This year's D23 Expo featured an appearance by Paige O'Hara, Lea Salonga, Anika Noni Rose and Jodi Benson, better known as the voices of Belle, Mulan/Jasmine, Tiana, and Ariel. First the ladies tried to out-warble each other while singing, "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes," but let's just move on to what you really want to see: The Disney songs you grew up with coming out of a human, not an animated princess.
We would not have been surprised if Jodi Benson/Ariel whipped out a fork and started brushing her hair.
Anika Noni Rose is pretty delightful, but since we never sang this song while brushing our Tiana doll's hair and making her kiss Ken we're not as emotionally invested in this song.
Lea Salonga does the least cheesy rendition of a Disney song ever.
Jodi Benson sounds much different than she did 20 years ago, but to her credit, she doesn't seem to be suffering from the delusion that she is Belle.
