."

CHRISTY IS SITTING DOWN

WITH US, BUT, FIRST, HERE

IS A LOOK AT THE MAKING OF

THE MOVIE.

CHRISTY BEAM WATCHES

CLOSELY AS THE PAGES OF

HER BOOK, "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN," COME TO LIFE ON

THIS FILM SET.

THIS IS THE AMAZING STORY

OF HER DAUGHTER, ANNABELLE

ANNABELLE'S, HEALING FROM

A DEADLY DIGESTIVE ORDER.

WE DON'T KNOW WHAT OUR

SCHEDULE IS GOING TO BE

WITH THE DOCTOR.

WE JUST HAVE TO BE

AVAILABLE.

Efrem: ACTRESS

JENNIFER GARNER PLAYS

CHRISTY, A ROLE SHE

PERSONALLY CALLS

TRANSFORMATIVE.

MY INITIAL THOUGHTS

WERE, I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

TO THINK.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF I COULD,

ON A BASIC LEVEL, BELIEVE

THE STORY.

AND AT THE SAME TIME, I

WAS SO MOVED BY IT, I JUST

WANTED TO KNOW MORE.

YOU'RE TELLING ME WHEN

THIS BABY GIRL FELL

30 FEET, SHE HIT HER HEAD

JUST RIGHT AND IT DIDN'T

KILL HER AND IT DIDN'T

PARALYZE HER?

IT HEALED HER?

YES.

Efrem: WE WATCHED THE

FILM WITH ANNA AND HER

FAMILY IN TEXAS.

IS WHAT HAPPENED WHAT YOU

PRAYED FOR?

I DIDN'T EXACTLY PRAY

FOR IT, BUT I JUST KNEW I

WAS TIRED OF DEALING WITH

IT.

AND I DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE

TO DEAL WITH IT ANYMORE.

BUT I WASN'T, LIKE, OH, I

HOPE I FALL IN A TREE AND

GET HEALED.

THERE IS SOMETHING

WRONG WITH OUR LITTLE

GIRL.

YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN.

NO.

YOU CALM DOWN.

YOU FIND ME ANOTHER

DOCTOR.

YOU PERFORM MORE TESTS.

I'M NOT LEAVING THIS

HOSPITAL UNTIL I KNOW WHAT

IS WRONG WITH MY DAUGHTER.

Efrem: WHEN YOU MET

CHRISTY BEAM AND THOUGHT,

I'M GOING TO BRING THIS

WOMAN'S LIFE ON FILM, WHAT

DID YOU THINK YOU HAD TO

BRING TO SCREEN.

IT WAS VERY, VERY

IMPORTANT TO ME THAT WE

BROUGHT TO SCREEN WHAT I

SAW IN REAL LIFE, WHICH

WAS THE ENORMOUS LOVE

BETWEEN THIS FAMILY, AND

THAT WE BE ALLOWED TO LET

THERE BE STRUGGLE WITHIN

THAT LOVE BECAUSE THAT IS

PART OF REAL LIFE.

AND YOU CAN'T EXPECT TO GO

THROUGH SOMETHING THIS

HUGE WITHOUT HAVING

MOMENTS OF STRIFE.

Efrem: "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN" UNITES BISHOP T.D.

JAKES AND DEVON FRANKLIN.

THEY WORKED TOGETHER ON

THE FILM "HEAVEN IS FOR

REAL."

Efrem: I KNOW YOU

WERE LOOKING FOR A

FOLLOWUP TO "HEAVEN IS FOR

REAL," AND WHY IS THIS THE

PERFECT STORY TO DO THAT?

THE PRESIDENT OF SONY

CALLED AND SAID, WE NEED

TO DO "HEAVEN IS FOR REAL

2" AND WE WERE LIKE,

COLTON CAME BACK?

AND SHE WAS LIKE, NO,

THERE IS AN AUDIENCE WHO

WANTS MORE CONTENT LIKE

THIS.

AND HIS BOOK AGENT HAD

THIS BOOK PROPOSAL CALLED

"THREE MORE OR LESS FROM

HEAVEN."

IT WAS A MOTHER/DAUGHTER

STORY, A MOTHER FIGHTING

FOR THE HEALING OF HER

CHILD.

IT WAS A PAGE-TURNER.

AND WHEN YOU PUT THAT

PROPOSAL DOWN, IT WAS

CLEAR THIS WAS THE MOVIE

TO DO.

Efrem: WE KNOW THAT

CHRISTY BEAM IS CENTRAL TO

THIS STORY.

BUT ONE THE THINGS THAT

REALLY TOUCHED ME WAS HER

HUSBAND.

THE GENTLEMAN PLAYING HER

HUSBAND IN THE FILM, AS A

FATHER AND A HUSBAND, I

COULD IDENTIFY.

YOU SAY THAT LIKE IT'S

ABSOLUTE.

THIS MAY TAKE A WHILE,

BUT WE'LL BE OKAY.

Efrem: WHAT DO YOU

WANT MEN TO TAKE AWAY FROM

THAT?

BECAUSE I KNOW, TURNING TO

A WIFE WHO IS FALLING

APART, THINKING, HOW DO I

PULL THIS TOGETHER FOR

YOU --

OH, YES, I DO.

I THINK THAT'S A GREAT

QUESTION TO BE ASKED.

YOU WOULD THINK WITH THE

FEMALE DIRECTOR, AT THE

LEVEL WE HAVE, AND WITH

THE STAR LEVEL OF JENNIFER

GARNER, THAT IT WOULD BE A

CHICK FLICT.

BUT IT IS NOT A CHICK

FLICK.

IT DOES NOT EMASCULATE

MEN.

HE IS STILL STRONG.

HE IS STILL RELEVANT.

HE IS STILL POWERFUL.

I THINK MEN WILL ENJOY

THIS FILM BECAUSE IT IS

NOT JUST MERELY THE

DUMBING DOWN OF THE

MASCULINE ROLE IN THE

HOME.

Efrem: THIS IS THE

STORY OF HOPE FROM THE

HEART TO THE HEART.

I WANT PEOPLE TO COME

AWAY FEELING HOPEFUL.

AND I WANT PEOPLE TO COME

AWAY AND FEEL LIKE THEY

ARE SURROUNDED BY MIRACLES

AND THEY ARE SURROUNDED BY

LOVE.

AND SOMETIMES YOU MAY HAVE

TO DIG THEM OUT.

AND IT IS WORTH DIGGING

OUT, AND TO LOOK AROUND

YOU AND FIND THE JOY THAT

ALREADY EXISTS IN YOUR

LIFE.

Efrem: AND SPEAKING

OF FINDING JOY IN THE

EVERY DAY, JENNIFER GARNER

HAS SHARED SHE GREW UP

GOING TO CHURCH AT HOME IN

WEST VIRGINIA.

AND AFTER DOING THIS

MOVIE, IT IS NOW SOMETHING

SHE AND HER CHILDREN HAVE

STARTED DOING REGULARLY IN

LOS ANGELES.

> STILL AHEAD ON "STUDIO

5"...

HE IS VERY GROUNDED,

AND I DON'T KNOW IF THAT

IS A MIDDLE CHILD THING OR

BECAUSE SHE'S BEEN TO

HEAVEN KIND OF THING.

Efrem: THE REAL-LIFE

MOTHER OF ANNABELLE BEAM

TAKES US INSIDE THE FILM

AND INSIDE HER DAUGHTER'S

MIRACLE.

I THINK THE MESSAGE OF

FAITH IS IN THIS FILM, I

THINK THE PERSEVERANCE

THAT THIS FAMILY HAS TO

KEEP IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

PEOPLE HAVE TO SEE THAT

YOU HAVE TO KEEP THE

FAITH.

Efrem: THAT'S QUEEN

LATIFAH, WHO STARS

ALONGSIDE JENNIFER GARNER

IN "MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN."

GARNER PLAYS CRIS BMO

NESBETT BURNCHRISTY BEAM,THE MOTHER OF ANNABELLE

BEAM.

WE SIT DOWN WITH CHRISTY

BEAM FOR TODAY'S "STUDIO

5" INTERVIEW.

ACTRESS JENNIFER GARNER

BRINGS THE LIFE OF CHRISTY

BEAM TO THE BIG SCREEN IN

THE FILM "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN."

IT'S A ROLE GARNER

PERSONALLY CALLS

TRANSFORMATIVE.

I LOVE TALKING TO PEOPLE

WHO CAN SEE THEIR LIVES

PORTRAYED ON THE BIG

SCREEN, ESPECIALLY WHEN

THEY HAVE SUCH GREAT

ACTORS AND ACTRESSES

PLAYING THEM.

DID JENNIFER GARNER NAIL

YOU?

OH, SHE DID AN AMAZING

JOB.

SHE NAILED IT.

AND HER HEART WAS SO IN IT

FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.

FROM THE MOMENT B WE MET, WE

JUST BONDED.

MAYBE AS MOTHERS, WE JUST

CONNECTOR.

IT JUST WARMED MY HEART

BECAUSE SHE HAD MY BOOK,

AND SHE WAS POURING OVER

THE PAGES.

SHE HIGHLIGHTED THINGS,

AND SHE HAD QUESTIONS FOR

ME ABOUT THINGS.

SHE COMPLETELY ENGULFED

HERSELF IN IT.

Efrem: BEAM SHARED

HER FAMILY'S STORY IN THE

BOOK ALSO TITLED "MIRACLES

FROM HEAVEN."

HER DAUGHTER SUFFERED

THROUGH YEARS OF PAIN,

HOSPITAL SURGERIES AND

INVASIVE TESTING.

SHE WAS SENT HOME TO DIE.

WHEN SHE FELL 30 FEET

HEAD-FIRST INTO A HOLLOW

COTTONWOOD TREE ON THE

FAMILY FARM, SHE WAS

TRAPPED, UNRESPONSIVE, FOR

HOURS.

BUT WOKE UP AND WALKED

AWAY HEALED, WITH A STORY

OF MEETING JESUS IN

HEAVEN.

Efrem: LET'S GO BACK

TO THAT TIME WHEN YOUR

DAUGHTER WAS SICK.

WERE YOU PRAYING FOR A

MIRACLE?

WHAT WERE YOU PRAYING FOR?

I HONESTLY -- I WISH I

COULD SAY I WAS PRAYING

FOR A MIRACLE, BUT I

WASN'T.

SOMETIMES MY PRAYERS WERE,

LET ANNABELLE EAT THIS

PLATE OF FOOD.

LET TODAY BE THE DAY SHE

DRINKS THIS WHOLE GLASS OF

WATER.

LET TODAY BE THE DAY HER

PAIN IS AT AN EIGHT, NOT A

10.

SO I DIDN'T PRAY FOR A

MIRACLE.

I PRAYED FOR MAYBE SIMPLE

THINGS, NOT PUTTING GOD

WHERE HE SHOULD BE, ABLE

TO ANSWER THOSE BIG

PRAYERS.

Efrem: DID YOU EVER

STOP AS A FAMILY, OR AN

INDIVIDUAL, AND SAY, GOD,

WHY HER?

OH, MY GOD, I ASKED,

WHY ANNA?

WHY ME?

WHY US?

I REMEMBER CRYING OUT TO

HIM AND SAYING, ARE YOU

SEEING WHAT I'M SEEING?

DO YOU FEEL WHAT I'M

FEELING?

HOW CAN YOU LET THIS

HAPPEN?

SO MANY TIMES I ASKED THAT

QUESTION.

Efrem: THERE WAS A

TIME THAT YOU WRITE ABOUT

WHERE YOUR DAUGHTER

ESSENTIALLY IS READY TO

GIVE UP.

SHE SAYS, I JUST WANT TO

GO TO HEAVEN.

TAKE ME BACK TO THAT TIME.

