Five-time GRAMMY nominee Hunter Hayes performed for the first time at the storied 2017 Sundance Film Festival as part of A Celebration of Music and Film, an event hosted annually by the Sundance Institute Film Music Program as the centerpiece of its music programming at the Festival. Centered on the theme “There is a Crack In Everything / That’s How the Light Gets In,” based on lyrics by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend Leonard Cohen, this year’s special edition event featured music and readings celebrating free speech, diverse voices and the power of art to unite us and propel us forward. Hayes performed both his powerful GRAMMY-nominated hit “Invisible” and celebratory new single, “Yesterday’s Song.”
Hunter Hayes joined a diverse lineup of artists and speakers including Common, Jim James, Andra Day, Jenny Slate, Nick Offerman, Ava DuVernay and Gael Garcia Bernal. The event was also live-streamed in 360-degree virtual reality from Festival Base Camp presented by Canada Goose to Festival Village presented by Acura for the first time ever.
