Mandy Moore Covers Little Feat For ‘This Is Us’ Soundtrack
NBC drama This Is Us was one of the big hits of the 2016 – 2017 television season. Music plays a huge role on the show and many of the songs used during the first season will be issued as This Is Us (Music From The Series) on September 15. This Is Us stars Mandy Moore, among others, and she contributed a gorgeous rendition of a Little Feat classic to the soundtrack.
Moore plays Rebecca Pearson on the show, a mother with dreams of embarking on a career as a professional singer. Rebecca eventually does attempt to live out her dreams and in one of the episodes of the first season we see her sing Little Feat’s “Willin’.” Mandy recorded a studio version of the Lowell George-penned tune for inclusion on This Is Us (Music From The Series). The 20-track album also features songs from Wilco, Jim James, Paul Simon, Blind Faith, Stevie Wonder and others.
