Pharrell premiered an original song from the soundtrack for Hidden Figures, an upcoming drama he’s producing and composing the music for, following a Facebook Live Q&A with the cast on Sunday. The new track is titled “I See a Victory.”
The footage is a recording from the concert held at the Toronto International Film Festival Saturday night. Pharrell sang a number of the original songs from the film, and singer Kim Burrell and gospel choir Echoes of Praise later came out for “I See a Victory.”
Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe star as the three leads in Hidden Figures, a film about three African-American women who were instrumental in helping NASA launch astronaut John Glenn into orbit. The actors were present for the concert in Toronto as well as the Facebook Live session.
“I also want all the young girls regardless to what color you are, I want you to see this film and recognize that not only can you do it, but it’s actually already been done,” Pharrell said.
Watch the Facebook Live Q&A below, and skip to the 14:40 mark to see the premiere of “I See a Victory.”
