Is it any good?
This is a fun CD that lets kids sing along with many of their favorite stars. The HSM tracks feature Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens. Fans can sing along with the real Troy and Gabriella in "Start of Something New" or rock out the show like Hannah Montana herself in "Best of Both Worlds" or "Let's Get Crazy" from season three. It's just one more way for fans to get a taste of their favorite stars -- and actually be the star as they sing along.
