Over inspirational strings, the “Girl on Fire” belts out a moving ode to resilience. “I’m just trying to hold onto a dream,” she sings. “Out here lost and nothing’s what it seems / I’m just trying to find where I belong / This must be the dark before the dawn.”
Queen of Katwe, the story of Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi, stars David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong’o, and Madina Nalwanga, and arrives in theaters Sept. 23.
