Efrem: SECONDS AWAY

ON "STUDIO 5"...

HI, WE'RE RICK AND

MELISSA FROM AUSTIN,

TEXAS, AND WE'RE HERE

TODAY TO KNOCK YOUR SOCKS

OFF, LITERALLY.

Efrem: A BOOMING

BUSINESS BORN FROM

TRAGEDY.

YOU'RE ON BED-REST, IN THE

HOSPITAL, BUT YOU

DECIDE -- DO YOU MAKE A

CONSCIOUS DECISION YOU'RE

NOT GOING TO BE UPSET OR

ANGRY?

WHAT HAPPENED?

I THINK I WAS

DETERMINED NOT TO LET FEAR

SET IN.

Efrem: AND THEN A

BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT

THIS MASSIVE THEATER WITH

A 41-YEAR HISTORY.

IN THAT 41 YEARS, WE'VE

HAD ROUGHLY 22 MILLION

PEOPLE COME THROUGH OUR

DOORS.

Efrem: THERE ARE MANY

MOVIE PARTS IN ANY SIGHT

AND SOUND PRODUCTION.

I'M ACTUALLY SEATED ABOARD

ONE OF THEM.

> PLUS...

*

Efrem: THE

LOS ANGELES AND ""LA LA

LAND" LOVE AFFAIR IS ALIVE

IN "STUDIO 5," STARTING

NOW.

> AND WELCOME TO "STUDIO

5."

SO GLAD YOU CAN JOIN US.

LET'S BEGIN THIS SHOW WITH

A LOOK AT THE TOP FIVE

STORIES IN UPLIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.

LET'S START WITH THE FIRST

TWO.

AT NUMBER FIVE...PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD PAUSE TO

REMEMBER THE 1.5 MILLION

LIVES LOST IN THE ARMENIAN

GENOCIDE 102 YEARS AGO,

MANY OF THEM CHRISTIANS.

THE OFTEN FORGOTTEN STORY

IN TURKEY'S HISTORY IS THE

INSPIRATION FOR THE NEW

FILM "THE PROMISE."

THE LEGENDARY CHRIS

MYERS.

Efrem: STARRING

CHRISTIAN BALE.

WHAT IS THE ULTIMATE

PROMISE IN "THE PROMISE"?

WELL, THERE IS A

PROMISE THAT THE

CHARACTER, MIKHAIL, HAS

TOWARDS THE WOMAN HE IS

BETROTHED TO, THAT HE WILL

RETURN.

I THINK OVER ALL THERE IS

A PROMISE NEVER TO FORGET

BY THE FILM-MAKERS, BY

ARMENIANS IN GENERAL, BUT

ANYBODY WHO HAS LOST

SOMEBODY, WHETHER IT BE

THROUGH GENOCIDE OR ANY

OTHER CIRCUMSTANCE, A

PROMISE NEVER TO FORGET.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FOUR...

PLEASE WELCOME BACK TO

THE SHOW JENNIFER HUDSON.

Efrem: ACTRESS AND

SINGER JENNIFER HUDSON

TAKES "THE LATE SHOW" TO

CHURCH.

* TALK ABOUT A CHILD THAT

DO LOVE JESUS *

* HE IS ONE

* TALK ABOUT A CHILD

[APPLAUSE]

*

[APPLAUSE]

* GOD, LOOK AT ME

Efrem: SHARING HER

FAVORITE HYMN WITH HOST

STEPHEN COLBERT.

IF I WASN'T A CHRISTIAN

WHEN THAT SONG STARTED, I

WOULD BE WHEN THAT SONG

WAS OVER.

Efrem: AND THOSE ARE

JUST THE FIRST TWO IN THE

COUNTDOWN.

> IF YOU ARE A HAN OF

"SHARK TANK," YOU KNOW IT

PUTS ENTREPRENEURS IN

COMPETITION TO PARTNER

WITH SOME OF THE BIGGEST

NAMES IN BUSINESS FOR A

CHANCE TO MAKE THEIR

DREAMS COME TRUE.

BUT "THE SHARK TANK" ISN'T

ALWAYS EASY.

BUT FOR THE COUPLE BEHIND

"GRACE AND LACE," THE

STORY IS A BIT DIFFERENT.

THEY SAT DOWN WITH US FOR

THIS WEEK'S "STUDIO 5"

INTERVIEW.

"GRACE AND LACE" HAS

TAKEN THE BORING SOCK THAT

WOMEN WEAR UNDER THEIR

BOOTS AND WE TURNED IT

INTO A LACEY FASHION

STATEMENT.

Efrem: THEY WERE

SEASON FIVE CONTESTANTS ON

ABC'S "SHARK TANK."

WE KNEW WHO WE WANTED.

SO WE WEREN'T INDECISIVE.

I'M GOING TO CHANGE THE

OFFER TO GIVE YOU EXACTLY

WHAT YOU ASKED FOR.

Efrem: THEY LEFT WITH

A DEAL.

SEVEN YEARS LATER, THE

AUSTIN COUPLE RUN A

BOOMING BUSINESS.

LET'S SEE WHAT THEY ARE

UP TO NOW.

WE ALWAYS KNEW THAT

BARBARA WOULD MAKE THE

PERFECT PARTNER FOR US.

SHE HAS OPENED UP

INCREDIBLE BUSINESS

OPPORTUNITIES.

Efrem: WHAT YOU

DIDN'T SEE ON THE SHOW IS

THE PAINFUL STORY BEHIND

THE KNITTED SOCKS.

> IT STARTED IN 2010,

YOU MARRIED AND FIND OUT

YOUR EXPECTING A CHILD.

WHAT HAPPENED?

ABOUT HALF WAY THROUGH

THE PREGNANCY I WAS AT A

ROUTINE DOCTOR'S VISIT,

AND SUDDENLY THE DOCTOR

LOOKED AT ME, AND I COULD

TELL SOMETHING WAS WRONG.

Efrem: JUST FROM THE

LOOK?

YEA.

YEAH.

AND SHE SAID, MELISSA,

YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE BIRTH

TO YOUR LITTLE GIRL WITHIN

24 HOURS, AND SHE IS NOT

GOING TO SURVIVE.

I WAS RUSHED INTO

EMERGENCY SURGERY, AND

RICK WAS ACTUALLY OUT OF

TOWN.

THEY WHEELED ME RIGHT FROM

THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE, INTO

A HOSPITAL BED, AND

STRAIGHT INTO EMERGENCY

SURGERY.

AND THE DOCTOR SAID WE'LL

DO ALL THAT WE CAN TO TRY

TO SAVE HER, BUT THE

CHANCES ARE VERY, VERY

SLIM.

AND IF THE SURGERY IS

SUCCESSFUL, YOU'LL REMAIN

IN THE HOSPITAL FOR THE

DURATION OF THIS

PREGNANCY.

SO FOUR MONTHS.

Efrem: DO YOU MAKE A

CONSCIOUS DECISION THAT

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE

UPSET OR ANGRY?

WHAT HAPPENED?

I THINK I WAS

DETERMINED NOT TO LET FEAR

SET IN, KNOWING THE

TIMELINE OF FOUR,

POTENTIALLY FIVE MONTHS,

OF LAYING IN THE HOSPITAL,

I HAD TO KEEP MY MIND

FOCUSED.

Efrem: SHE PICKED UP

A HOBBY, KNITTING.

I STARTED WITH A VISION

TO MAKE MY BABY GIRL A

BLANKET.

THAT'S HOW TIME PASSED FOR

ME.

THINGS STARTED TO TAKE A

TURN FOR THE WORST.

EVERYTHING WAS GOING

GREAT.

RIC ANRICK AND I WERE SO FULL OF

FAITH.

WE SAW THIS AS REALLY JUST

A HURTLE.

AND THIS BABY GIRL IS

GOING TO COME INTO THE

WORLD WITH A STORY THAT IS

A MIRACLE TESTIMONY,

REALLY.

UNTIL THAT NIGHT WHEN --

I'M SORRY.

MY WATER BROKE, AND THE

DOCTORS CAME IN SAID, AT

THIS POINT THERE IS

NOTHING ELSE THAT WE CAN

DO.

WE CAN'T SAVE HER.

AND SHE'LL BE BORN TOO

EARLY TO SURVIVE.

AND SHE WAS.

I HAD LITTLE BABY GIRL

HALEY, SHORT FOR

HALLELUJAH, AND SHE WAS

PERFECT, BUT JUST TOO

LITTLE TO MAKE IT.

Efrem: WHAT WERE YOUR

PRAYERS AND CONVERSATIONS

WITH GOD LIKE?

