Grammy winning-hip hop star Pharrell Williams teamed up with gospel superstar Kim Burrell for a new inspirational tune for the “Hidden Figures” soundtrack titled, “I See A Victory.” The duo performed the song with a gospel choir this past weekend during The Toronto Film Festival. The outdoor performance also featured Grammy winner Lalah Hathaway.
“Hidden Figures” stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae as mathematicians Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson and Katherine Johnson, who served as the brains behind NASA’s space program. The women quickly rose the ranks of the organization and were known as “human computers.” The film also stars Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Mahershala Ali, “Underground” star Aldis Hodge, “Saints & Sinners” actress Maria Howell and “Greenleaf” actress Karan Kendrick. It’s based on the upcoming book, “Hidden Figures: The Story of the African-American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race” written by Margot Lee Shetterly.
