On December 01, the great film composer James Newton Howard will be on stage in Frankfurt's Jahrhunderthalle with a choir and large orchestra to present the highlights of his work to date live. This is guaranteed to be a very special evening - for all visitors, but for one in particular. Because as we had reported to you HERE, James Newton Howard was looking for a singer for his concert, who may sing the number 1 hit "The Hanging Tree" from "The Tribute of Panem - Mockingjay Part 1" in the Jahrhunderthalle.
