part of her world

Standard

Ok…I know…I know…I know…it’s been eons since I’ve posted. Not that you’re expecting anything though. One quick thing to share with you….

For my birthday, my thoughtful wife bought us both an annual membership to the EMP (Experience Music Project). There is really nothing that compares to this place. I’ll let you click on the link to find out all about it. Anyway, we get emails about upcoming events and concerts for members only. Well, last week the were advertising “The Music Behind the Magic”. Disney! Oh yeah! Well, there was no question, we had to go down there to see what was going on. Too many details, but the very long story very short is that we got to hear Jodi Benson (the voice of Ariel in ‘The Little Mermaid’) sing various Disney songs. From “A Spoonful of Sugar” to “When You Wish Upon A Star” and of course she closed with her signature “Part Of Your World”. We got to see original manuscript scores by Tim Rice (Aladdin, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid), Elton John (Lion King), Phil Collins (Tarzan), costumes from the Broadway production of “Beauty & The Beast”, Annette Funicello’s Mousketeer ears, and so much more. Here are some pictures of Jodi Benson singing and of course Erin with her. (By the way, Erin could sing circles around Miss Ariel.)