I'LL NEVER FORGET RICK

COMING INTO THE ROOM AFTER

HALLEY WAS BORN, AND

SAYING, MELISSA, WE HAVE A

GITIODECISION TO MAKE.

WE CAN EITHER BE MAD AND

BITTER AT GOD AND WONDER

WHY WOULD A GOOD GOD CAUSE

THIS TO HAPPEN?

OR WE CAN CHOOSE TO

BELIEVE THAT SOMEHOW

SOMETHING IS GOING TO COME

FROM THIS.

Efrem: WHAT HAPPENED

WITH THE BLANKET THAT YOU

STARTED TO KNIT FOR

HALLEY?

I STILL HAVE IT, JUST

TEARS SHED OVER THE YARN,

OVER THE FABRIC, AND GOD

JUST REALLY SPEAKING ME

THROUGH IT.

I FELT THE PAIN OF

STRUGGLING AS A FIRST-TIME

MOM.

MY BODY FAILED TO CREATE

THIS BABY GIRL, SO I FELT

THIS -- WELL, I CAN STILL

CREATE FROM MY HANDS.

SOMETHING STILL CAN COME

FROM ME THAT IS GOING TO

BRING LIFE.

AND NOW WE HAVE HER BABY

SISTER, AND SHE USES IT ON

HER BED.

Efrem: IN TERMS OF

MAKING THINGS WITH YOUR

HANDS, THAT'S NOT YOUR

LIFE'S WORK.

LET'S GET TO THE BEGINNING

OF THAT.

SO YOU GET OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL, AND YOU'RE

KNITTING SOCKS FOR

YOURSELF?

ONE DAY I WANTED TO

MAKE A PAIR OF SOCKS THAT

HAD LACE ON THE TOP OF

THEM, SO THEY WOULD STICK

OUT OF THE TOP OF MY

BOOTS.

I COME UP WITH THESE CRAZY

IDEAS.

I KNEW I COULD DO IT.

IT TOOK ME FIVE HOURS TO

FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO IT --

SEVEN.

I PROMISED HIM I WOULD

NEVER MAKE ANOTHER PAIR

AGAIN IN MY LIFE.

Efrem: MELISSA ALSO

POSTED A PICTURE OF HER

SOCKS ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

AND I'M, LIKE, MAN,

THESE SOCKS ARE GETTING

SOME ATTENTION.

MY ENTREPRENEURIAL HUSBAND

SAYS, WHY DON'T YOU PUT

THEM UP ON LINE.

SO I DID WITHOUT QUITE

THINKING THROUGH WHAT

POSSIBLY COULD HAPPEN.

THEY SOLD INSTANTLY, AND

WITHIN A MATTER OF THREE

DAYS, WE HAD OVER 500

PURCHASE ORDERS FOR THIS

ONE PAIR OF SOCKS.

Efrem: WOW.

AND THERE WERE PEOPLE

WHO HAD ALREADY PAID US.

WE COULD OBVIOUSLY REFUND

EVERYONE AND THAT WOULD BE

TOTALLY FINE, OR WE CAN

FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO IT.

I THINK GOD HAS INSTILLED

IN US HOW TO FIGURE OUT

THINGS AND GET OVER

HURTLES.

Efrem: THEY PUT THEIR

HEADS TOGETHER AND CREATED

"GRACE AND LACE."

WITHOUT A CENT ON

ADVERTISING, THEIR SALES

JUMPED FROM HUNDREDS TO

THOUSANDS.

THREE MONTHS IN BUSINESS,

THEY FELT GOD WANTED THEM

TO PITCH THEIR COMPANY ON

"SHARK TANK," AND AIMED TO

PARTNER WITH BARBARA.

TWO YEARS LATER, THEY

LANDED A SPOT ON THE SHOW.

>

Efrem: YOU GO IN AND

YOU'RE OFFERED EXACTLY

WHAT YOU ASKED FOR, BUT

YOU DON'T ACCEPT IT.

WE WERE IN THERE FOR AN

HOUR AND A HALF, AND

WITHIN THE FIRST 10

MINUTES, BARBARA GAVE US

AN OFFER, BUT SHE ONLY

GAVE US HALF OF WHAT WE

WANTED.

THE NEXT SHARK, KEVIN

O'LEARY WANTS TO DO THE

DEAL, BUT NOT WITH

BARBARA.

AND I WAS STALLING, AS

MUCH AS I COULD, WITH THE

OTHER SHARKS.

Efrem: THEY WERE

FRUSTRATED.

