RESTON, Va., Jan. 31, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Artists for Life supports songwriter Bruce Broughton and the song "Alone Yet Not Alone," and is calling on the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences to allow the song to compete with other selections for the Oscar award. Bruce Broughton, the composer of the song, former governor of the Academy and current executive committee member stated that "The marketing abilities of the other companies before and after the nomination far outstrip anything that this song was able to benefit from."
Albert Strong, Director of Artists for Life stated:
A petition has been created to help reverse this decision by the Academy
"We are saddened that the song 'Alone Yet Not Alone,' sung by AFL Affiliated Artist Joni Eareckson Tada, was removed as an Oscar nomination. Bruce Broughton has a long and distinguished career which deserves better treatment at the hands of the Motion Picture Academy. God will use this questionable ruling for His Glory and the song will be magnified through this episode more widely than we can know."
