OF FAME. WARNER IS A CLASS

ACT OF

FAITH.

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE CROSS

ULTIMATELY

DEFINED JESUS AND US.

IN WHAT MANY OF US SAW AS A

LOSS, HE

WON.

THAT IS THE WEEKLY COUNT

DOWN OF

THE BEST UP LIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT

NEWS.

RIGHT NOW WE WANT TO CHECK

IN WITH

OUR GUEST.

NIGHT LIGHT ANCHOR BYRON IS

THIS

WEEK'S INTERVIEW.

YOU WERE PRETTY CLOSE

BEING

DECLARED MENTALLY RETARDED?

YES.

HOW DID YOU GO FROM BEING

MENTALLY

RETARDED TO BROADCAST?

GOD'S GRACE. I WAS

BLESSED WITH A

PHENOMENAL MOTHER WHO PASSED

AWAY 4

YEARS AGO WHO BELIEVED WHAT

THE BIBLE

SAYS, I CAN DO ALL THINGS

THROUGH

CHRIST.

MY GOAL WAS TO BE A NETWORK

CORRESPONDENT, ALL THOSE

MARKERS I

MADE, BUT THE ULTIMATE GOAL

WAS TO

MAKE MY MOTHER PROUD.

THOSE THINGS OFF MUSIC AND

THINGS IN

THE SKY.

WHAT I SAW FOR MY MOTHER'S

LIFE, MY

OWN LIFE WAS THAT FAITH WAS

PRACTICAL

AND REAL. YOU CAN TOUCH IT.

THAT MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE

FOR ME.

FOLLOWING YOU ON SOCIAL

MEDIA YOU

SAID BEING BORN IN AMERICA

IS LIKE

WINNING THE LOTTERY.

AS A JOURNALIST FOR ME, I

HAVE

TRAVELED ALL OVER.

THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME.

THE PROMISE OF AMERICA IS NO

PLACE

LIKE HOME. ONLY IN AMERICA

YOU CAN

BECOME ANYTHING YOU WANT TO

BECOME.

LIKE I'M CHRISTIAN, YOU CAN

BE

JEWISH, YOU CAN BE HINDU,

YOU CAN

PRACTICE YOUR OWN RELIGION.

SO BEING

IN AMERICA, THERE IS NO

PLACE LIKE

HOME. IF YOU ARE BORN IN

AMERICA, YOU

HAVE A CHANCE NO MATTER

WHERE YOU

WERE BORN. YOU HAVE A

CHANCE.

YOU TALK ABOUT SIX KIDS,

ALL WHO

OVERCOME AMAZING OBSTACLES.

WHAT WAS

IT ABOUT THOSE SIX THAT YOU

WANTED TO

SHARE THEIR STORIES?

AT ONE POINT I WANTED

SEVEN

BECAUSE SEVEN IS A MORE

BIBLICAL

NUMBER BUT THE EDITOR SAID,

NO, CUT

IT DOWN TO SIX. THE FIRST

ONE WAS

TONYA, I MET HER A YEAR AGO

AFTER MY

FIRST BOOK CAME OUT.

THIS IS BALTIMORE. THIS

LITTLE GIRL

WAS 11 YEARS OLD AT THE

TIME. SHE

WAITED PATIENTLY TO TALK TO

ME.

SHE SAID, YOU WERE MY AGE

WHEN YOU

WERE GROWING UP IN

BALTIMORE, WHERE

DID YOU GO, WHERE DID YOU

HIDE WHEN

THE WORLD HURT YOU? COMES

TO FIND

OUT SHE WAS IN FOSTER CARE

AND THE

MORNING SHE TALKED TO ME SHE

WAS

BEING SEXUALLY ABUSED BY A

BOY IN HER

FOSTER CARE. BUT I WAS

STRUCK BY

THEIR CHILDHOOD WHETHER THEY

WERE IN

SCHOOL OR PRIVATE SCHOOL AND

WHERE

THEY OFTEN FEEL THIS BURDEN

IN THEIR

LIFE ABOUT BEING BULLIED. SO

I WANTED

THIS BOOK TO ADDRESS

BULLIES, SEXUAL

ABUSE, CHILD ABUSE, WAR,

OBESITY,

WHATEVER IT IS, THAT IT'S

MANAGEABLE.

WHERE DID YOU GO TO HIDE

WHEN THE

WORLD WAS HURTING YOU IN

BALTIMORE?

