The Academy award-winning actress sang Taylor Swift’s song for her upcoming animated film ‘SING’
Reese Witherspoon recently revealed why she has a whole new respect for Taylor Swift. The actress had to sing Taylor Swift song “Shake It Off” for her movie ‘Sing’ which is set to release in India on 30th December, 2016.
Talking about singing, Reese said on The Today Show, “Country music is much easier for me. Singing Taylor‘s song ‘Shake It Off’ was really hard. I happened to run into her while I was making the movie and I was like, ‘I have a new appreciation for how hard you work.’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, I work really hard.’”
Witherspoon lent her singing voice to Rosita, a talented pig in Sing.
Featuring more than 65 hit songs, Sing is produced by Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy. Together, they have produced all of Illumination’s films since the studio’s inception.
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, SING stars Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal—some might even say delusional—optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
Five lead contestants emerge: Mike (MacFarlane), a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena (Kelly), a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita (Witherspoon), an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny (Egerton), a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash (Johansson), a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.
Each arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life. And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.
SING releases in India on 30th December, 2016.
