LOS ANGELES, Calif. (April 12, 2024) — Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Jonas Myrin announces the release of his brand new single “Made For You.” Written and performed by Myrin specifically for the highly anticipated film, The Hopeful,” the track is available today with an accompanying music video via Re:Think, the distribution and label services division of Capitol CMG. Listen to “Made For You” here and watch the video here.

“The Hopeful” is a heartfelt and compelling historical drama that invites audiences of all ages to imagine how hope can change the world. The upcoming movie will be released in over 900 theaters nationwide on April 17 & 18 in partnership with Fathom Events, Hope Studios and Kyle Portbury Films. “The Hopeful” features a diverse cast and marks the first long form feature from Emmy Award winning and three-time Australian Director’s Guild nominated Kyle Portbury.

For a drama set in the 1800s, one of the most unique choices Portbury made was to collaborate with Myrin who has written with renowned artists such as Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Andrea Bocelli, Natasha Bedingfield and Nicole Scherzinger, among others.

Myrin contributes two original songs, “Hope Is on The Way” and “Made for You” – both written and performed by Myrin specifically for the film. He is also featured in “The Hopeful - Behind The Songs,” an exclusive cinema only prelude to the film hosted by Kevin Olusola of Pentatonix and co-host of the Imagine Faith Talk podcast.

“It’s been an honor to compose the original songs for Kyle Portbury’s visionary new movie,” says Myrin. “My aim was to craft a tapestry of hope through music and lyrics, echoing the film's empowering and profound message of finding faith in the midst of adversity. My hope is that these songs inspire audiences to find resilience and courage in their own journeys."

Adds Portbury, “'Made for You' was an incredibly collaborative experience with this beautiful original song becoming a key theme expression of Ellen's journey.”

About Kyle Portbury

Through one of his directing mentors, Bob Bladgen (“All Creatures Great and Small”), Portbury serendipitously secured his first filmmaking gig as a line producer on a documentary about Marvin Gaye – which put him on the road with the iconic singer’s two sisters. He soon got the opportunity to direct and produce “The Mountain Within,” a feature length documentary that followed disabled climbers up Mt. Kilimanjaro – an experience that led him to rediscover his acting training and realize that the most critical aspect of filmmaking is the fact that, metaphorically, it’s all about a character’s journey up some sort of mountain and back down again. Over the years, Portbury’s works include the short film “Swan Song,” a David and Bathsheba allegory; “Truth,” about abolitionist Sojourner Truth’s speech “Ain’t I a Woman,” that won him an Emmy; writing on a series of five minute animated shorts “Young David” for Angel Studios that collectively form a prequel to the2025 feature film he also wrote on called “David;” and “Beyond the Search,” a14-part faith based travel series for a global television network that was also dubbed into multiple languages. From 2015-2019, he was also an associate professor of film studies at Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, Texas.

About “The Hopeful”

William Miller’s faith is in ruins. After miraculously surviving a fierce battle in the War of 1812, Miller questions why God spared him. His search for wisdom leads to an astonishing prophecy — the world is going to end. “The Hopeful” unfolds as a story of a man burdened with the knowledge of Christ’s return. Miller’s message resonates with some - even as it is scorned by others. When a young woman named Ellen Harmon listens to one of his sermons, she is transformed by the message. And through her, witness the message that begins to take hold. Her preaching grows beyond prophecy and develops into a more holistic vision for how Christians should live and worship. We see blossoming the seeds of a new global movement of faith — the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