VERY FRUSTRATED.

IT GOT VERY HEATED IN

THERE.

JUST LIKE GOD, IN THE VERY

END, AFTER AN HOUR AND A

HALF OF BACK AND FORTH AND

INTENSITY, BARBARA SAID,

YOU KNOW WHAT?

I'M GOING TO CHANGE MY

OFFER.

I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU THE

FULL OFFER.

FINALLY.

OH, MY GOODNESS.

WE WERE ELATED, ABSOLUTELY

ELATED.

Efrem: YOU CERTAINLY

LOST ONE CHILD, BUT YOUR

FAMILY HAS STILL GROWN.

YOU GUYS HAVE HOW MANY

CHILDREN NOW?

THREE.

I THINK THIS JOURNEY

HAS TAUGHT US THAT GOD HAS

SO MUCH MORE IN STORE THAT

WE CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE.

AND HE IS BETTER THAN WE

CAN IMAGINE.

Efrem: AND IF YOU

WOULD LIKE TO WEAR SOME

"GRACE AND LACE" APPAREL,

YOU CAN CHECK IT OUT AT

graceandlace.com.

> STILL AHEAD, ON

"STUDIO 5"...

WE ARE A SAFER, MORE

PROSPEROUS PEOPLE --

Efrem: WHAT IS KNEW

AT THE SIGHT AND SOUND

THEATERS.

RIGHT NOW WE HAVE

"MOSES" IN OUR BRANSON

THEATER.

AND NEXT YEAR WE'RE HAVING

A BRAND NEW SHOW WE HAVE

NEVER DONE BEFORE, AND

THAT IS ON THE LIFE OF

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "STUDIO 5."

WE ARE CONTINUING OUR

COUNTDOWN OF THE BEST

STORIES IN UPLIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.

HERE ARE THE NEXT TWO.

AT NUMBER THREE...WE HAVE

GOT THE PRIVILEGE OF

GIVING YOU A SNEAK PEEK OF

CHONDA'S NEW FILM,

"ENOUGH."

I HAVE THESE

WELL-MEANING GIRLFRIENDS,

AND THEY SIGNED ME UP FOR

MATCH.COM, AND ONE CALLED

"OUR TIME," WHICH REALLY

MEANS THERE IS LITTLE TIME

LEFT AT ALL.

Efrem: THE QUEEN OF

COMEDY RELEASED THE

FOLLOWUP TO HER

DOCUMENTARY.

I DIDN'T THINK WE HAD A

STORY UNTIL JUST A FEW

MONTHS AGO.

I SAID, THERE IS A STORY

HERE IN THAT LEARNING TO

PICK UP THE PIECES AFTER A

TRAUMA, AND LEARNING TO

PICK UP THE PIECES OF YOUR

LIFE AFTER BEING A WIFE

FOR 30 SOMETHING YEARS AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU'RE

WIDOWED, AND THEN WHAT

DOES THAT LOOK LIKE?

Efrem: AT NUMBER

TWO...

MY PARENTS BOUGHT ME A

BRAND NEW BASKETBALL, AND

I FOUND MYSELF LAYING IN

BED AND SHOOTING WITH IT.

Efrem: FROM

BASKETBALL STAR TO

FILM-MAKER, KOBE BRYANT

PENNED THE POEM "DEAR

BASKETBALL," WHEN HE

RETIRED FROM THE GAME.

THAT LOVE LETTER IS NOW A

SHORT FILM, PREMIERING

THIS WEEK.

SHOOTING AN IMAGINARY

GAME.

I KNEW ONE THING WAS REAL.

Efrem: AND THERE IS

ONLY ONE LEFT IN THE

COUNTDOWN.

BE SURE TO STICK AROUND

FOR THAT.

> THE STORY OF JONAH IS

A WONDERFUL ONE.

IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT TO

PENNSYLVANIA, YOU CAN NOW

CATCH IT ON MAY 2nd IN A

FATHOM EVENT.

WE HAVE MORE ON THAT IN

JUST A BIT, BUT HERE IS

YOUR LOOK AT THE FILM.

ON A CORN FIELD IN

LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA,

SITS A MASSIVE THEATER

THAT HAS DRAWN CROWDS BY

THE BUSLOAD FOR 41 YEARS.

IN THAT 41 YEARS, WE'VE

HAD ROUGHLY 22 MILLION

PEOPLE COME THROUGH OUR

DOORS.

