As we begin a new week, movie fans are gearing up for the highly anticipated release of the new DreamWorks animated feature, Home. This is especially true for Pop music fans. As previously reported in our new YouTube show, New Music Now, the film stars Rihanna as a teenaged girl, affectionately called Tip. That would have been enough to sell us, but it doesn’t stop there. In addition to support from big comedy names like Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons, and the legendary Steve Martin, American Idol Judge Jennifer Lopez is helping things out play the role of Lucy, Tip’s mother.
Just as Rihanna did with releasing her single “Towards The Sun”, J Lo is showing her support of the film on the music end with the release of “Feel The Light.” At the end of last week, Westbury Road Entertainment released the song’s official video to VEVO. Layered with references from the film, the video features Lopez as a space cadet, who’s uniform, just so happens to be a special affects layered white gowned.
Fox viewers were able to see a live performance of this spectacle on Thursday’s American Idol. Check it out below just in case you missed it. For more on the film’s soundtrack, which includes yet more music from Rihanna and Charlie XCX click here. Home hits theaters this Friday.
