Joshua Bell, on participating on an Academy Award-nominated song with Scarlett Johansson. "Before My Time," written by J. Ralph from the movie Chasing Ice. Nominated for Best Original Song.
"I participated in a song that's been nominated for best song. I did a duet with Scarlett Johansson, singing quite beautifully, I thought. I had no idea she was a singer."
"They asked me to participate in this song for a movie called chasing ice...And the song, written by Josh Ralph, a friend of mine in New York...he got nominated for best song for the Academy Awards. So it'll be fun to watch and see...But it's not something that I'd be taking home the Oscar for, unfortunately."
"I love doing movie work. There's often some...just great stuff. I think music in movies can be so powerful."