Efrem: WE'RE VISITING

"SIGHT AND SOUND" JUST

HOURS BEFORE OPENING NIGHT

OF THE NEW SEASON.

IT NEVER GETS OLD,

SITTING HERE AND TALKING

TO PEOPLE THE DAY BEFORE

AN OPENING.

THE SIMPLE WAY TO SAY IT

IS WE BRING A NOVEL TO

LIFE.

WE WANT TO MOVE PEOPLE'S

HEARTS THROUGH TRUTH AND

THE POWER OF STUDY.

Efrem: THERE IS A

BUZZ OF EXCITEMENT IN THE

AIR, EVEN BEFORE THE CAST

TAKES THE CAST FOR...

ONE, TWO, THREE.

Efrem: ...THE NIGHT'S

RETURNING SHOW.

JONAH IS A FAMILY

FAVORITE FOR KIDS.

THERE IS NOTHING QUITE

LIKE THE MOVIE OF THE

WHALE.

Efrem: I'M ACTUALLY

SEATED ABOARD ONE OF THE

SIGHTS AND SOUNDS.

THIS WAS USED DURING THE

PRODUCTION OF JONAH.

EACH OPERATED BY THE

ACTOR, BY A REMOTE CONTROL

HIDDEN IN HERE.

WE TAKE THE STORIES OUT

OF THE BIBLE AND WE BRING

THEM TO LIFE ON STAGE.

AND WE TELL THEM IN A

REALLY LARGE, ETHIC SCALE.

WE LOVE TO IMMERSE PEOPLE

IN THE STORY AND TO

EXPERIENCE WHAT IT MAY

HAVE FELT LIKE.

Efrem: THIS ISN'T

JUST A JOB.

IT'S A FAMILY MISSION, RUN

BY PEOPLE WHO'S OWN LIVES

HAVE BEEN CHANGED BY THE

WORK THEY DO.

22 YEARS AGO I WAS

SCOUTING OUT FILM SCHOOLS

BECAUSE I WANTED TO BE A

FILM-MAKER.

AND I JUST HAD BECOME A

CHRISTIAN AT THE TIME.

TIME.

IT WAS SIX MONTHS.

AND MY MOM KNEW I WANTED

TO BE IN THE INDUSTRY SOME

HOW, AND SHE SAID, THERE

IS A THEATER DOWN THE ROAD

CALLED "SIGHT AND SOUND."

WHY DON'T WE CHECK IT OUT.

AND I SAID, MOM, I'M NOT

VERSED IN THEATER.

AND SHE SAID, LET'S JUST

GO TAKE A LOOK.

AND SHE ARRANGED FOR ME TO

GET AN INTERVIEW.

AUGUST OF 1995, MY MOM AND

I STOOD IN THE BACK OF THE

ENTERTAINMENT CENTER AND

OPENED THE DOORS, AND I

LOOKED ACROSS THE

AUDITORIUM AND I SAW

NOAH'S ARK BEING BUILT.

I THOUGHT, WHAT IS THIS

PLACE?

THIS IS NOT WHAT I WAS

EXPECTING.

AND I WAS HOOKED.

I THINK STORY-TELLING ON

STAGE IS EXCITING AND

INTERESTING, AND I BECAME

A STAGE TECHNICIAN.

Efrem: AND NEVER MADE

IT TO FILM SCHOOL?

NEVER MADE IT TO FILM

SCHOOL.

MAYB Efrem: BUT "SIGHT AND

SOUND" IS GETTING INTO THE

MOVIE BUSINESS, AT LEAST

FOR ONE NIGHT.

BRINGING THE LARGER THAN

LIFE IMMERSION TO A MOVIE

HOUSE NEAR YOU.

IN THE THEATER, YOU'RE

THERE AND THE WHALE IS

LITERALLY GOING OVER YOUR

HEAD.

HOWEVER, ON A MOVIE

SCREEN, THE CAMERAS ARE

ABLE TO GET ANGLES THAT

YOU CAN'T ACTUALLY SEE

FROM YOUR SEAT IN THE

THEATER.

AND YOU GET TO SEE THE

DETAILING AND THE COSTUMES

AND THE SET PIECES.

Efrem: YOU CAN CATCH

JONAH ON STAGE THROUGH

OCTOBER 14th IN

LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA.

AND YOU CAN CATCH IT IN

THEATERS MAY 2nd.

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE

WEBSITE FOR MORE.

