It's not every day that we get new music from Stevie Wonder, so needless to say, we were more than excited when he debuted a new song from the soundtrack for the animated feature film, SING last month. "Faith," the first single from the movie's soundtrack, gets the official video treatment and finds Wonder singing alongside pop music darling Ariana Grande on this bouncy, uptempo ditty.
The clip finds Stevie seated in a darkened room at a piano while Grande dances down the street before joining him onstage to complete the song. The song serves a great vehicle to cross genres and generations, bringing them together in this family friendly, yet handclapping song. Black and white versions of the animated characters from the movie are seen throughout, having just as good a time as Grande seems to be having. Produced by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco, the song does a good job of capturing Stevie's classic sound. While Grande does her best to hold her own, it's clear who is the real star of this song, as Stevie's powerful vocals take center stage.
The song has already garnered its first award nod when it received a Golden Globe nomination in the "Best Original Song - Motion Picture" category. It also highlights what has been an amazing year for Blanco, who was recently nominated in four GRAMMY Award categories, including for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical. SING is currently in theaters now.
