The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney movie and the brand new Diamond Edition has so many fantastic bonus features. You probably all know that Jodi Benson is the voice of Ariel and I just love to see her talk and sing. It’s like a real life Ariel!
Jodi recently teamed up with Broadway Inspirational Voices (BIV) to help save music at Mosaic Preparatory Academy, a PreK-6 public elementary school located in the heart of East Harlem in New York City. Jodi and BIV are both supporters of music in school and recognize the importance of the arts in a well rounded curriculum. While the kids signed, Jodi sang “Part of Your World.” This is a truly awesome video. Check it out:
Gives me chills and a little lump in my throat. So fantastic. Way to go Jodi!
