    I'm a big fan of Kellie Coffey, who sings the "Promise" song that plays after Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. I've got both her country albums (which I review here, if anybody's interested). Does anybody know whether she did any other work for Disney productions aside from "Promise"?

    If you look here on her website, it says:

    I don't know what they're actually referring to there, but Kellie is featured in the Believe...In Holiday Magic fireworks show at Disneyland.

    Opening Narration *
    Can You Remember - Kellie Coffey
    Mickey Mouse Club March (Fanfare)
    March of the Wooden Soldiers
    Toyland, Toyland
    The Dreidle Song
    All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth
    I'll Be Home for Christmas
    O Holy Night
    We Three Kings
    Joy to the World
    Silent Night
    Carol of the Bells
    Russian Dance (Nutcracker Suite)
    Arabian Dance (Nutcracker Suite)
    The Christmas Song
    Can You Remember - Kellie Coffey + Chorus
    Closing Narration *
    White Christmas - Kellie Coffey

    * Some believe Kellie may be the voice of the new narrator (the original narrator was an older woman) who took over during the 2007 holiday season.

    Does anyone have source audio for the 2007+ version of the show?

    She was featured in"luminaria".This was a show at DCA which didn't last very long.They adapted the music and lyics from this show for the "wintertime enchantment" show at Disneyland.This precedes the fireworks.
    I love "Promise",but I like "We Go On" even more.She did a great job on that.

    I love We Go On. It is one of my favorite Disney park tunes of all times. It makes me cry every time I hear it.

    Dang, I've got to hear this "We Go On!" I've got a crappy recording of "Promise" that I made with a cheap digital voice recorder in '04. That one almost brings me to tears every time I listen to it. For some reason "We Go On" doesn't ring a bell. Is it played during the course of the show or afterward?

    During. The best part. As the song ends with "We go on...," World Showcase Lagoon lights up with thousands of white bursts in every direction!

    I don't think that's Kellie. It sounds more like the lady they used for the second version of the narration for Imagine...A Fantasy in the Sky. If my memory is correct, she's also the current voice of the Blue Fairy.

    Kellie Coffey wasn't the original singer for Luminaria. Miriam Stockley was the original one, per her discography here: Miriam Stockley Discography. They then adapted the main theme song "Shine" for DL's "Wintertime Enchantment" show, and had Kellie sing the new version.

    There was also a CD put out by WDW a few years back called "Magic in the Streets: Parade Memories" that featured a 5-part "Suite of Dreams" that highlighted the 4 parks, plus the "Share a Dream Come True" theme song. Part 1 of the suite, "Fantasy," features Kellie Coffey on vocals. Portions of this track may sound familiar to avid DL fans since it was used as the theme for "Imagine," a short-lived fireworks show back in 2004.

    Hope you enjoyed that little bit of Kellie history. :wacko:

    The Blue Fairy/Wishes/Luminaria lady was the first voice for Imagine...Fantasy in the Sky. She lasted like a couple weeks and I was clutching my head groaning the entire time. =P Then the other lady replaced her for the rest of that run.. Was surprised to hear her again in Wintertime Enchantment and then as the new narrator for Believe in Holiday Magic.. I guess they like her or it was a nod to her narrating Luminaria which the Wintertime Enchantment portions use the theme from but...not a fan of her as a narrator =P

    I certainly did! I have that Magic in the Streets CD and never noticed her on there. I could never figure out what the Suite of Dreams tracks were from, but they're good.

    ^ The "Suite of Dreams" tracks were originally never used for anything. They were simply created as standalone musical pieces, much like the Suite that exists for TDS. The first time, to my knowledge, that they were actually used for a show was when DL borrowed the "Fantasy" one for its "Imagine" fireworks show.
