The motion picture soundtrack for the movie The Visit is adeptly crafted and captures the mood of the movie through dramatic musical elements. The use of several musical genres, including gospel, jazz, R&B, vocals, and instrumentals, lend credibility to each scene with imagery carefully incorporated to deliver the right sensibility. Wallace Rooney's performance of "Little Prince" is a standout as is Niki Harris' on "Eye Is on the Sparrow." Accompanied by her father, the great Gene Harris, her vocals delivers the emotional impact of their respective scene sequences. The music supervision is good and should inspire those interested in the use of various musical genres as additional characters to resolve story structure, development, and resolutions.
