Stay tuned to the @PopMatters Twitter
tomorrow at 4.00 pm EST as we do a live Twitter session about James Brown and the new biopic celebrating his career, Get on Up
. We will be handing out prizes, including $100 iTunes cards.
PopMatters has teamed up with Universal Pictures to celebrate their upcoming release Get on Up. Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.
James Brown empowered a generation of activists with his anthem “Say It Loud”. We’re tasking fans to salute the Godfather of Soul and his lasting impact on social culture and popular music by sharing your thoughts about his music and legacy using #SayItLoud on Twitter.
