The Launch Concert Series

Year: 2019
Genre: Entertainment

Following 6 highly anticipated episodes of CTV’s landmark series THE LAUNCH, the chosen artists from each episode (6 in total) will have been swept away into the whirlwind marketing, PR and music production machine of CTV and Big Machine Records. Their singles will be all over the radio and Canada will know their faces well.

We capture their excitement and talent as they perform two songs they used to audition for Scott Borchetta and other celebrity judges – an original song, and a cover hit – and their new single, performed for the first time ever as “chosen Artist” in front of an audience! Companion edits give us a glimpse into the home lives of the chosen artists, and feature outtakes from The Launch that never made it to air. We also get a peek into the PR machine that has made these individuals famous literally overnight.
