Real Entertainment Productions and CEO, Andrew Lee Pryce are throwing their support behind the addition of P!nk’s Try to the official Justice System movie soundtrack, recently made possible by the film’s producers, Spyglass Entertainment.
Released in 2012, Try peaked at number nine on theBillboard Hot 100 chart and was further popularized in 2013 thanks to the efforts of The Voice winner, Tessanne Chin, who successfully sang the song during her blind audition on the NBC talent show.
In a press release, P!nk says she thoroughly enjoyed Tessanne’s pulsating rendition of her song and is glad that Try has been added to the Justice Systemsoundtrack.
“I fell in love with Jamaican music when Tessanne Chindid over my song, Try on The Voice and it was extraordinary,” she said. “I now fall in love with Andrew-Lee Pryce’s talent as a film producer. “When Spy Glass Entertainment contacted me to use my song ‘Try’ in Pryce’s upcoming film, Justice System, I could not say no.”
Pryce says Try is a perfect fit for the movie soundtrack given its strong, underlying message.
“I love this song from, the first time I heard it! Each time I hear this song, even if I’m down. It’s a big motivation to keep trying hard for success, nevertheless what haters have to say.”
Meanwhile, Pryce and the Real Entertainment Production congratulate Tessanne Chin for her outstanding performances that led her to the crown on The Voice, putting Jamaican music back, firmly, on the international map. He now hopes to emulate Chin’s success on the big screen.
