A Week Away is the first faith-based musical of its kind. Troubled teen Will Hawkins (Kevin Quinn) has a choice to make - go to juvenile detention or attend a Christian summer camp.

We also discussed the music for the movie. You might be familiar with the sounds, however the music is completely new, the film’s soundtrack features vintage CCM hits such as Amy Grant’s “Baby, Baby” (1991), Steven Curtis Chapman’s “The Great Adventure” (1992) and “Dive” (1999), Michael W. Smith’s “Place in This World” (1990), and Audio Adrenaline’s “Big House” (1993), all reimagined and revamped to engage today’s listeners. The soundtrack also features a mashup of Rich Mullins’ “Awesome God” (1988) and For KING & COUNTRY’s “God Only Knows” (2018).
The film’s music producer, Adam Watts (High School Musical 3, Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert), has penned four original songs for the film: “Best Thing Ever,” “Let’s Go Make a Memory,” “Where I Belong” and “Good Enough.”
Here it is one of the songs from the movie:
