Juanes Performs “Juntos” for Disney’s “McFarland, USA”

Juanes is making movie music…

Disney’s upcoming feel-good movie, McFarland, USA, will feature a new song performed by the 42-year-old Colombian musician in its end credits.


Juanes wrote “Juntos” specifically for the film, which is directed by Niki Caro and stars Kevin Costner and Maria Bello.

The film — which will be out February next year — tells the true story of a Latino high school cross country team from McFarland, Calif. that’s coached through several social issues in the 1980s to win a major championship. The film stars Costner as the coach, as well as Carlos Pratts.

The video for “Juntos,” also directed by Caro, was shot on location in McFarland.

“Watching the film left me inspired about the power of teamwork, tenacity and faith, and I’m honored to now be part of the ‘McFarland, USA’ team,” said Juanes in a statement.

Juanes’ current album, Loco de Amor, is nominated for a Grammy in the Best Latin Pop Album category. It also picked up the award for Best Pop/Rock Album at the Latin Grammys last month.
