When Brian “Head” Welch first met his KoRn bandmates as a teenager, he couldn’t have known that within a few years they would become one of the most successful metal rock bands in the world.
“I developed an ear [for music] early on, and met the guys who would later become my bandmates in Korn. We recorded a record, hit the road and started gaining fans right away. It was nuts.”
The band’s success was beyond anything Brian expected, but hand in hand with fame and achievement, he also found addiction and self-destructive patterns that threatened the most important thing in his life – his relationship with his daughter.
“I ended up going to church…and I received Christ in my heart that day, and that’s when I [shot my first film with I Am Second].”
When Brian first filmed with I Am Second, he described the moment when, at his lowest, he asked for God’s help and felt a profound and overwhelming love pour into his life. But, what happens then? What happens after a life-changing moment where real hope and freedom feel possible for the first time in a long while?
“The crazy thing is, when I shot the I Am Second movie, my life was really complicated…Everything I tried to do was failing – career wise, music wise…”
Change is difficult. It’s a process that can be messy and complicated and painful. In this Second Edition, years after Brian’s first film, his story is still a story of the hope he found in that moment with God where he felt his life begin to change, but it’s also about all the moments after – moments of loss, pain, uncertainty, trust and ultimately, restoration.
