Go away a Remark
Certainly one of this weekend’s newest choices from Netflix is a candy coming-of-age drama from All The Vivid Locations’ director Brett Haley, All Together Now. The brand new launch stars Moana’s Auli’i Cravalho as Amber, a proficient highschool senior on her strategy to audition for Carnegie Mellon regardless of the private challenges she is going through. The music chosen for her audition holds a particular place in Amber’s coronary heart that carries her via the movie.
Whereas talking to the All Together Now solid, additionally together with Runaways’ Rhenzy Feliz, One Day At A Time’s Justina Machado and Scrubs’ Judy Reyes, I requested them if there was a music that has helped them get via their very own auditions. Try the second from our interview beneath:

One which she considered straight away was Christina Aguilera’s Stunning, an empowering early ‘00s monitor, which Judy Reyes appeared to co-sign. Reyes mentioned her audition picks vary relying on what she’s auditioning for, however she sang a stunning pattern of a Donny Hathaway music she popped on earlier than.
The central audition music in All Together Now is named “Feels Like Residence,” which is a spotlight of the movie, as Amber and her mom (Machado) discover themselves at odds whereas taking shelter on the varsity bus she drives in the course of the day. It’s also possible to try a part of my interview with the movie’s director Brett Haley, who solely confirmed that the Grease prequel he is creating will probably be a “full on” musical.
