Faith

  • Stevie Wonder recorded this track for the soundtrack of the animated comedy Sing. It marks the first song that Stevie Wonder contributed to a film in over 25 years.
  • "Faith" was produced by hitmakers Ryan Tedder [Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love," Timbaland's "Apologize," Beyoncé's "Halo."] and Benny Blanco [Ke$ha's "TiK ToK", Katy Perry's "California Gurls," Rihanna's "Diamonds"].
  • The song also features the voice of Ariana Grande. Speaking during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Grande said being in the recording studio with the Motown legend was something she will remember for the rest of her life.

    "Not only did I get to sing with him, but we were in the same booth, so it was like, me and Stevie Wonder arm in arm, holding hands in the booth, singing together, laughing, having a good time," she smiled. "Every time I got comfortable with the fact that I was in a booth, arm in arm with Stevie Wonder, he would hit a Stevie run, and I'd be like, 'Oh, s--t, that's Stevie Wonder.'"
