THIS IS US fans are loving Chrissy Metz as an actress, and now singer. She leaps to the big screen this Easter in the movie BREAKTHROUGH.
BREAKTHROUGH is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction.
This Is Us TV star Chrissy Metz, who is playing the lead role of Joyce Smith in the movie, made her national live television singing debut Sunday night on the ACM Awards in Las Vegas. The actress premiered her song “I’m Standing with You” from the Breakthrough soundtrack and was joined onstage by country stars Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina, and Maddie & Tae.
Local movie showtimes begin April 17th.
