America's Musical Journey
Premiering February 16 at the Omni Theater

America's Musical Journey celebrates the unique diversity of cultures and creative risk-taking that characterize America, as told through the story of its music.  The film follows Grammy Award®-nominated singer and songwriter Aloe Blacc as he traces the roots of America’s music and follows the footsteps of Louis Armstrong through the colorful locales and cultures where America’s music was born. Visiting cities such as New Orleans, Chicago, New York City, Nashville, Memphis, Miami and more, audiences will experience uniquely American adventures such as paddle-wheel boating up the Mississippi Delta, flash mob dancing in Chicago and skydiving with Elvis impersonators in scenes shot exclusively for the giant screen. As audiences join Blacc on a joyful, tune-filled tour of the nation’s most iconic music cities, they’ll discover the unique collision of cultures that gave birth to America’s diverse musical heritage. In these cities every chord, every riff, every bang of a drum tells a story, culminating in a unique blend of sound, culture and innovation unlike anywhere else in the world.  

America's Musical Journey is a MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and presented by Expedia.
