Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this compilation of favorite Broadway hits are fun for all -- those young enough to love Ariel or old enough to remember Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins.
What's the story?
From the best-selling Disney Karaoke Series comes DISNEY ON BROADWAY, a compilation featuring 8 beloved, Broadway and Disney classics from Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, The Lion King, and Tarzan. The 16-track disc (8 instrumental, 8 vocal) highlights fan favorites such as "Part of Your World," "Spoonful of Sugar," and "You'll Be in My Heart" from Tarzan. The music is the same show-stopping music from award-winning producers Alan Menken, Tim Rice, and Phil Collins that made the movie and Broadway versions so popular.
Is it any good?
The songs featured on Disney on Broadway will delight the Broadway diva in anyone. There's a vocal version so you can hear how the professionals sound, and an instrumental version to sing along to. "Part of Your World," will delight even the littlest mermaid, and "He Lives in You," a Broadway treat that isn't heard in the movie version of The Lion King, could entice anyone to line up for tickets on The Great White Way. Fans young and old will love feeling like a star when they sing along to this album.
