Album Remarks & Appraisals:

A re-telling of the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in 1968. The film follows 22 individuals who are all at the hotel for different purposes but share the common thread of anticipating Kennedy's arrival at the primary election night party, which would change their lives forever. This historic night is set against the backdrop of the cultural issues gripping the country at the time, including racism, sexual inequality and class differences. Music includes Mary J. Blige and Aretha Franklin on the single (written by Bryan Adams), classic songs from the period and score by Mark Isham.

This thoughtful and inspiring soundtrack album not only features some of the current hits of the Kennedy era (Los Bravos' "Black is Black," the Moody Blues' "Tuesday Afternoon"), it also contains parts of Mark Isham's original score, bits of Robert F. Kennedy's heart-rousing speeches, and at least one certified hit original, the gorgeous (and Grammy-nominated) gospel song, "Never Gonna Break My Faith," by Aretha Franklin and Mary J. Blige. The Harlem Boys Choir guests on the track, upping the spine-tingle factor by half.
