20th Century Fox reveals the genius behind NASA’s space race with some music from The Hit House.

When John Glenn launched into orbit on February 20, 1962 the world did not know the 3 brilliant African-American women, Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan & Mary Jackson who were the brains behind the success. 20th Century Fox helped enlighten us today & The Hit House is proud to have contributed the song, “Sam Osa Drums,” from our Funny Bone Ate album, to the Hidden Figures trailer from 0:21-0:30.

Based upon the eponymous book by Margot Lee Shetterly & directed by Theodore Melfi, Hidden Figures stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, Glen Powell & Kimberly Quinn. This is the real-life tale of 3 ladies who helped collective society overcome incredible odds to accomplish a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race & galvanized the world.

Nominated for & winning numerous awards Hidden Figures is a true triumph over adversity & a testament to the previously unsung heroines Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan & Mary Jackson.
