ABC to Air Beyoncé Presents: Making The Gift

-

Beyoncé is set to take viewers on a journey through Africa with the hour-long documentary special, Beyoncé Presents: Making The Gift, set to air Monday, Sept. 16 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. This intimate behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album, The Lion King: The Gift, features candid footage and interviews detailing the hard work and passion that went into her love letter to Africa.

As previously announced, The Lion King: The Gift, a musical ode to Disney’s The Lion King from Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records, was released on July 19, 2019, in conjunction with Walt Disney Pictures’ feature film and remake of the classic animated film of the same name.

The Beyoncé-executive-produced album is a masterful recording, with a robust soundscape bringing together some of the most important African artists of the day with well-known American talent to both re-interpret the powerful story and themes of the iconic film and bring the authentic sounds of Africa to a global audience.

Viewers will be taken through the creative process as Beyoncé carefully curates the album, creating new music and collaborating with talented artists and producers, while seeking inspiration from deeply rooted African influences. This creativity is informed by her travels throughout the continent, from the tranquility of the pyramids of Egypt to the bustling and joyous atmospheres of Nigeria and South Africa. The narrative, steeped in love and appreciation, highlights the beauty of the people and the vibrant sounds of a pulsating continent.

Beyoncé Presents: Making The Gift was written, directed and produced by Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. Co-director is her long-time collaborator Ed Burke. Executive producers are Steve Pamon and Erinn Williams.
