The soundtrack includes three brand new recordings from Michalka (“Grace Trey,” the lead role in the movie), such as the key song “All I’ve Ever Needed,” which hit No. 1 on iTunes’ Christian Chart its first week out. I can understand why. This is the most beautiful song ever! Listen to it in the video below.
I get tears in my eyes every time I listen to that song! Other songs on the soundtrack feature artists TobyMac, Chris Tomlin, Jamie Grace (who plays “Rachel” in the movie … I love her song, too), Colton Dixon, Luminate, Josh Wilson, Shawn McDonald, and Nine Lashes. Here’s the song listing:

Listening to the soundtrack has really got me excited about seeing the movie, too! Here’s what it’s about:
A talented young singer and aspiring songwriter’s Christian faith and family ties are tested when she defies her worship-pastor father and pursues pop-music stardom in GRACE Unplugged, a moving and inspiring new film that explores the true meaning of success.
Grace Trey (AJ Michalka) has just turned 18 and aspires to do more than sing in her church’s worship band, which is led by her father, Johnny Trey (James Denton), a one-time pop star who gave up his life in secular music when he became a Christian. Grace longs to escape his shadow and make a name for herself singing songs about something other than God, but Johnny warns her that fame is not as glamorous as it looks and reminds her that serving and worshipping God with the talent she’s been given is a far more worthwhile goal.
When Johnny’s former manager, Frank “Mossy” Mostin (Kevin Pollak), shows up 20 years after the two parted ways to offer him another shot at the big time, Johnny declines the opportunity. But Grace takes it -- without telling her parents. She records a cover version of her father’s old Top 10 hit, runs away to Los Angeles and, under Mossy’s guidance, begins to taste the kind of success she’s always dreamed of. But with each rung of the ladder she climbs, Grace feels pressure to compromise her Christian values and learns not everyone who says they’re on her side really is. The one exception is Quentin (Michael Welch), an intern at her record company and a fellow Christian who urges Grace to reassess her choices and put God first again in her life. Will everything she experiences lead her to reject her faith … or rediscover it?