UP NEXT ON "STUDIO

5"...

*

Efrem: THE

LOS ANGELES AND "LA LA

LAND" LOVE AFFAIR IS

OFFICIAL.

WE'RE SHARING HOW.

HOPE AND DREAMING IS

NOT FOR NOTHING.

Efrem: AND WE'RE BACK

WITH MUCH MORE "STUDIO 5"

AND NUMBER BUN I ONE IN THIS

WEEK'S COUNTDOWN.

THE 2,607 THINK STAR ON

THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

WILL GO TO ACTOR CHRIS

PRATT.

Efrem: THE STAR

RECEIVES HIS STAR ON THE

HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

WITH HIS WIFE AND SON BY

HIS SIDE.

BETTER KNOWN FOR HIS GOOFY

SIDE, HE GETS A BIT

EMOTIONAL.

I'M HUMBLED AND

GRATEFUL, BUT I'M NOT SURE

I'M WORTHY.

I'M A MAN OF FAITH, AND I

BELIEVE THAT GOD WORKS IN

MYSTERIOUS WAYS AND GIVES

US SIGNS AND GIFTS IN

LIFE.

AND THOSE GIFTS OFTENTIMES

COME IN THE FORM OF

PEOPLE.

Efrem: THE AFFAIR

BETWEEN LOS ANGELES AND

"LA LA LAND" IS NOW

OFFICIAL.

THE MAYOR HAS DECLARED

APRIL 25th "LA LA LAND"

DAY, JUST IN TIME FOR THE

FILM'S D.V.D. RELEASE.

HERE IS A LOOK AT SOME

INTERVIEWS WITH THE

ACTORS.

*

* HERE IS TO THE LOVE WE

MAKE *

THIS IS A MOVIE ABOUT

ORDINARY PEOPLE GOING

THROUGH EMOTIONS THAT WE

CAN ALL RELATE TO, BUT I

WANTED TO FEEL IT.

* HERE TO THE WORDS

I LOVE MUSICALS SO

MUCH.

I HAVE SINCE I WAS A KID.

SO TO BE PART OF AN

ORIGINAL MUSICAL IS KIND

OF A DREAM.

TWO OPTIONS: YOU EITHER

FOLLOW MY RULES OR FOLLOW

MY RULES, CAPISH?

MIA IS AN INSPIRING

ACTRESS WHO HAS BEEN

AUDITIONING FOR QUITE A

WHILE.

WHEN WE MEET HER, SHE HAS

BEEN LIVING IN L.A. FOR

SIX YEARS.

IT IS A DREAM OF HERS.

WE KEEP RUNNING INTO

EACH OTHER.

MAYBE IT MEANS

SOMETHING.

I DOUBT IT.

WE DID A LOT OF DANCE

REHEARSAL, AND LEARNED TO

TAP DANCE AND BALLROOM

DANCE.

AND I DID SINGING LESSONS

AND RYAN DID PIANO

LESSONS.

IT WAS A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY.

* LITTLE STAR, ARE YOU

SHINING JUST FOR ME *

IT IS WONDERFUL TO WORK

WITH RYAN BECAUSE WE HAVE

GOTTEN TO WORK TOGETHER

BEFORE, AND SO I THINK IT

IS EASY.

I KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO

DO SCENES WITH HIM.

I KNOW HE IS REALLY

GENEROUS.

I KNOW HE LIKES TO AD LIB.

I KNOW WE CAN IMPROVISE.

I GOT A CALL BACK.

WHAT?

COME ON.

FOR WHAT?

THE TV SHOW I WAS

TALKING ABOUT.

CONGRATULATIONS, THAT

IS INCREDIBLE.

I FEEL LIKE I SAID

NEGATIVE STUFF ABOUT IT

BEFORE.

I FEEL LIKE "REBEL WITHOUT

A CAUSE."

YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT?

I'VE NEVER SEEN IT.

OH, MY.

YOU KNOW IT IS PLAYING AT

THE RIALTO.

YOU SHOULD GO -- I'LL EVEN

TAKE YOU, YOU KNOW, FOR

RESEARCH.

FOR RESEARCH, YEAH.

IT IS A FILM ABOUT

PURSUING YOUR DREAMS

DESPITE THE OBSTACLES.

THAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU

EITHER HAVE DONE OR YOU

HAVEN'T HAD THE LUXURY OF

DOING, BUT EITHER WAY IT

IS A THEME THAT RESONATES

WITH MOST PEOPLE.

