In theaters, it’s THE STAR, released by Sony Pictures Animation. In the movie, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a loveable sheep who has lost her flock, and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become unlikely heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.

A standout track, “Can You See,” performed by Fifth Harmony was written and produced by hit-maker Aaron Pearce, and is already making waves at radio across the world. Pearce – known for his work with Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Stevie Wonder, and so many more – walked the white carpet at the film’s WORLD PREMIERE in Los Angeles, CA this past Sunday, November 12, 2017, with the ladies of Fifth Harmony: Lauren, Normani, Dinah and Ally. Speaking with press from all over the world, Pearce relayed his inspiration for the track and how he came to be involved: “I was very excited when my friend, Joey Arbagey, from Epic records and Spring Aspers from Sony Pictures asked me to craft a song for The Star,” Pearce stated. “The story of Christmas and the meaning behind it are very dear to my heart, so I wanted to write and produce a song that the whole world could sing and enjoy for years to come. And having Fifth Harmony record it was a true joy, and such a great experience to work with them again. They are all so talented and did such an amazing job on the song. I can’t think of anyone better to perform it.”
