I Can Only Imagine, (Lionsgate, 2018), is the inspiring and unknown true story behind MercyMe's beloved, chart topping song that brings ultimate hope to so many. The song "I Can Only Imagine" not only topped the Christian music charts, it was also a major hit on country and contemporary radio stations as well.
