Disney, me and the future?

>> Wednesday, October 29, 2008

As is noted in the Profile part of my little blog, I happen to be a singer/songwriter/pianist. What you may not know is that I used to be an actor as well. It's what I always wanted to be growing up, it's what I went to school for, it's what I used to spend my free time doing, and I even worked a little bit and got some paying jobs.

When I was around 22, 23 years old I realized that I just didn't have the same passion for it anymore. My interest had now fallen to singing and songwriting, so I had a little bit of a "dream change" and decided to go after that instead. Well in the past year and a bit I have started missing acting a lot. I miss playing a character and really delving into that character's life and figuring out what makes them tick and then translating that into a performance.

I'll jump ahead to only a couple of weeks ago when I saw the Disney movie "Enchanted" (if you haven't seen it you really should - it's a really wonderful, funny, family film). One of the songs from the movie stuck in my head and I kept singing it over and over, which then makes me think of all the other Disney songs I've always loved. So one night I'm bopping around the house doing some cleaning and I'm singing some Disney songs and I think "wait a minute - maybe I could do that! Then I could sing and act and make use of all the crazy voices I do that make Chris laugh hysterically all the time!" By that of course, I mean being a voice actor. Back when I was acting, I knew some voice actors and never really understood why they liked it so much and why they didn't want to be in front of the camera. Now it seems to be all I think about - that it may just be the perfect job for me.

Anyhoo - I've started recording some stuff using my "Disney princess voice" (which is not my usual singing voice - in real life I don't sound quite as "perky"). It's basically me singing the parts in some well known Disney songs. I've posted them on youtube but decided to be brave and post them on here as well to see what people I actually know think about them. (They're posted on the sidebar) Feel free to comment, but keep in mind that these are pretty rough cuts - I just want to start experimenting and see what I can and cannot do. So enjoy! (hopefully)

Suzanne, those songs are great! It sounded like they actually belonged in the movies!
