    I purchased this CD and I've enjoyed it very much.
    The songs are mostly arranged in various Broadway musical styles as most of the vocalists are from that genre.

    Disney Music fans will recognize two of Disney's Beauty and the Beast A new Musical original cast, Susan Egan (Belle) and Gary Beach (Lumiere).

    The 15 tracks with the featured artists are:

    The Age of Not Believing - Christine Ebersole
    Ten Feet Off the Ground - Kate Levering & David Hibbard
    That Darn Cat - Michelle Pawk
    Chin Up - Susan Egan
    Are We Dancing? - Tami Tappan & David Burnham
    Hushabye Mountain - Janine LaManna
    For Now For Always - Rebecca Luker
    Shermanized Word Medley - Jason Graae
    Where Did The Good Times Go? - Emily Skinner
    Busker Alley - Gary Beach & Chorus
    Feed The Birds - Liz Callaway
    She Has a Way - Brent Barrett
    A Rock and Roll Love Story - Kristen Bell & Ryan Driscoll
    River Song - Lawrence Clayton
    Your Heart Will Lead You Home - Natalie Toro

    If you enjoy great music sung by great artists than IMHO this is great collection of tunes!

    I was surprised to see this CD for sale in the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort last weekend! It can also be ordered online direct from www.fynsworthalley.com.

    If there is anyone who has not picked up this CD yet, it really is worth getting. I recently purchased it at Tower Records, and it is wonderful. Jason Graae's medley is worth the price of the CD alone.

    The performances are truly beautiful.