PRAYER.

YOU KNOW, AS HUMAN BEINGS,

NO MATTER

YOUR EXPERIENCE, YOUR DEGREE

OF

EDUCATION, WE HAVE THE

CAPACITY TO

THINK, BUT SO FAR, BUT WHEN

GOD IS ON

YOUR SIDE AND WHEN YOU CAN

SIT DOWN

IN PRAYER. MY MOTHER USED TO

LOVE TO

TAKE US TO A CHURCH REVIVAL

IN PART

BECAUSE YOU SEE PEOPLE HAVE

FARTHER

PROBLEMS THAN YOURS.

AMEN.

BUT JUST, LIKE THAT'S BEEN,

I MEAN, I

LEARNED TO PRAY. THE PRAYER

I SAY NOW

IS THE PRAYER I LEARNED AT

MY

MOTHER'S SIDE.

TO ALMIGHTY GOD, I COME TO

YOU AS

HUMBLE AS I CAN. SO, IF NOT

BY MY

MOTHER'S SIDE WAS IN GOD'S

PRAYER.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

THE BOOK.

IT'S WRITTEN FOR YOUNG

PEOPLE BUT A

BLESSING TO YOU NO MATTER

THE AGE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. MUCH

APPRECIATED.

THIS IS AVAILABLE RIGHT

NOW

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

UP NEXT.

UP BEAT WORSHIP.

HILLSONG YOUNG AND FREE

STOPS BY

STUDIO 5 ON THEIR YOUTH

REVIVAL STORY

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE

U.S..

IT WAS FORTUNATE WHERE WE

STARTED.

WE NEVER THOUGHT THAT WE

WOULD COME

Efrem: WELCOME BACK TO

STUDIO 5.

WE ARE IN CHICAGO FOR THIS

WEEK'S

COUNT DOWN FOR THE BEST

ENTERTAINMENT

NEWS.

NOW WE ARE ON NO. 3.

FOR NO. 3, WE CONTINUE

THE NFL

HALL OF FAME INDUCTION.

IF THIS WAS MY LAST DAY

ON EARTH

AND THIS IS MY FINAL SPEECH.

WHERE NFL SUPER STAR

DAMION

TOMLINSON PAYS TRIBUTE TO

HIS GREAT,

GREAT, GRANDFATHER GEORGE.

MY GREAT GRANDFATHER WAS

HERE FROM

AFRICA AS A SLAVE.

HIS NAME TOMLINSON WAS GIVEN

TO HIM

AFTER HIS LIFE HE WAS BORN

TO WAS

STOLEN. MY NAME BEGAN WITH

THE MAN

WHO OWNED MY GREAT, GREAT,

GRANDFATHERS.

NOW, IT'S PROUDLY CARRIED BY

ME, MY

CHILDREN, MY EXTENDED

FAMILY.

THE FAMILY LEGACY THAT BEGAN

IN SUCH

A CRUEL WAY HAS GIVEN BIRTH

TO

GENERATIONS OF SUCCESSFUL,

CARING,

TOMLINSONS.

I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT GOD

CHOSE ME TO

HELP BRING TWO RACES

TOGETHER UNDER

ONE LAST NAME, TOMLINSON.

AND NO. 2.

YOU CARRIED APRIL?

NO, I MARRIED HER.

FANS OF TV'S MOST

FAMILY-FRIENDLY

SHOW, THE MIDDLE, ARE

GETTING A FINAL

SEASON GOOD. THE SHOW DEBUT

IN 2009.

IN THIS TWEET, ABC ANNOUNCED

THE END

OF ONE OF ITS LONGEST

RUNNING COMEDY.

THEY LIKE YOU AND THEY

ARE CUTE.

THAT LEAVES ONLY ONE MORE

HEADLINE

OF THIS WEEK'S COUNT DOWN OF

THE BEST

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.

YOU WILL WANT TO STICK

AROUND FOR

THAT.

HILLSONG CAN COUNT AMONG

IT'S

YOUNGEST FANS JUSTIN BIEBER.

HILLSONG YOUNG AND FREE THIS

WEEK IN

WHAT'S PLAYING IN MY EAR.

MY FIRST QUESTION FOR YOU.

YOU WERE ON THE ROAD DURING

THE

MIDDLE OF THIS TOUR, WHAT DO

YOU MISS

THE MOST FROM BEING AWAY

FROM IT ALL?

