While working on the film, Pion and Blum sought a music track that would effectively unite the interweaving stories featured in the film, including a few of the Shutterbugs, a teacher, and a scientist whose groundbreaking work is supported by the Foundation. The Bird & The Bee’s “Spark,” paired with the luminous voice of Gracie Abrams, perfectly carries through the message of the Foundation’s impact on the lives of children through creativity and research funding. Written by Inara George and Greg Kurstin, the music production was handled by composer/producer Rob Cairns, who has worked with Riverstreet on numerous projects. The seven-minute film first premiered at a Pablove Foundation fundraiser and helped raise over $550,000 in an hour. It was the pivotal moment that sparked the expansion of the campaign though song. “People wanted to know where they could find this incredible song,” recalls Pion. “We all thought, what if everyone who worked on the track backed a single release to add further fundraising support for Pablove Foundation? The answer was a resounding and unequivocal yes.”
