Soul movie soundtrack: Is Soul about soul music? Does Jamie Foxx sing? | Films | Entertainment


Jazz showed up nearer to the 1900s, and many versions of jazz have come from it, while other genres also found their basis here.

As for soul, which comes from jazz, R&B and gospel, this grew from the 1950s with singers such as James Brown, known as the Godfather of Soul, and Ray Charles, who combined various aforementioned genres to pioneer soul music.

The Pixar movie Soul focuses on a jazz musician, Joe Gardner (voiced by Jamie Foxx) who is about to get the gig of a lifetime before he ‘dies’, and his soul is sent to the afterlife.

Joe then begins his quest to return to Earth, even becoming involved with a soul who needs to find her spark (voiced by Tina Fey.)
