Stop What You're Doing and Fall in Love With This Epic Medley of Disney Songs
By John Boone
Full disclosure: Hercules features our favorite songs of any Disney songs. “Zero to Hero”? That’s a jam. “A Star Is Born,” “I Won’t Say I’m in Love,” all awesome. Maybe you prefer The Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast, but the Hercules soundtrack got us like:
Which is probably why we love this medley by the cast of the Aladdin show on Broadway — it’s heavy on the Herc. But it’s got something for the other Disney musical fans among us too. Everyone wins!
The songs are, in order: “Go the Distance” from Hercules, “Kiss the Girl” from The Little Mermaid, “Gaston” from Beauty and the Beast, and “Zero to Hero,” from Hercules. And the gentlemen performing the number are Adam Jacobs and James Monroe Iglehart, accompanied by the legendary Alan Menken.
Killer voices. Get these guys on Broadway. (Already done!)
