Two beautifully matched voices – Dolly’s warble! Sia’s vocal cracks! – soar in this remake of the classic track “Here I Am,” originally recorded for Dolly’s Coat of Many Colors album (back in 1971). The two collaborated on the song for the upcoming Dumplin’ soundtrack – which will feature will feature more classic Parton covers, as well as some new tunes written just for the movie.
Dumplin’, in case you haven’t heard, stars Drag Race star Ginger Minj in a career-defining role…. along a few other people (Jennifer Anniston, Dove Cameron, Sam Pancake…).
Willowdean (‘Dumplin’), the plus-size teenage daughter of a former beauty queen, signs up for her mom’s Miss Teen Bluebonnet pageant as a protest that escalates when other contestants follow her footsteps, revolutionizing the pageant and their small Texas town.
No Ginger isn’t Dumplin’ — but I’m sure she’ll steal every scene she’s in.
Anyway. I digress.
