LOS ANGELES, June 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)
Maisy Kay, the 18-year-old music prodigy is fresh off her triumphant debut with feature film “Wonders of the Sea 3D” where her heartfelt title song was premiered during the Cannes Film Festival.

“I’ve been a supporter of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for some time and it is important for me to have this amazing opportunity to work with both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jean-Michel Cousteau in order to help raise awareness about the urgent need to protect our oceans,” said Maisy Kay. “After listening to the beautiful original score of the film composed by Christophe Jacquelin, I was inspired to compose a song that would help convey the important message of the movie.”

“The soundtrack has an important part in the success of a movie and we were already fortunate to have such beautiful music,” Director Jean-Michel Cousteau said. “When I heard Maisy’s song, I immediately knew it would be a great title song for the film. Maisy Kay is one of the most talented young women I have ever worked with, and her potential seems boundless.”

Maisy Kay will perform this song again following the film’s screening at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, New York on June 21. The audience will consist of international luminaries, world and United Nations leadership and Hollywood celebrities.

“Wonders of the Sea 3D” is directed by the legendary oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau and Jean-Jacques Mantello and is produced by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Francois Mantello. The film is slated for a staggered release worldwide starting in 2017.
