Canadian singer/songwriter and breakout pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen first burst onto the music scene with her Top Ten U.S. debut album Kiss and its global smash hit “Call Me Maybe.” In 2012, she took home the American Music Award for Best New Artist and received two 2012 Grammy Award nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Now, Ms. Jepsen is set to dazzle music fans around the world once again with her stunning new rendition of “Part of Your World,” the beloved Disney ballad about yearning for a world just beyond reach.
“Part of Your World” was written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman and originally recorded for the movie by American actress and singer Jodi Benson, who gave voice to Disney’s favorite underwater princess, Ariel. The song is a Broadway-style ballad in which young heroine Ariel expresses her desire to be a part of the human world.
For me i listened to it and automatically knew the song which is good! I always want to be able to feel the classic still there just hinted at in the new version. I think i will always prefer Jodi Benson’s version and i don’t know if anything can change that.Her voice to me will always be the best for that song. That being said i think Carly did an ok job she really captured the emotion of Ariel which is great. The only critique i have is i felt like she cut some notes short and was a little breathy. Overall it was enjoyable and I’m sure her fans will love it! Check it out for yourself and download it on ITunes! Let me know what you think of it!
