Ariana Grande + Stevie Wonder Hang With ‘Sing!’ Critters in ‘Faith’ Video
The video for "Faith," Stevie Wonder's song for the animated film Sing, finally has a video, costarring feature Ariana Grande. In it, Ariana rocks vintage-y overalls (and that blonde wig she previewed on Instagram) and frolics with the animated creatures from the movie before taking her place beside Stevie on the piano bench.
In keeping with the buoyant tone of Sing, which is from the same studio that made The Secret Life of Pets, Ariana and Stevie's soundtrack contribution is a soulful bop that may leave moviegoing toddlers dancing in the aisles upon the film's December 21 release — and it's now up for a 2017 Golden Globe for Best Original Song, Motion Picture.
Like "Happy," Pharrell's theme from Despicable Me (another film from Illumination Entertainment) or Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling" for the Trolls soundtrack, the lighter-than-air "Faith" may prove catchy enough to appeal to mass audiences ahead of the film's release. And that's no accident: The soundtrack tapped pop hitmakers Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco to write the song, Rolling Stone reports.
Ariana spread news of "Faith" on November 2, and she was excited as anyone would be if they were featured on the same song as Stevie Wonder.
"I'm on a song with Stevie Wonder and it comes out soon," the "Side to Side" singer tweeted. "I also really can't believe that what I just said is an actual thing."
Listen to "Faith" above. Sing, which features the voices of Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Matthew McConaughey, Tori Kelly and Scarlett Johansson, hits theaters on December 21.
