REVIEWS

'Kindberg never inserts himself into the story as the documentarian and doesn’t provide any leading questions or commentaries; he simply turns the camera on Jernigan and lets him testify to what he sees as God’s redemption of his sexual brokenness.'

"Sing Over Me is a powerful movie about the possibility of change!"

The Dove Foundation

"We need more Christian filmmakers telling stories like this. Sing Over Me is humbling, powerful, convicting, riveting, heartbreaking and Christ-honoring."

Nathan James Norman

"Carefully edited, and professionally presented, Sing Over Me is a beautifully made film. Scenes are shot in such a way that the viewer cannot help but feel present in the locations. Jernigan is an engaging and likeable subject. His passionate recollections and soul baring honesty make his screen time captivating."

Jada Pryor - Faith and Entertainment

"Director/Producer Jacob Kindberg left no stone unturned and no measure of God’s grace unexplored. He wove the events of Dennis’ life into the concert footage and solo performances, providing a glimpse of the struggle and passion that built each song. Though there were many tears, the film captured Dennis’s tender heart and his ability to feel deeply in a world where people tend to avoid emotion.

Melinda Ledman - Christian Cinema

"In his autobiographical documentary, Dennis opens up his heart and soul and bravely shares struggles he has had in his life. His testimony is powerful."

"Sing Over Me challenged many of my assumptions about sexual orientation, and I was glad I saw it for that very reason. I don’t mind films that take a stand contrary to popular opinion so long as they are not overly bombastic. The writing, editing, and direction are professional quality."

Kenneth R. Morefield - 1More Film Blog

"No matter what your reaction to Jernigan’s biography, two things are for certain: 1. You will be held captive for 85-minutes of your life, unless you choose to flee the theater, and 2. You will have a strong reaction, unless you are in absolute agreement with Jernigan’s mindset...In closing, I recommend Sing Over Me, if for nothing else than to get the intellectual juices flowing."

Amy R. Handler - Film Threat

"I admire the mission of Dennis Jernigen and his willingness to be so vulnerable so publicly. I also admire the mission of Jacob Kindberg to tell Dennis’s story for as many as would be willing to hear it. It took profound courage for this film to be made and despite my criticisms, I’m very glad it was."

Reed Lackey - More Than One Lesson

"The interesting thing about Dennis, is that he recognizes that being gay is not a life choice, like so many other Christians believe. He openly admits his homosexuality and has since used it as a large part of his songwriting and inspiration. Unfortunately, he still views homosexuality with a negative connotation and likens it to the temptations that Jesus had to overcome."

“Sing Over Me is a story of God's special work in what some people regard as a hopeless circumstance. What we see is a God who is able and a heart that was open to God's work. A powerful combination leads to a fascinating story and makes for its own special song.”

“Sing Over Me is not the usual Christian fare; it is gritty yet beautiful, gut-wrenching while hopeful, and riveting throughout.  This movie has the potential to transform scores of people who have yet to be enthralled by God’s ravishing grace.”

"Sing Over Me is a beautiful and artistic, yet raw and honest portrayal of Dennis Jernigan. As a former homosexual and music lover, my soul connected with this film on multiple levels. The message of hope, love, compassion, faithfulness, and perseverance that Dennis personifies through his story of overcoming same-sex attraction and living out God's true plan for him is inspirational."

"It is superb! Everything about it was professionally done...I must admit that I teared up toward the end at the dramatic triumph of his struggle. The video has an emotional impact...With today's controversies over homosexuality invading the church, I believe the documentary will be a boon to any congregation, whether dealing with issues of homosexuality or not. It is an excellent testimony to those who believe their past makes their lives hopeless, showing the power of forgiveness and the power of Christ to turn one's life around."
