Special Event: Ronald McDonald House Charity Event

Returning to its Austin roots, Angels Sing will celebrate its theatrical release with a red carpet benefit screening at Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane on November 3, 2013 with a Texas-sized lineup of musicians.   Ronald McDonald House Charities, in collaboration with Cowgirl Up Entertainment and LionsGate, present a benefit screening  with film talent and musicians walking the carpet to include: Willie Nelson, Bruce Robison, Ray Benson, Joel Guzman & Sarah Fox, Marcia Ball, Sara Hickman, Ms. Lavelle White, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, The Trishas, Joe Morales, and Sarah Smith.

Angels Sing will host an after-party celebration at the Rattle Inn following the screening where guests will enjoy BBQ by The Salt Lick, Margaritas by Patron, and music by Bruce Robinson, Marcia Ball, The Trishas and other cast members from the film.

The film, based on the novel “When Angels Sing” by Turk Pipkin, opens across the country and here locally at the Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane on November 1, 2013. Starring Harry Connick Jr, Willie Nelson, and Connie Britton, as well as cameos and performances by many Austin musicians, it’s a holiday film you won’t want to miss!

Harry Connick, Jr. stars as Michael Walker, who, as a child, wished every day was Christmas. That is, until a tragic accident crushed his holiday spirit. Thirty years later, Michael still can’t muster any joy for Christmas, despite encouragement from his playful wife (Connie Britton) and well intentioned parents (Kris Kristofferson and Fionnula Flanagan). But when his young son (Chandler Canterbury) faces a tragedy, Michael needs to make amends with his past. A mysterious man named Nick (Willie Nelson) gives Michael a gift that instills in him the courage to find the Christmas joy that he lost.
Angels Sing is a comedic, heartfelt fable about the importance of family ties, the power of forgiveness and the undeniable magic of Christmas. Rounding out the cast are Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Eloise DeJoria, Bruce Robison, Sara Hickman and Turk Pipkin.
