Tuesday Tunesday: Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing

Happy Tunesday, friends! Last night I finally had the chance to sit down and watch Universal Pictures’ animated hit, Sing, and I haven’t stopped singing and dancing since. In fact, I felt so many emotions while watching the movie and connecting with most of the characters, that that experience is what has inspired today’s post. Among all the characters Sing follows, there’s an optimistic koala bear with unstoppable dreams, a gorilla who longs for a different life than the one his father has forced upon him, a pig who’s bored of her domesticated life and yearns for more, and a shy elephant who’s introversion and self-doubt hinder her from achieving greatness. What’s beautiful about each of these narratives is that, in most cases, we are them and they are us. They are very real and the challenges and set-backs each character faced are challenges we experience daily in some form. So, whether these are adversities we encounter beyond our control or because we got in our own way, Sing challenges us to go after our dreams–both big and small, and believe in ourselves, and if we hit a few bumps along the way or fall flat on our faces, which we will, Sing reminds us to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and keep going. Here are a few songs from the film that beautifully captures those sentiments. Take a listen:

“I’m Still Standing” sung by Taron Egerton 

“Set It All Free” sung by Scarlett Johansson

“Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing” sung by Tori Kelly
