This starts out as an interesting Disney a capella tribute, then it immediately becomes clear they’re doing *men* of Disney, which is a much over-looked category, and then BAM! Pitch-Slapped by the sassiest Ariel ever. Aw yiss.
I might be slightly too obsessed with this.
I must reblog this every time, and I think the Ariel looks and acts like Dan Dan :)
I didn’t even get through “Circle of Life” before reblogging.
Ok ok, Ariel won me over
I’ve probably reblogged this 300 times already, but I’ll do it 300 more.
Sharks get a bad rap for being dangerous predators that are constantly devouring humans, but there is a whole world of things out there that will kill before a shark does. Here are just a few of those things.

And the words - always the Andrews hallmark - filled with a very real sense of having been discovered in the actual moment of performance. In that, she was properly taught: ‘You free the singing voice, you bring it forward through the words. Even when you might be having trouble sustaining the line, if you hold on to a word - consonant first, and then a truthful vowel - it’s amazing how the voice will hold up for you.’ And it’s that - the clear enunciation, the open, well lubricated vowels - which gives her voice its perennial freshness. That and the ability to tell a story, to make you - the listener, believe in a lyric. Few could take ‘Edelweiss’ and find some depth in it beyond the fragrant, sentimental little folk song which is still (for some) the stuff of which allergies are made. ‘Honestly, I think it’s a classic little song. It just sort of sits there in the palm of your hand. Ian (Fraser) has given me an impressionistic sound. Everything about it is so evocative. Its strength - and depth - lies in its simplicity, and it becomes a very strong statement about anybody’s homeland.’ Listen to the recording and hear what she manages to convey in the one word - homeland. One suspects that it strikes a deeper chord with her than we know.” - Edward Seckerson, from the Broadway The Music of Richard Rodgers Album
