If you know me, you know that I LOVE Disney more than most things in this life. If you don't know me, trust me when I say that Walt Disney is my hero and I adore the company he built. I state this because I want you to know that this post comes without malice toward Disney or its artists.
Part of Your World from Little Mermaid? Stop using it in auditions, festivals and competitions.
It's a beautiful song. And the recording Jodi Benson gave us is wonderful! Sing it! Sing it in the shower! In the car! As you're walking!
However, in competitions, festivals and audition rooms, it's overdone. Please stop using it in those scenarios. Here are five other Disney songs to consider instead. Click the titles for accompaniment tracks and sheet music links.
Sassy, upbeat, and a little bit spooky!
A lovely, vulnerable piece about friendship.

A powerful anthem, applicable to so many events and occasions.
A light hearted reminder to embrace joy, that's fun to sing!
Thanks for reading! - M 💕
