TORONTO, Aug. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Spin Master Entertainment, Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies, announced today that Grammy Award®-winning singer-songwriter Alessia Cara will perform a new original song for the upcoming animated feature film, PAW Patrol : The Movie™ that will be unleashed in theatres and on streaming on Paramount + on August 20, 2021.
The new original song, titled "The Use in Trying", was written by Alessia Cara and Jon Levine, and produced by Jon Levine. Alessia's one-of-a-kind voice weaves a beautiful song that captures the sadness and uncertainty during a pinnacle moment in the film. Ultimately, "The Use in Trying" ends with a message that inspires hope.
"I wrote The Use in Trying for a specific scene in the movie, with the understanding that it was a big turning point in the story, emphasizing the importance of courage," says Cara. "I wanted to write something that could not only teach kids that they're not always going to win, but that there's real value in trying anyways because of the lessons you find on the other side. That's a sentiment we can all understand, the further into life we go. Navigating life is never easy, but it is always worth the shot."
The single: "The Use in Trying", will be released on August 10, 2021 and will be available across all platforms. Alessia appears courtesy of Def Jam Recording, a division of UMG Recordings, Inc.
