Machine Gun Preacher, a biopic starring Gerard Butler, that is set to release soon, talks about the life of Sam Childers, a former junkie and biker who turned his life around and became a messiah for many Sudanese orphans.
Apparently, Childers, whose life the film is based on, as a special request, asked for a song to be added to the soundtrack of the film. Recorded by the Australian musician Aaron Hendra, it’s called One Man’s War..., which is the name of Childers’ book as well.
The song ends with a chorus sung by the 300 Sudanese children now living at Childers' orphanage.
For the song, Aaron went to Africa and spent over a week with the children that Childers rescued. The Australian musician feels that the song is a brilliant piece of work and will leave a lasting impression on people’s hearts.
Unfortunately the song did not make it to the official movie soundtrack released on iTunes but is available on YouTube.
The released compilation consists of some great tracks from Asche and Spencer (Monster’s Ball) accompanied by a 60-piece Slovak National Symphony Orchestra.
The symphony was recorded in a historic facility outside Vienna, Austria, in the town of Bratislava and was conducted by Vladimir Martinka. The soundtrack also features the song The keeper... by Chris Cornell.