MY DAD. BESIDE THAT, I

MISS BEING

BACK HOME.

BUT IT'S FUN BEING ON THE

ROAD.

ARE YOU SURPRISED AT HOW

MUCH

AMERICAN YOUNG PEOPLE LOVE

YOUR

MUSIC?

YEAH, I FEEL LIKE YOUNG

PEOPLE ARE

MORE OPEN TO JESUS THAN

EVER. SO IT

HAS BEEN AWESOME.

I THINK WHEN WE STARTED

YOUNG AND

FREE, WE NEVER THOUGHT WE

WOULD BE

COMING TO THE USA.

ALTHOUGH WE ALWAYS HOPED WE

WOULD BE

HERE AND LEADING IN WORSHIP.

IT'S BEEN AWESOME TO SEE

PEOPLE

RESPOND IN SUCH A POSITIVE

WAY. IT'S

AMAZING.

HOW DID YOUNG AND FREE

START? WAS

IT IN 2012 OR 2013. WHAT

HAPPENED?

IT USED TO BE A YOUTH

BAND. WE

GREW UP LISTENING TO THEIR

SONG AND

THEY STARTED GETTING MARRIED

AND

HAVING KIDS AND UNITED

FORMED ITS OWN

THING AND WE NEED TO BAND

AND EXPRESS

THIS.

SO THE PASTOR BRIAN AND

BOBBY AND

PETE WHO WERE YOUTH PASTORS,

THEY

SAID, LET'S START A BAND.

WE STARTED LEADING IN

WORSHIP AND

SINGING FRIDAY NIGHTS AND

IT FORMED

INTO THIS THING.

WE USED THE EXPRESSION OF

THIS CHURCH

AND THAT'S WHAT YOUNG AND

FREE IS.

THE CURRENT PROJECT THAT

YOU ARE

TOURING IS CALLED YOUTH

REVIVAL?

YES.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT AND

THE MUSIC

COLLECTION.

THAT WAS THE MANDATE THAT

WE WERE

TALKING ABOUT A WE WOULD

WRITE SONGS

THAT REPRESENTED OUR

MINISTRY, NOT

JUST SONGS THAT PEOPLE

WANTED TO

ULTIMATELY DANCE TO, BUT

SOMETHING

THEY CAN SHOW TO THEIR

FRIENDS AT

SCHOOL AND GET BEYOND THE

WALLS OF

THE CHURCH.

PEOPLE OFTEN ASK HOW CAN WE

KEEP

DOING THAT AND WRITING SONGS

LIKE

THIS AND IT'S WHAT WE LISTEN

TO AND

WHAT WE LOVE AND WHAT WE

CREATE. IT'S

ALWAYS BEEN A SUPERNATURAL

THING.

IT'S REALLY FUNNY. I FEEL

THAT GOD'S

HANDS HAS BEEN ALL OVER THIS.

IT HAS TO BE. AND WHAT IS

FUNNY ABOUT

THIS ALBUM AS WELL, NOT ONLY

HAVE WE

STEPPED FORWARD MUSICALLY

BUT

LYRICALLY AND HOW WITH GOD

WE HAVE

MOVED FORWARD AND THE

EXPRESSION OF

WHERE WE ARE AS A CHURCH AND

FAMILY.

YOU ARE IN ANOTHER

PROJECT SOON?

YES?

YES, ALWAYS WORKING ON

THE NEXT

THING.

YEAH, THERE COULD BE A

NEW SONG

COMING VERY SOON IN THE NEXT

COUPLE

OF WEEKS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THANK YOU FOR GIVING THIS

UP.

THIS COULD BE SOMETHING NEW

IN THE

WORKS.

I HAVE TO ASK YOU THIS

JUST

BECAUSE IT'S A HUGE NAME

HERE IN

AMERICA WHO REALLY REALLY

LOVES YOU.

JUSTIN BIEBER HAS BEEN

POSTING ON

INSTAGRAM, HIM AT YOUNG AND

FREE

CONCERTS, HIM DANCING AND

HIS

FAVORITE SONG IS "FALLING

INTO YOU".

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO HAVE

SOMEONE LIKE

THAT REALLY CHAMPION THE

MUSIC?

