A full-length, behind-the-scenes special about Katy Perry’s four-day Witness World Wide livestream will premiere via streaming subscription service YouTube Red on Oct. 4. The singer released a trailer Wednesday (Sept. 27).
YouTube Red special, Will You Be My Witness?, out October 4th. The feature-length project includes previously unseen content from the singer’s 96-hour June livestream promoting her fifth LP, Witness.
In one memorable scene, the recent VMAs host breaks down in tears while recounting how a desire to become her pre-fame self inspired her to cut and dye her hair. “I so badly wanted to be Kathryn Hudson that I didn’t want to look like Katy Perry anymore,” she says.
The special will feature behind-the-scenes footage from the livestream – from Perry conceptualizing the premise to her subsequent reflections after the event. The four-day YouTube stream – which featured 31 cameras charting the singer’s every move at her “Witness World Wide Headquarters” – wound up drawing over 50 million views in over 190 countries.
Celebrities like James Corden, Sia, Caitlyn Jenner, Gordon Ramsay, Anna Kendrick and America Ferrera dropped by the house to engage in conversations with Perry about politics, spirituality, gender and politics.
The film is called Will You Be My Witness? and gives a look at the creation of the project, as well as the aftermath of Perry being on-camera 24 hours a day, from June 8-12.
The preview shows highlights from the live stream, including appearances by celebrity guests including Anna Kendrick, Sia, RuPaul, Caitlyn Jenner and America Ferrera.
