The incomparable Alan Menken was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last Wednesday. Being the devoted Disney/Menken fan that I am, I *had* to attend of course!
Mr. Menken was kind enough to sign my sheet music from the TANGLED duet I See the Light, which I will be framing :o) Huge thanks to John Kahrs and the directors for letting me animate Rapunzel singing part of this song - my life is complete. Here's a video of the ceremony (including a Disney Legend guest speaker, Richard Sherman):
Also, a moment I have long awaited: the TANGLED Soundtrack is now available for download at Amazon for only $3.99! The score is gorgeous, and the songs are classic Menken. The soundtrack even includes some deleted and extended bits! So, buy it now, memorize it this week, and sing-a-long in the theater on November 24th. That's my plan.
And for a little more Menken, here's a link to a great interview:
