Self-penned Ballad is Featured on The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond Which Hit Stores Tuesday, March 20
Nashville, Tenn. – Thursday night, the stage at NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno looked like a scene from The Hunger Games as sibling duo The Secret Sisters performed their captivating self-penned ballad, "Tomorrow Will Be Kinder," that is featured on the film's soundtrack, The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond. Check out the full performance clip below (performance starts at approximately 4 minute mark ... the video starts at the 38.53 minute mark and goes backwards so don't let that confuse you! LOL)
Sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers wrote "Tomorrow Will Be Kinder" while on tour in Australia, and after T Bone Burnett, executive producer of The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond, heard it recorded he immediately knew it was a perfect fit for the soundtrack.
“We were in Australia, and there, Lydia sat down and wrote the song. Even though it came from thinking about a really dark circumstance, it is about looking forward to better days. In that sense, it really ties into the characters’ experience in The Hunger Games,” Laura says.
