On December 21st, to accompany the movie’s release, the official music video for Faith from the movie Sing released as well!
You may think it’d be difficult to accompany a legend with a voice like Wonder’s, but Grande’s own high register compliments his well. In the visual for the upbeat track, Wonder’s lets loose his signature vocals — his fingers dancing along the piano as he sings — and then it cuts to Grande, dancing and singing down a city street as chalk outlines of the movie’s various animal characters come to life on the wall behind her.
Eventually, Grande and the animated cast come to join Wonder on stage to close the song, in a fun and cheery clip that will have you grooving along with the duo.
On November 4th, the full song of Faith by Stevie Wonder feat. Ariana Grande, written by Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco, was officially released, as part of the soundtrack for the original motion picture Sing. Listen to the song below!

The thing that I’m probably the most proud of, other than finishing our album, happened about five weeks ago with Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande. I did a song, “Faith,” for them to sing for an upcoming [animated] movie called Sing. Stevie came in around 6 p.m., Ariana arrived at 10, and we stayed up until 3 in the morning and talked music for hours.
On September 8th, Ariana Grande gave a subdued, solo performance of her new single “Side to Side” featuring Nicki Minaj on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. When she reached Minaj’s verse, the singer showed off her own rapping skills whole rhyming out her frequent collaborator’s part.
Grande announced her upcoming Dangerous Woman tour and played the Best Friends Challenge with the host. The pair had to choose questions from a box and guess each other’s answers. They also talked about Hairspray Live, and her collaboration with Stevie Wonder called Faith on the upcoming animated movie Sing.
