Book & Lyrics
KATHIE LEE GIFFORD
Formerly titled "Saving Aimee", it tells the story of Aimee Semple McPherson, the world's first media superstar evangelist. She was a woman whose passion for saving souls equaled her passion for making sensational headlines and attracting overflow crowds throughout the world. Set in 1920's Los Angeles, holiness collides with Hollywood in this tale of an evangelist's charismatic rise to fame amidst scandalous love affairs and growing controversy, inevitably ending in her much-publicized fall from grace.
