Alicia was inspired to write “Back To Life” after seeing the movie, which tells the true story of Phiona Mutesi. Phiona rose from the streets of rural Uganda to become an international chess champion. Alicia says the song is about pushing past that little voice of doubt in our heads so we can, instead, electrify the world.

“Queen of Katwe” is directed by Academy Award®-nominated director Mira Nair and stars Oscar® winner and Tony® nominee Lupita Nyong’o, Golden Globe® nominee David Oyelowo, and newcomer Madina Nalwanga.

Alicia wrote “Back To Life” with Illangelo and Billy Walsh. The song appears in the film and on the motion picture soundtrack. “Queen of Katwe” opens in limited release September 23 and expands wide September 30, 2016.