MAYBE I'M NOT GOOD

ENOUGH.

YES, YOU ARE.

MAYBE IT'S A PIPE

DREAM.

THIS IS THE DREAM.

IT IS CONFLICT AND

COMPROMISE AND IT IS VERY,

VERY EXCITING.

I HOPE WHAT PEOPLE CAN

TAKE AWAY FROM IT IS THAT

HOPE AND DREAMING IS NOT

FOR NOTHING.

IT IS NOT POINTLESS.

*

Efrem: AND "LA LA

LAND" IS AVAILABLE ON

D.V.D., BLU-RAY, AND ALL

THINGS DIGITAL.

CHECK IT OUT.

> AND STILL TO COME ON

"STUDIO 5"...WE'RE ON THE

RED CARPET WITH THE ACTORS

BEHIND A POWERFUL SCENE IN

THE FILM "THE CASE FOR

CHRIST."

[YELLING]

COME ON, BABY, BREATHE.

LOOK AT DADDY.

BREATHE.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE ALL

RIGHT.

I LOVE YOU.

TAMMY: WELCOME BACK.

Efrem: WE ARE JUST

ABOUT OUT OF TIME FOR THIS

SHOW, SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK

AT NEXT WEEK.

* SO LEAD ME, JESUS, AND I

WILL FOLLOW YOU *

Efrem: SAMPLE THE

SOUNDS OF GRAMMY

AWARD-WINNING SONGWRITER

SONGWRITER...

YOU HAVEN'T PUT THIS

LABEL ON YOU, BUT THERE IS

A LABEL OUT THERE ON YOU,

ALTERNATIVE CHRISTIAN

MUSIC.

WHAT IS THAT?

IF YOU TELL ME, THEN

WE'LL BOTH KNOW.

* BLOOD CAN WASH AWAY MY

SINS *

* NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF

JESUS *

Efrem: AND I HOPE

YOU'LL JOIN ME NEXT WEEK

FOR THAT STORY.

AS FOR THIS WEEK, I'M

GIVING THE FINAL WORD TO

L. SCOTT CODWELL, WHO

STARS IN "THE CASE FOR

CHRIST."

SHE DELIVERS MY FAVORITE

LINE IN THE FILM: "IT'S NO

ACCIDENT.

IT'S JESUS."

TAKE A LOOK.

COUGH, BABY.

COUGH, BABY.

OKAY, JUST BREATHE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO

THANK YOU.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO THANK

ME.

SHE IS GOING TO BE FINE

NOW.

WE'RE SO LUCKY.

WELL, IT'S NOT LUCK.

IT'S JESUS.

SOMETHING TOLD ME I NEED

TO BE HERE.

THE MAIN THING IS --

AND I'M ONLY GOING TO TELL

YOU THIS -- I WAS HAVING A

CRISIS OF FAITH AT THE

TIME THAT THIS ROLE CAME

TO ME.

AND IT GAVE ME AN

OPPORTUNITY TO DO SOME

QUESTIONING OF MY OWN AND

NOT JUST DO SOME

QUESTIONING, BUT DO SOME

LISTENING TO THE ANSWERS I

WAS GETTING.

YEAH.

Efrem: THAT'S

POWERFUL.

I MEAN, DOES IT GET ANY

MORE POWERFUL THAN THAT?

YOU KNOW, BECAUSE THAT

SENTIMENT THAT I EXPRESSED

TO LESLIE IN THE FILM WHEN

WE FIRST MEET, THAT IT WAS

JUST JESUS.

I MEAN, YOU

KNOW...EVERYTHING,

ANYTHING, WHEN YOU SAY

WHO, WHAT, WHERE, HOW,

WHATEVER, THAT'S THE

ANSWER FOR EVERYTHING.

AND SO IT JUST DOESN'T GET

ANY REALER THAN THAT.

Efrem: IT IS NO

ACCIDENT; IT IS JESUS,

INDEED.

THAT IS A GOOD WORD AND

THE FINAL WORD FOR THIS

EDITION OF "STUDIO 5."

UNTIL NEXT TIME, REACH OUT

AND TOUCH ME AT EFREM

GRAHAM ON Facebook,

TWITTER, AND INSTAGRAM,

AND THEN YOU COME ON BACK

AND SEE WHERE "STUDIO 5"

TAKES YOU NEXT
