Platinum-Selling artist Drake will be hitting the silver screen this spring with what's being billed as as "special one-night concert event"! "Drake's Homecoming: The Lost Footage" will hit select Canadian Cineplex Entertainment/Landmark Movie Theaters Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 7:30pm. The showing is being presented by Front Row Centre Events, SpectiCast, Serious Ent., AMG, Rap-A-Lot Records & Young Empire Music Group.
Previously believed lost and destroyed, the footage for "DRAKE'S HOMECOMING: THE LOST FOOTAGE" was shot prior to Drake signing with Little Wayne's Young Money (Cash Money/Universal) imprint during a live, sold-out concert at Toronto's Sound Academy in 2009. After its recent rediscovery, additional production and footage was added to the concert film including interviews with Rap-a-Lot Records CEO James Princeand his son Jas Prince, who is credited with the discovery of Drake and bringing him to the attention of Little Wayne. The soundtrack includes the international smash hits, "Best I Ever Had" and "Successful."
Jas Prince, CEO of Young Empire Music Group said, "When I first listened to Drake I had no idea he was on a hit show, I just fell in love with his sound and talent – it was unique and like nothing I had ever heard before. I told him during our first conversation I would make him a star. This film documents the beginning of that journey."
Tickets for "DRAKE'S HOMECOMING: THE LOST FOOTAGE," are available now at participating Cineplex theatre box offices and online at Cineplex.com/Events.
