If you read my recent articles about The Imposter, you may have wondered how Kerry Livgren of Kansas(?!) came to be a supporting actor in the Christian film The Imposter.  The director of the film Daniel Millican explained the process by which they aquired this rock legend for their film on his blog.   Read the story here.  It just goes to show you: sometimes all you’ve gotta do is ask.

If you don’t know the name Kerry Livgren or even the name of the band Kansas, you’ll probablly recognize their two most popular songs; both of which have stood the test of time as standards of classic rock radio.  Open Kansas’ official website this link to hear the opening lines of “Carry on My Wayward Son.”   While there, you can also hear their well known “Dust in The Wind” (track 8 on music player.).

The Soundtrack for the Imposter features a remake of the Kansas classic; Carry On My Wayward Son with Kerry Livgren playing on guitar and Kevin Max of DC Talk doing vocals.  Some have said that the music in the film alone makes it worth watching, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.  You can watch the music video at The Imposter Facebook Page . I love the video, and I think it’s a great promo for the film.   While you’re there, you may want to consider bringing The Imposter to your church.

The Imposter is currently only available for church showings, but will be available on DVD within the next year. Visit the official website to set up a church showing or join theirFacebook page.
