Princess Jasmin & Alladin reunites after 2 decades and more. Miss Lea Salonga and Brad Kane.
Maria Lea Carmen Imutan Salonga,(Jasmin’s singing voice)is a Filipina singer and actress best known for her roles in musical theatre, for supplying the singing voices of two Disney Princesses, and as a recording artist and television performer.
Bradley Caleb Kane (Alladins singing voice) is an American singer, actor, producer and writer.
Lea and Brad, the singing voices of Jasmine and Aladdin, perform ‘A Whole New World’ together for the first time in 23 years, accompanied by the great composer Alan Menken.
Although it’s been more than 20 years since Aladdin hit theaters, the movie is still a fan favorite. Between the music, the animation, and the incredible vocal talents, it was an instant classic.”A Whole New World” is a song from Disney’s 1992 animated feature film Aladdin, with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice.
A duet originally recorded by singers Brad Kane and Lea Salonga in their respective roles as the singing voices of the main characters Aladdin and Jasmine, the ballad serves as both the film’s love and theme song. Lyrically, “A Whole New World” describes Aladdin showing the confined princess a life of freedom and the pair’s acknowledgment of their love for each other while riding on a magic carpet.
The song garnered an Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 65th Academy Awards. “A Whole New World” also won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year at the 36th Annual Grammy Awards, the first and so far only Disney song to win in the category.
As on Lea’s experience she said that this is every little girl’s fantasy come true.
Now, almost 23 years later, the cast and crew have reunited on Good Morning America, and Lea and Brad, accompanied by iconic composer Alan Menken, who did the film’s music, performed their unforgettable duet once more.
It’s like nothing’s changed, the song is still brimming with hope, breathless romance, and the spirit of young love, the same things that made it appeal to millions of viewers of all ages more than two decades ago.