RECALL SOME OF THAT

CONVERSATION.

YOU KNOW, I LEARNED SO

MUCH ABOUT GOD.

AT THAT TIME, I WOULD JUST

CRY OUT TO GOD MORE THAN

ANYTHING.

GOD, PLEASE DON'T ANSWER

HER PRAYER.

PLEASE DON'T TAKE HER.

YOU CAN'T HAVE HER.

PLEASE BE WITH HER.

PLEASE LOVE HER.

IT WAS MORE OF ME CRYING

OUT TO HIM, I GUESS IS

JUST THE BEST WAY TO

DESCRIBE IT, THAN

INTIMATELY TALKING WITH

HIM AND HAVING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM

ABOUT IT.

BUT MY PRAYERS WERE JUST

FOR PROTECTION AND FOR

SAFETY, AND PLEASE DON'T

TAKE HER.

Efrem: I READ YOU

SAID THAT IT WAS HARD TO

ACCEPT AND BELIEVE THAT

GOD COULD LOVE YOUR CHILD

MORE THAN YOU.

WHAT MAKES YOU SAY THAT?

BECAUSE IT JUST HIT ME

ONE DAY.

AND I STILL GET SO

OVERWHELMED THAT AS MUCH

AS I LOVE ANNABELLE, AS

FULL OF LOVE AS MY HEART

IS FOR HER, HE LOVES HER

MORE THAN I DO.

SO WHEN I YEARN AND

STRUGGLE AND WATCH HER

SUFFER, HOW MUCH MORE DOES

HE HURT TO WATCH THAT BABY

SUFFER.

AND WHEN THAT CLICKED IN

MY BRAIN, IT WAS, LIKE,

HE'S NOT WATCHING THIS.

HE'S GETTING THIS.

HE'S FEELING THIS.

HE'S LIVING THIS.

AT THAT MOMENT, I BEGAN TO

SEE THAT GOD WAS MUCH AS

PART OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING

AS OPPOSED TO THIS BIG GOD

SITTING OVER WHAT WAS

HAPPENING.

HE WAS INTIMATELY INVOLVED

IN IT.

Efrem: THAT IS THE

BEAM FAMILY'S MIRACLE

STORY, BUT GOD IS

PERFORMING MIRACLES ALL

AROUND US.

WE JUST NEED TO WAKE UP

AND PAY ATTENTION.

> STILL AHEAD ON "STUDIO

5," WE'RE HITTING THE

ICONIC STREETS OF NEW

ORLEANS, WHERE THE STAGE

IS BEING SET FOR JESUS'

COMING.

THIS IS PROBABLY THE

BIGGEST ROLE ANYONE COULD

EVER PLAY.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT --

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT JESUS

CHRIST HERE.

Efrem: PALM SUNDAY

BRINGS A LIVE PASSION

PERFORMANCE TO THE BIG

EASY.

Efrem: WE'VE BEEN

TAKING A LOOK AT MIRACLES

IN TODAY'S "STUDIO 5," AND

IT IS EASTER SEASON.

BELIEVERS CELEBRATING THE

MIRACLE OF JESUS' DEATH,

BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION,

THE PASSION STORY.

AND THIS YEAR THAT STORY

IS COMING TO LIFE ON THE

STREETS OF NEW ORLEANS AND

ON THE FOX TELEVISION

NETWORK IN A LIVE MASSIVE

MUSCULAR, "THE PASSION."

* MARY, THERE IS NO FEAR

NOW *

Efrem: THE FINAL

HOURS OF CHRIST'S JOURNEY

ON EARTH ARE COMING TO

LIFE WITH JENCARLOS CANELA

TAKING ON THE LEAD ROLE.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE TO

PLAY JESUS?

Efrem: IT'S A MUSICAL

TAKE SET IN THE STREETS OF

PRESENT-DAY NEW ORLEANS.

I FEEL IT WILL APPEAL

TO AN EVEN BIGGER AUDIENCE

THAT NEEDS TO HEAR THAT

STORY ABOUT LOVE.

