Candace Cameron Bure

On Wednesday, April 10, 2024, at 5 PM, the Hub for Spiritual Life will host an exclusive pre-screening of Unsung Hero, the upcoming American Christian drama film by Lionsgate directed by Richard Ramsey and Joel Smallbone. The screening will be followed by a Q and A with one of the film’s stars, Candace Cameron Bure, who will be a guest speaker at the Well at 8 PM at the Amphitheatre on the Malibu campus. The event is free, but registration is required.

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 nothing more than their seven children, 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 on to theirs. With their own dreams on hold, David and Helen begin to realize 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.

Bure is an actress, producer, and New York Times best-selling author. She is beloved by millions worldwide for her roles as D.J. Tanner in the iconic family sitcoms Full House and Fuller House. She has also starred in many films, including romantic comedies, mysteries, and Christmas movies. Bure served as a former cohost of The View and danced as a finalist in season 18 of the reality competition Dancing with the Stars.
