 the widely-anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures film. "August Rush - Music
 From The Motion Picture" is available online and in stores now.
     "August Rush - Music From The Motion Picture" is a showcase of sounds
 from the music-driven drama starring Freddie Highmore, Keri Russell, and
 Jonathan Rhys Meyers with Terrence Howard and Robin Williams. The
 soundtrack album includes original tracks by John Legend ("Someday"), John

 Improv," "Ritual Dance"); covers by Chris Botti & Paula Cole (Billie
 Holiday's "God Bless The Child"), Leon Thomas III (Ritchie Valens' "La

     "August Rush," in theaters November 21, tells the story of a
 charismatic young Irish guitarist (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and a sheltered
 young cellist (Keri Russell) who have a chance encounter one magical night
 above New York's Washington Square but are torn apart, leaving in their
 wake an infant, August, orphaned by circumstance. Now performing on the
 streets of New York and cared for by a mysterious stranger (Robin
 Williams), August (Freddie Highmore) uses his remarkable musical talent to
 seek the parents from whom he was separated at birth. The film, which also
 stars Terrence Howard, is directed by Kirsten Sheridan and produced by
 Richard Barton Lewis from a screenplay by Nick Castle and James V. Hart,
