The SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME WEST COAST COMMITTEE is presenting a private industry Q&A for SHOF and AMPAS members with OSCAR-nominated and GRAMMY-winning artist/songwriter, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, this FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17th, as well as a 3D screening of DREAMWORKS’ animated film, "Trolls," at the FOX ZANUCK THEATRE at 20TH CENTURY FOX STUDIOS in LOS ANGELES. TIMBERLAKE will be joined by his fellow OSCAR-nominated co-writer/producers MAX MARTIN and SHELLBACK.
The discussion will be moderated by legendary songwriter and SHOF inductee, BILL WITHERS, offering an "intimate, behind-the-scenes" look at how the film’s music and global hit songs including, “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” were imagined and crafted. Besides recording “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” for the soundtrack and serving as the film's Executive Music Producer, TIMBERLAKE voiced the character “Branch.” The song just won the GRAMMY last weekend for Best Song Written For Visual Media.
Commented SHOF President/CEO LINDA MORAN: “The SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME is honored to present this event and to give our guests a close-up encounter with the multi-talented JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE. What an incredible opportunity and great privilege to be in the presence of JUSTIN, the wizard BILL WITHERS, MAX MARTIN and SHELLBACK -- all prolific songwriters with the midas touch! Listen and learn!”
Added SHOF WEST COAST Events Chair MARY JO MENNELLA: “The WEST COAST SHOF team is absolutely thrilled to bring together several of the world’s finest songwriters to present the film 'Trolls' and showcase the extraordinary talents of JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE. The collaboration between HOLLYWOOD and the songwriting community continues to flourish and we’re delighted to have BILL WITHERS share his unique perspective with us.”
