Dennis Quaid celebrated the premiere of the Christian-themed movie "I Can Only Imagine" this week and he also released a Christian song he personally wrote and sang for the film's soundtrack.

According to Quaid, he said that he never heard the famous song of MercyMe's Bart Millard until he finished reading the script of the movie. The actor also added that it had lasting impact to him.

"It hit me so profoundly, in the heart, in a place where I just don't even have words," Quaid said.

Quaid also shared that his song "On My Way to Heaven" was written as a tribute to his mother for her 91st birthday. He said that he wrote for her because she has always been there and her faith is solid and unquestionable.

"So I wrote it for her, but I guess it's my story," he added.

The actor also revealed that he and his brother were baptized as Christians but he didn't really start searching God and reading the Bible until he turned 20's.

Quaid started writing his song a couple years ago but never played it in public and never finished it until he got the role of Bart's father in "I Can Only Imagine."
