“As a father, I jumped at the chance to be involved with a holiday film that’s both inspirational and inclusive,” says Usher. “A film with a great message where my kids can see themselves reflected on the screen. Working with Kiana was a really great experience and I’m excited for people to hear this song.”
“I am so excited to be a part of ‘This Day’ with Usher and the Jingle Jangle family,” says Kiana. “I feel honored to have played a small role in a soon to be classic Christmas story. Working with Usher was like my own Christmas miracle! David E. Talbert and Lyn Sisson-Talbert managed to help us reconnect to our Christmas joy and make us believe in magic again in a time of such uncertainty.”
‘Jungle Jangle: A Christmas Journey’ was directed by David E. Talent. “The beautiful thing about music is that it’s the universal language,” says writer-director David E. Talbert. “It’s what brings us together and lowers the walls between us. My hope is that ‘This Day’ will become an inspiring anthem for future generations. Thank you Usher and Kiana for crushing it.”
