Ruth B. performs live at Tyler Perry film premiere at TIFF

Singer-songwriter Ruth B. will perform live at the world premiere of the new Tyler Perry film, A Jazzman’s Blues, during this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) at the September 11 screening of the film.

The multi-platinum Canadian artist will sing Paper Airplanes at the performance, which will take place at Roy Thomson Hall and marks the live debut of the song.

Paper Airplanes, a modern pop tribute to the bitter-sweet blues played out in juke joints on the Bayou of the 20th century deep South, is featured in A Jazzman’s Blues and can be heard in the movie’s trailer as well. The track was produced by Oscar and Grammy winning producer D’Mile and Ruth B. herself.

This is a sough-after ticket at TIFF, made even more special with the Ruth B. live performance.
