Oscar and multi-Grammy Award-winning recording artist, songwriter and composer Jon Batiste, Grammy Award-winning a cappella group Pentatonix, and Grammy winning and Oscar nominated songwriter Diane Warren have collaborated to deliver the single “Sweet (Single Edit)” from Di-Namic Records/BMG with music and lyrics by Diane Warren.
The release of the single follows the recent announcement that Warren has been selected to receive an Honorary Oscar. She is the first songwriter to receive an Honorary Oscar and it will be presented at Academy’s 13th Governors Awards in November 2022.
Sweet’ is like a jolt of positivity right when we need it the most. And there is no one who exudes more positivity and joy than the amazing Jon Batiste. To have both Jon and the greatest a cappella group in the world, Pentatonix on my song is a dream come true. Just in time to make everyone’s Summer a little SWEETer.
Jon Batiste continues:
Life is full of ups and downs. Music is a gift that helps put it all in perspective. This song will find those who need it most.
Kevin Olusola of Pentatonix concludes:
We were so honored to collaborate with such musical titans as Jon Batiste and Diane Warren. They’ve brought the world so much love and joy in their music. We hope the people feel like dancin’ and prancin’ when they listen to “Sweet”!
Last summer, Warren released Diane Warren: The Cave Sessions Vol. 1 from Di-Namic Records/BMG, which featured an all-star cast of featured guest performances such as Carlos Santana, Rita Ora, Maren Morris, John Legend and Jimmie Allen to name a few.
