Pattie Mallette, best known to millions as Justin Bieber's mom, has signed on as the executive producer for the new short film, "Crescendo." Based on a true story, "Crescendo" takes place in the 18th century Holy Roman Empire where a series of events turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary experience that changes the life of one woman. Written and directed by Alonso Alvarez, the film stars Ali Landry, Montserrat Espalde, Patrick Nuo, Jennifer Cadena. The short movie was filmed entirely on the Universal Studios back lot.
"Crescendo" has already won numerous awards at recent film festivals including the Crystal Heart award at the 2011 Heartland Film festival and top short film honors at the Hollywood Film Festival.
“My hope through this involvement is to encourage young women all over the world, just like me, to let them know that there is a place to go, people who will take care of you and a safe home to live in if you are pregnant and think you have nowhere else to turn,” says Mallette.
In her memoir "Nowhere But Up" published by Revell in September 2012, Mallette describes the trauma, abuse and addiction of her early childhood and adult years. The book recounts the story of the help she received from a pregnancy center, when she found herself scared and unprepared as a young teenager pregnant deciding not to abort the unborn Justin Bieber. Mallette credits the pregnancy center with giving her the life skills, hope, help and love which she says “saved their lives.”
Mallette fought hard as a single mother to rise above her painful past of abuse and poverty and to create a better life for herself and her son, Justin. She will share her inspiring personal story at screenings worldwide, to help support the work of similar centers around the world.