I THINK IT'S REALLY COOL

TO HAVE

SOMEONE AS INFLUENTIAL AS

HIM MAKING

A STAND FOR JESUS. AND THE

FACT THAT

HE LOVES THE MUSIC AND CAN

USE THIS

PLATFORM TO GET THE MESSAGE

OUT THERE

THAT JESUS AND WHO HE IS AND

WHAT

HE'S DONE IS JUST AN HONOR,

I GUESS.

YEAH, WE WANT TO KEEP

REACHING PEOPLE.

THE NAME WITH THE FAMOUS.

IT'S ABOUT

GOD AND THE PEOPLE.

HILLSONG YOUNG AND

FREE'S LAST

PROJECT IS CALLED YOUTH

REVIVAL, BUT

YOU CAN EXPECT NEW MUSIC IN

THE VERY

NEAR FUTURE.

STILL TO COME ON STUDIO 5.

THE CHURCH, THE FACT IS

PEOPLE IN

CHURCH ARE --

HE'S DOING ALL RIGHT,

ISN'T HE?

AN EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Efrem: WELCOME BACK TO

STUDIO 5.

WE ARE AT HOME IN CHICAGO

THIS WEEK.

RIGHT NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE

NO. 1

HEADLINE IN THE WEEKLY COUNT

DOWN IN

THE BEST ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.

AT NO. 1.

TODAY THE LORD HAS MADE.

LET US

REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT.

MINISTRY COULD BE IN THE

NEWS FOR

HILLARY CLINTON. THAT'S IN

THE

ARTICLE ON THE FORTHCOMING

DEVOTIONAL

FROM CLINTON'S PASTOR CALLED

"STRONG

FOR A MOMENT LIKE THIS".

IT'S BASED ON SCRIPTURES HE

SENT TO

HER DAILY.

THANK YOU FOR THIS

RECHARGE.

TO FEED THE HUNGRY, CLOTHES

THE POOR.

CLINTON RECENTLY TOLD HER

PASTOR,

SHE WANTS TO PREACH.

SCRIPTURE TELLS US THAT

FAITH

WITHOUT WORD IS DEAD.

> RIGHT NOW, A FIRST LOOK

AT A

POWERFUL FILM.

IT'S CALLED --

YOU WANT US TO TURN THE

LAND

AROUND THE CHURCH INTO A

FARM.

GOD SPOKE TO YOU?

YEAH.

WHAT DID HE SAY?

HE SAID I GIVE YOU LAND,

I GIVE

YOU FARMERS, DO THE MATH.

DO THE MATH.

THAT'S WHY ALL OF THESE

GOOD GUYS

IN THE MOVIE, MY BUDDY

DENNIS LEERY

CALLS ME AMERICA'S BOYFRIEND

BECAUSE

I HAVE JUST BEEN IN "SEX AND

THE

CITY" AND SERENDIPITY AND

BIG FAT

GREEK WEDDING.

YOU KNOW, ALL OF THESE

MOVIES WHERE

THE BOYFRIEND IS AND NOW I

WANT TO BE

A MINISTER. CAN'T I PLAY A

BAD GUY?

YOU CAN RAISE PHARAOHS IN

THERE.

WITH A VOICE LIKE THIS, I'M

WARNING

ABOUT TYPECASTING. I'M

GUESSING THE

TYPECASTING. YOU KNOW, THE

OLDER.

THEY NEED A LITTLE SQUATTING

CHURCH

LADY. BUT WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE

ABOUT

THIS IS SHE REMAINS ALL HECK

AND I

CAN TELL YOU EXACTLY THE

WOMEN I WAS

SPEAKING OF.

I GREW UP IN THE CHURCH.

SO I HAVE SEEN THE GOOD, BAD

AND THE

UGLY.

MY PART IN THIS MOVIE IS ONE

OF THE

UGLY .

SHE REMINDS ME OF A LOT OF

CHURCH

FOLKS WHO GET COMPLETELY OFF

FOCUS

FROM WHAT THE CHURCH IS

ABOUT.

THAT'S WHY I LOVE THIS

STORY.

AFTER I INVESTIGATED THE

WHOLE STORY

AND SAW THE FINISHED PRODUCT

AND THE

MOVIE, I WAS LIKE WOW.

THIS IS A MUST SEE STORY.

ESPECIALLY FOR A LOT OF

SMALL

CHURCHES OUT THERE.

START THE FARM, WORK

TOGETHER AND

SAVE THE CHURCH.

