ABOUT THE FILM: SING stars Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey), a dapper koala and an eternally optimistic one at that, who puts on the world’s greatest singing competition to save his once-grand theater that is now crumbling before his eyes. Five lead contestants emerge Mike (Seth MacFarlane), a dapper mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena (Tori Kelly), an extremely timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), an overworked and underappreciated mother of 25 piglets desperate to unleash her inner diva; Johnny (Taron Egerton), a young gorilla looking to break free of his gangster family; and Ash (Scarlett Johansson), a punk rock porcupine with a beautiful voice behind her prickly exterior. The old theater is soon revived and the owner, Buster Moon, is surprised and in for the shock of his life.
There are some amazing songs in SING performed by various animals as their audition pieces. Some of my old favorites that I loved hearing. Christopher Cross's Ride Like the Wind, Van Halen's Jump, Sinatra's Pennies from Heaven, Cat Stevens' The Wind, Bananarama's song Venus and Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. Also, some pop music: Nicki Minaj's Anaconda, Katy Perry's Firework, Sia's Chandelier, Taylor Swift's Shake It Off, Sam Smith's Stay With Me, and Lady Gaga's Bad Romance.
My daughters LOVED that there was even some classic music in there! Vivaldi's The Four Seasons (Spring) Allegra, which they both love to play on their violins! Pachelbel's Canon in D Major and even a bit of opera. there is music for all audiences in SING!
Each of the final contestants in SING have cherished dreams of singing, and each of the five contestants have a back story that drag on your heart. By the end of the movie, we wanted all five contestants to be the winner! SING is truly about following your heart. A message I happily instill in my own children. Children must keep dreaming, just like the movie says. Children must keep hoping and maintain a positive attitude of never giving up and to not give up on your friends either. SING inspires all of us to hold onto our dreams!
I WOULD LIKE TO PAINT THE WAY A BIRD SINGS
