Florist, featuring former Albany musicians Emily Sprague, Rick Spataro, and Jonnie Baker, in addition to Felix Walworth, were recently included in the new Beyoncé documentary ‘Homecoming’.
“Being a part of (the film) in this small way with a piece of music that i made in maybe my most broken state, reaching for feeling and the intention of empathy for the world, is truly the greatest honor of my short life,” said Sprague on Twitter.
The film — written, directed and executive-produced solely by Beyoncé, was released today on Netflix to coincide with her new album by the same name. Florist’s song is between “Single Ladies” and “Love On Top” around the 2:06:00 mark and also includes a Maya Angelou spoken word recording.
Patrick’s work has been published internationally, including on the front pages of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. After a 10 year career in journalism and marketing, he is now pursuing a Masters in Public Administration. He launched Albany Proper in 2012.
