Reel to Reel: I Hope You Dance: The Power And Spirit Of Song

Ahead of its premiere on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 26, 2015 9pm ET/PT, 8pm C, the GRAMMY Museum will host a special screening of the documentary I Hope You Dance: The Power And Spirit Of Song. The film highlights the power of music to inspire, heal and change people's lives. Dr. Maya Angelou, Brian Wilson, Graham Nash, Joel Osteen and Vince Gill, as well as country artist Lee Ann Womack, share their unique perspective on themes explored in the film, the nature of creativity and its ability to touch and inspire. Additionally, the film showcases true stories of people whose lives have been lifted and impacted by "I Hope You Dance" — a No. 1 GRAMMY Award-winning song, which was written by Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers and recorded by Womack — and its message of hope and faith. It is written and directed by John Scheinfeld (U.S. vs John Lennon, Who is Harry Nilsson?) and produced by Spencer Proffer. Following the screening, GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli will host a panel discussion with Scheinfeld, Sanders, and life coach/speaker Tim Storey, who wrote the foreword to the accompanying book. This program is free. GRAMMY Museum members receive priority seating. Doors open at 7 p.m. To RSVP, email [email protected].
