Serving as the film’s composer and executive music producer is Tony® and Grammy® award-winner Alex Lacamoire (The Greatest Showman), who has collaborated with Lin-Manuel Miranda on various projects since their initial partnership on Broadway’s In The Heights.

The soundtrack’s first single, “Keep The Beat ” arrived last week alongside a clip where Vivo (voiced by Lin-Manuel Miranda), a musically gifted kinkajou (aka a rainforest “honey bear”) embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to deliver a song to his cherished owner’s long-lost love, with the help of Gabi (voiced by Ynairaly Simo) – an energetic tween who bounces to the beat of her own offbeat drum. Along the way, the pair have been forced to take a shortcut through the Florida Everglades – but nothing can stop this dynamic duo, not even ‘gators! Watch the clip HERE.
Stay tuned for more amazing music to come from the Vivo (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack).
