Netflix’s dance film ‘Feel the Beat’s premise is: “After blowing a Broadway audition, a self-centered dancer reluctantly returns home and agrees to coach a squad of young misfits for a big competition.”
Francois Klark is a South African born, Canadian singer-songwriter and producer. This Toronto based artist has caught the attention of music lovers, industry professionals and labels worldwide with his incredible songwriting and powerful vocal performances.
‘Feel the Beat’ ─ directed by Elissa Down and starring Disney’s Descendants’ Sofia Carson ─ utilizes indie singer/songwriter Francois’s dreamy, evocative song as a character and story piece.
It’s a beautiful match, for a film that depicts uplifting and coming-of-age quandaries for the conquering. The song, originally appearing on Klark’s 2018 debut album, ‘Love’.
The release of the film is accompanied by a Spanish version of “Always” (“Siempre”) performed by Carson, as well as an official ASL music video by Francois Klark starring culturally Deaf American Sign Language interpreter Sage Lovell and choreography by Matthew Fata featuring dancers Katie Hazard and Ian Chubb.
Feel the Beat (screenplay written by Michael Armbruster and Shawn Ku) boasts an impressive ensemble cast: Wolfgang Novogratz (Sierra Burgess Is a Loser), Donna Lynne Champlin (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Enrico Colantoni (Veronica Mars), and Lidya Jewett (Hidden Figures), among many others.
