It has been 23 years since Disney's classic animated musical Aladdin hit our screens. While it is most memorable for Robin Williams' amazing turn as the genie, he classic adaptation of Middle Eastern folklore gave us at least one iconic song that remains popular today -- 'A Whole New World'. One might say that it was the 'Let It Go' of its day.
And now, thanks to Good Morning America, who reunited the cast of this great film on October 9. We are once again treated to a performance of 'A Whole New World' sung by the people who originally took on the roles.
It was a great trip down memory lane, as Brad Kane, who provided the singing voice for Aladdin, sang the duet with Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, who, in turn, provided the singing voice for Jasmine. Eight-time Academy Award winner Allen Menken, who composed the song, accompanied them in the piano. Fellow cast members Linda Larkin, Scott Weinger and Jonathan Freeman, who provided the speaking voice for Jasmine, Aladdin and Jafar, respectively, were also in attendance.
Watch the full performance below:
Lea Salonga has remained active in Broadway over the years, and will be seen next on stage in the musical Allegiance, she is also a judge in the Philippine version of The Voice. Brad Kane, meanwhile, has moved behind the scenes as a writer-producer for TV series like Fringe and Black Sails.
