Legendary singer/composer Charles Wright’s mega-hit song “Express Yourself” has been chosen to provide the thematic thrust for what promises to be the breakout animation movie of 2017

Legendary singer/composer Charles Wright’s mega-hit song “Express Yourself” has been chosen to provide the thematic thrust for what promises to be the breakout animation movie of 2017 (August), a 3-D computer-animated summer release entitled The Emoji Movie. This state-of-the-art film is a Sony Pictures Animation, and it brings to life the images used by nearly everyone in online messaging today. The movie’s hilarious screenplay is based on the story by Eric Siegel and Tony Leondis. Leondis also directs the film, and Michelle Raimo Kouyate is its producer. At the 2016 CinemaCon (a meeting of theater owners), it was announced that The Emoji Movie would be set in the digital world — in a smartphone. Very smart! The film’s eclectic cast includes T.J. Miller,Ilana Glazer, and James Corden. And, oh yes! Originally entitled Emoji Movie: Express Yourself, the name was changed to The Emoji Movie only weeks ago. “Express Yourself,” a smash hit in the 1970s and perhaps the most familiar commercial tune today, was composed and produced by world-famous musician, composer, and entrepreneur Charles Wright. The tune was selected because of its enormous success and decades-long airing in endless television commercials, including the iPad, and on sensational movie soundtracks. Interestingly, a great theme song in a trailer and a movie can do wonders in generating subtle interest in a film. When you witness this movie in August, notice how the storyline and Wright’s undulating vocals dovetail to an inseparable union
