Devotion, an aerial war epic based on the bestselling book of the same name, tells the inspirational true story of two elite US Navy fighter pilots who helped turn the tide in the most brutal battle in the Korean War: Jesse Brown, the first Black aviator in Navy history and his fellow fighter pilot and friend, Tom Hudner. Their heroic sacrifices and enduring friendship would ultimately make them the Navy’s most celebrated wingmen.

Chanda Dancy started composing orchestral works at the age of 12. She has been described as a “phenomenal composer” and “quickly gaining recognition as a foremost black American contemporary composer.” Her works are described as “emotionally penetrating” and “rich”.

An alumnus of the USC Film Scoring Program, and the Sundance Composers Lab, Chanda is both an accomplished film and television composer with over 18 years of experience and an emerging classical concert composer. Arts Boston named her one of “10 Contemporary Black Composers You Should Know”. She is known for her work on the Sundance award-winning documentary Aftershock (Disney/Onyx Collective), the hit Netflix TV Original The Defeated starring Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights), and the upcoming Korean War era epic Devotion starring Jonathan Majors (Da 5 Bloods, Loki) and Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick), which hits theaters Thanksgiving weekend 2022.

Joe Jonas is an international pop icon, songwriter, and actor. Joe is the frontman of the multiplatinum group DNCE with Jack Lawless on drums and JinJoo on guitar. DNCE initially shook up popular music and culture with the release of their RIAA quintuple-platinum-certified single “Cake By The Ocean” back in 2016. The song permeated the pop culture at large, becoming an unstoppable hit, crashing the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and emerging as “one of the most-played songs of the year at Top 40 radio.” They also won “Best New Artist at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. The band has tallied 5 billion global streams and 3.5 million global album equivalents. 2022 marked their momentous return as they teamed up with Kygo for the unshakable and undeniable anthem “Dancing Feet.” With an inimitable and intoxicating hybrid of rock, pop, dance, and funk like no other, DNCE will make you move more than ever now.

The Grammy-nominated band made an explosive return in 2019 with the surprise release of their critically acclaimed and widely successful single “Sucker” following a six-year hiatus and have garnered a bevy of awards and accolades, and released an Amazon Original film documenting the brothers’ rise and return to music since. On the acting front, Joe was recently seen as a guest star in HBO’s critically acclaimed comedy Righteous Gemstones. He is set to make his feature film debut as one of the stars of the highly anticipated Korean war movie Devotion, out November 23rd, for which he also co-wrote an original song titled “Not Alone” with Ryan Tedder and Harv, and performed alongside Khalid for the film.