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

THIS MOVIE IS GOING TO

END UP IN

ABOUT A THOUSAND THEATRES

WHICH IS A

GREAT RELEASE FOR A MOVIE

LIKE THIS

THAT DOESN'T HAVE ANY

SPECIAL EFFECTS.

THIS MOVIE COSTS AS MUCH TO

WALK AND

GO SEE AS OPPOSED TO THIS

MOVIE THAT

HAS ALL OF THESE SPECIAL

EFFECTS.

PEOPLE WILL SEE THIS BECAUSE

THEY

THINK THEY ARE GOING TO GET

MORE

VALUE.

BUT IF WE CAN GET MORE

PEOPLE TO SEE

THIS MOVIE, WE CAN MAKE MORE

MOVIES

LIKE THIS.

WE'LL BRING YOU TO AN IN

DEPTH

LOOK TO ALL OF THESE IN THE

COMING

WEEKS.

UP NEXT ON STUDIO 5.

HE'S ACTUALLY THE FIRST

SINGER TO

RECORD A LEMONADE ALBUM.

CHICAGO'S OWN JAY QUEST IS

Efrem: WE ARE JUST ABOUT

OUT OF

TIME COMING TO YOU FROM

STUDIO 5 OUT

OF CHICAGO. A LOOK AHEAD AND

WHERE WE

ARE GOING NEXT WEEK.

THEY ARE SO POLLUTED THEY

CAN'T

EVEN SEE THE STARS.

IT IS A FILM ABOUT FAMILY

AND

ABOUT LEARNING THAT

EVERYBODY IS

TRYING TO LOVE YOU AS BEST

AS THEY

CAN.

TRADE PLACES WITH ANY OF

THEM.

DR. TAYLOR SAYS WE SHOULD

GO TO A

REAL SCHOOL.

A REAL SCHOOL?

THIS IS AS REAL AS IT

GETS, KID.

YOU LEARN FROM LIVING.

THEY ARE THESE PLANS THAT

SHE'S

BEEN WORKING ON HER WHOLE

LIFE AND

THIS IDEA THAT ONCE HE

STRIKES IT

RICH, ONCE HE MAKES THIS

MONEY HE'S

GOING TO BUY THIS HOUSE MADE

OUT OF

GLASS.

WE JUST MADE A PERFECT

LOCATION

AND GET TO WORK ON OUR

CASTLE.

THIS PLACE DOESN'T HAVE

ANY

RUNNING WATER OR ELECTRICITY.

IGNORE HER. SHE WAS BORN

WITHOUT

VISION.

IT'S THIS PLACE SHE'S

GOING TO GET

TO. THIS BEAUTIFUL PARADISE

AND

ALTHOUGH THEY NOW LIVING IN

SQUALOR.

I DIDN'T THINK THAT WOULD

HAPPEN

TO YOU. I CAN'T LET YOU.

IT WAS YOUR JOB TO

PROTECT US.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE

ANGRY.

JUST KNOW YOU LOVE HIM.

AND THAT'S JUST 1 STORY

FROM NEXT

WEEK'S RUN DOWN.

AS FOR THIS SHOW, I'M GIVING

THE

FINAL WORD TO HIP HOP ARTIST

JAMES

QUEST.

HE HAS A MESSAGE FOR

EVERYONE

ESPECIALLY YOUNG WOMEN.

THANKS FOR BEING

DIFFERENT.

THAT SAPPHIRE, THAT BEING

DIFFERENT,

LAYING ON THE GROUND AND

STAYING IN

YOUR PLACE. THAT'S THE SAME

PRISON

THAT I CAN'T VISIT.

MAN, I'M GOING. SO EYES

BEAUTIFUL

AND SHE AIN'T HAPPY UNTIL

SHE'S SEEN

HIM. IT HAS A GOOD SENSE

HUMOR AND

HOLD ONTO THAT AND YOUR

SEXUALITY TOO

BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO

TRY TO TAKE

THAT TOO AND MAKE THAT YOU.

A MESSAGE FOR THE BLACK

GIRLS OUT

HERE ON THE STREETS WHO

AGAIN FACING

OTHER PEOPLE'S DREAMS AND TO

KNOW

THEY ARE NATURAL AND TO BE

LOVED BY

GOD.

Efrem: I'M SURE TO BE

SHARING THAT

MESSAGE WITH MY OWN

DAUGHTER. THAT IS

FOR YOU. BE SURE TO VISIT US

ON

INSTAGRAM AND TWITTER AND

SNAPCHAT.
