The Story of The Song
The Song: Couples Kit is designed as a supplementary tool to go along with the feature-length film The Song, starring Alan Powell from Anthem Lights. The film is touching and inspiring story full of heartwarming moments heartache as it takes direct inspiration from the story of Solomon and his book Song of Solomon. The story of Solomon is sad and discouraging one, as we see a man who was wise and close to God drawn away slowly by the allure of the world and other women in his life. The Song directly echoes this story, however, it ends with a strong message of redemption, showing the power of forgiveness and how it can conquer even the worst of sins.
As we know from the story of Solomon, he was the son of David and was heir to the throne once his father David passed away. Solomon had the strong example of his father David to live up to and at first it really appeared that he was going to. Solomon became a well-respected and liked king and was considered very favorable in the eyes of his people. God appeared to him one night and told him that anything Solomon wanted he would give to him. Solomon knew he could ask to be the wealthiest man of all time, or the most powerful man. But instead, Solomon chose to ask for infinite wisdom, asking God that he would give him the necessary wisdom and discernment needed to govern the kingdom. God was pleased with this answer, and because Solomon chose to ask for wisdom rather than riches, God chose to give him everything he hadn't asked for, including riches and power. Shortly after, Solomon became the most powerful and richest man to have ever lived. Everything he could possibly want he was given. Sadly, because of this, the other kingdoms took notice of him, and they gave Solomon their daughters in marriage so as to form good relationships with Solomon. Soon, Solomon had thousands of wives and concubines, more than any man to have ever lived. Because of this, the wives demanded that Solomon start worshipping their gods and building temples for all the different gods. While Solomon was initially reluctant, he eventually gave into his wives, building hundreds of temples to other gods. And because of this and all of the women in his life, he was driven away and eventually left God entirely.
In The Song, we see this happen to the main character, Jed King. Jed is a singer and songwriter, and he's determined to take his act straight to the top. He falls in love at a young age with a beautiful young girl named Rose and when they get older, he marries her and starts a family with her. They are happily married and truly in love, and it seems that their relationship is destined to go for as long as they live. Jed and Rose are a picture perfect couple, but as Jed's singing career slowly begins to take off, Rose more and more finds herself left behind, with Jed heading off on more and more tours. When Jed starts opening with other musicians, including a sultry young star, he begins to find himself increasingly drawn away from Rose, and drawn toward other more worldly options. This is when Jed begins to lose his faith and lose his love in pursuit of otherworldly choices.
