The Annie Original Motion Picture Soundtrack came out November 17th, 2014 and the tunes are getting us all excited for film hitting theaters on December 19, 2014.
Both Funbmi and I are huge fans of the Annie (1982). And I love the Annie franchise overall; I have both the 1982 Annie and the TV movie Annie (1999) that was directed by Rob Marshall on DVD. My love doesn’t stop with the filmed productions, if I had the pennies I would go and see Annie the musical in each city the touring company performs in.
Now with Annie (2014) hitting theaters on December 19, 2014, I’m preparing my body with the great tunes from the Annie Original Motion Picture Soundtrack that came out November 17th, 2014. The Annie soundtrack has songs that appear in the film, but new songs from my favorite songstress Sia.
