What's the story?
"THE GLOW" is a Disney princess-inspired song that encourages young girls to be the light and the spark behind their own dreams. Sung by British teenager Shannon Saunders, who won the UK Camp Rock 2: Final Jam vocal contest, "The Glow" is featured on the Disney compilation, Disney Princess: Fairy Tale Songs.
Is it any good?
Disney princesses, even in all their doe-eyed, tiny-waisted fantasy world, still teach girls to be kind, courageous, and strong. "The Glow" tells little princesses that they are the light that makes their own dreams come true: "Feel your strength, you can face the world, believe every day, everything is possible." The message is uplifting and positive, and Saunders' pure vocals make the song stand out.
