AloneYetNotAlone-webEnthuse Entertainment’s family-friendly drama Alone Yet Not Alone garnered a 2014 Oscar nomination for Best Original Song. The nominated title song was written by written by Bruce Broughton and Dennis Spiegel and sung by best-selling author and artist Joni Eareckson Tada.

The title track single is available to audiences digitally through iTunes. The full soundtrack, composed by William Ross, will be available in stores in 2014.

No DVD release information has yet been announced. An Alone Yet Not Alone YA book by Tracy Leininger Craven was released in December by Zonderkidz.

Alone Yet Not Alone tells the story of Barbara and Regina Leininger and their journey of faith and survival during the French & Indian Wars in 1755. Captured by the Delaware Indians in a raid on their home and transported across 300 miles of wilderness to Ohio, the sisters are sustained only by their trust in God and their hope of escape against all odds to be reunited with their family. 

In its limited theatrical release in September 2013, Alone Yet Not Alone became the highest-grossing film opening weekend in terms of per-screen average reaching $13,396 per screen in its limited opening in select cities. This per-screen average surpassed the per-screen average of most other wide-release movies, including Enough Said (which did $9,238 per screen) and Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 ($8,439 per screen), ranking Alone Yet Not Alone as one of the highest per-screen-average independently released faith-based films to date, according to an Enthuse Entertainment representative.

The 86th Annual Academy Awards will be held March 2 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Calif.
