When Mike issued the first WEekly Challenge to write a song based on a movie watched in the last 4 weeks, I went straight to my Netflix account to see what I had watched recently. It turns out I watch mostly documentaries(and tv shows). One of the best documentaries I’ve watched recently is “The Eyes of Tammy Faye”.
Narrated by RuPaul, this documentary tells the story of televangelist, singer, and all around cool person, Tammy Faye Bakker Messner. This movie has everything. Drug abuse, sex scandals, embezzlement, and puppets!
I found one of the most interesting things in the movie is “Heritage USA“, a Christian Theme Park resort built by Jim and Tammy Faye and the PTL Club(“Praise The Lord”). All of the money for this theme park came donations and it’s amazing to me how much money they were able to raise![audio:http://www.wewrotethebookonconnectors.com/WE1/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/01-Heritage-USA.mp3|titles=Heritage USA|artists=We Wrote the Book on Connectors]
So my song this week is a jingle for Heritage USA. It was really fun to make and I hope you enjoy. Hooray!!!