Efrem: COUNTRY

SUPERSTAR TRISHA YEARWOOD

PLAYS THE MOTHER OF JESUS,

AND TYLER PERRY NARRATES

THE TWO-HOUR FOX

TELEVISION SPECIAL, WHICH

INCLUDES PERFORMANCES FROM

GOSPEL ARTIST YOLANDA

ADAMS AND CHRIS DAUGHTRY.

I AM PLAYING JUDAS, THE

BAD GUY.

THE ULTIMATE VILLAIN.

BUT I BELIEVE IT IS A

CHARACTER THAT -- I THINK

THERE IS A BIT OF JUDAS

THAT WE CAN ALL RELATE TO.

Efrem: THERE ARE

MULTIPLE MOVING PARTS

THROUGHOUT THE CRESCENT

CITY.

A STAGE, BIG SCREENS, AND

PEOPLE CARRYING A 20-FOOT

ILLUMINATED CROSS FROM THE

SUPERDOME TO THE BANKS OF

THE MISSISSIPPI.

THE MASSIVE PRODUCTION IS

PART OF WHAT ATTRACTED

MICHAEL W. SMITH TO THE

PROJECT, PLAYING ONE OF

JESUS' DISCIPLES.

I LIKE THE ADVENTURE.

I THINK IT IS UNIQUE.

I THINK IT IS REALLY A

WILD AND WONDERFUL IDEA.

SHANE HARPER, KNOWN FOR

HIS BREAKOUT ROLE IN

"GOD'S NOT DEAD," ALSO

PLAYS A DISCIPLE.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

ARE VERY FAMILIAR WITH

THIS STORY.

THEY GREW UP HEARING ABOUT

IT IN SUNDAY SCHOOL.

BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

HAVEN'T HAD THAT

EXPERIENCE.

AND I HOPE THAT BOTH OF

THESE GROUPS OF PEOPLE

WILL COME WITH OPEN HEARTS

TO THIS PERFORMANCE.

*

Efrem: THE PLAY HANGS

ON POPULAR MUSIC, WITH

LYRICS REWRITTEN TO TELL

THE STORY.

I THINK "THE REASON" BY

HOOBASTANK, I WAS ALWAYS

ONE OF MY FAIREST RECORDS.

SEEING THE SONG FROM A

WHOLE OTHER POINT OF VIEW

WILL DEFINITELY BE AN

EMOTIONAL PERFORMANCE.

Efrem: THIS IS AN

EMOTIONAL STORY OF

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

I THINK THIS WILL REACH

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT

WOULD NORMALLY NEVER HEAR

THE GOSPEL, THAT THEY

WOULD PROBABLY REALLY

TOTALLY UNDERSTAND WHO

JESUS REALLY IS.

WHEN I SAID YES TO

THIS, I STARTED BECOMING

EVEN CLOSER THAN I WAS

BEFORE TO THE STORY, TO

THE SCRIPTURES, TO THE

BOOK, TO THE BIBLE.

AND IN DOING SO, I JUST

WAS REMINDED THAT, YES, HE

WAS SUCH A POWERFUL BEING,

BUT HE WAS ALSO HUMAN.

Efrem: "STUDIO 5" IS

IN NEW ORLEANS FOR THE

LIVE PERFORMANCE.

BE SURE TO FOLLOW ME AT

EFREM GRAHAM ON INSTAGRAM,

WITHER,TWITTER, AND Facebook.

THIS SUNDAY BRINGS A NEW

FILM TO THEATERS.

IMAGINE SCI-FI, EXTREMISM,

AND A CHASE, AND IT CAN

ALL BE FOUND IN "A

MIDNIGHT CONFESSION."

AT THE TIME, I WAS A

YOUNG FATHER, AND I WAS

TRYING TO SORT OUT ALL OF

THE FEAR AND ALL OF THE

ANXIETY THAT COMES ALONG

WITH THAT, AND THE FEAR OF

LOSING A CHILD OR JUST

HELPING A CHILD GROW UP.

AND THAT ENDED UP BECOMING

THE CORNERSTONE FOR WHAT

THE FILM IS REALLY ABOUT.

Efrem: THAT WOULD

EXPLAIN THEM, TO ME, THE

BEAUTIFUL RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN THE FATHER AND

SON.

DAD?

YEAH?

ARE YOU SCARED?

YES.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT ME.

I LIKE WORRYING ABOUT

YOU.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO

ANYMORE.

I'LL ALWAYS WORRY ABOUT

YOU.

THAT'S THE DEAL.

Efrem: CAYTON, YOUR

CHARACTER IS ALTON.

TELL ME ABOUT HIM?

HUGH IWHO IS HE?

ALTON IS THIS BOY WITH

SPECIAL POWERS, BUT THAT

DOESN'T REALLY DEFINE WHO

HE IS.

HE IS JUST A NORMAL BOY

AND HE HAS GONE THROUGH A

LOT.

WHY ARE YOU WEARING

THOSE GOGGLES?

STOP, STOP!

HE'S WITH ME.

HE'S MY SON.

WELL, YOU OUGHT TO

WATCH YOUR KID.

HIS LOVE FOR HIS SON

KIND OF TELLS HIM HOW TO

LIVE AND WHAT TO DO.

Efrem: HOW IMPORTANT

IS THE THEME OF FAITH, DO

YOU THINK, IN THIS FILM?

OH, I THINK IT IS

DEFINITELY A HUGE PART OF

THE STORY.

FAITH, BELIEFS -- I MEAN,

THAT'S WHAT MOTIVATES US

TO LIVE, IS OUR FAITH OR

OUR BELIEF IN SOMETHING.

"MIDNIGHT SPECIAL" HITS

THEATERS MARCH 13th.

> UP NEXT, HERE ON

"STUDIO 5," RECORDING

ARTIST CHRISTIAN GREY

BREAKS HIS SILENCE WITH A

NEW PROJECT AND A NEW

RECORD LABEL.

[RAPPING.

[.

Efrem: THE SONG YOU

TRACKS HE RELEASED BEFORE

DROPPING HIS LATEST

PROJECT, "THE GLORY

ALBUM."

CHRISTIAN GREY JOINS US

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN

THIS PARTICULAR SCRIPT IS

HAPPENING ALL AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

Efrem: FAITH IS ON

TRIAL ONCE AGAIN IN THIS

SECOND INSTALLMENT OF

"GOD'S NOT DEAD."

"STUDIO 5" IS ONSET WITH

THE FILM'S LEADING LADY,

MELISSA JOAN HART, AND

YOU'LL SEE WHY THE ACTRESS

SAYS THIS IS THE ROLE SHE

WAS CALLED TO FILL.

> I'M GIVING THE FINAL

WORLD TO SHA SHANDA PIERCE.

SHE IS PROOF THAT A MERRY

HEART IS, INDEED,

MEDICINE.

YOU HAVE TO GO BACK TO

WORK.

IT SOUNDS LIKE A HARSH

WORD IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR

GRIEF.

BUT EVERY WIDOW IS GOING,

WOW, I WISH I COULD HAVE

HID AWAY FOR A FEW MORE

WEEKS.

BUT I WILL TELL YOU THIS:

GOD IS SO GOOD AND

SOMETIMES WE THINK HE IS

NOT WORKING IN OUR LIVES,

BUT SOMETIMES THE VERY

FACT THAT WE HAVE TO GO

BACK TO WORK TO PAY THE

LIGHT BILL IS A GIFT FROM

THE LORD, TO MAKE US NOT

HIDE AWAY AND GIVE INTO

OUR GRIEF.

AND SO, THEREFORE, YOU DO

LEARN TO BE GRATEFUL.

Efrem: IMAGINE THAT,

EVEN A STACK OF BILLS CAN

BE A GIFT FROM GOD.

THAT IS THE FINAL WORD FOR

TODAY'S "STUDIO 5."

UNTIL NEXT TIME, REACH OUT
