One Jump Ahead - Michelle Nicastro


I thought it would be fun if this week's cover tunes all had to do with Disney orphans. Disney has a long list of orphans because they tend to make good heroes. They are determined because they've had a long life and they are always trying to prove themselves. They are not all like this, but you'll find out more about that in the coming days.

Aladdin is the perfect example of a Disney orphan. He leads the pack as one of the best orphans ever to be animated in a Disney film. And it just happens to be the birthday of the singing voice of Aladdin! BRAD KANE turns thirty-five today and to celebrate I am posting a cover of his feature song from Aladdin, One Jump Ahead.

Brad Kane started acting when he was three years old. By eight and a half he was sing on a Broadway production of Evita. He has been in many commercials and has been a guest star on many TV shows, but his most well-know role has to be Aladdin, which he provided the singing voice. Kane also sang as Aladdin in The Return of Jafar and Aladdin and the King of Thieves.

This cover is song with gusto by Broadway singer MICHELLE NICASTRO.

Wow. This cover is just great! Not only is her voice awesome, but also the song sounds like it was performed for a stage musical.

Thanks for this :)
