Pharrell Williams to perform free concert in Toronto

You'll be happy to note that Pharrell Williams will be performing a free concert next month in Toronto. The Grammy Award-winning artist will be in town for a sneak preview of Theodore Melfi's upcoming film Hidden Figures, which stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monåe.

Hidden Figures tells the story of three African-American women working at NASA who helped launch astronaut John Glenn into space. Select TIFF members will get to see a preview of the movie on September 10 during the festival.

Afterwards, Williams will perform on Festival Street (also known as King Street), at the intersection of King and John. There will be a TIFF members-only section at the front, but the general public will be able to see the whole show too.
