Movie release: Unsung Hero

David Smallbone and his wife and their seven children leave Australia to rebuild their lives in America.

The highly anticipated faith-based music feature Unsung Hero tells the story of the upbringing of Grammy Award-winning Christian artists Rebecca St James and FOR KING + COUNTRY and is coming to cinemas in Australia and New Zealand on 30 May 2024.


Based on a remarkable true story, Unsung Hero follows David Smallbone as he moves his family from Australia to the United States, searching for a brighter future after his successful music company collapses.

With their seven children and nothing more than 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.


The film is being released under Kingdom Story Company, the production team behind the blockbuster hit ‘Jesus Revolution’, in conjunction with Candy Rock Entertainment, owned by actress Candace Cameron Bure.
