Beloved Disney Composer Alan Menken Just Launched His Own Website And It’s Amazing
If you’re a fan of composer Alan Menken (and chances are if you’re Disney fan you probably are) then we’ve got some exciting news. Alan Menken took to Instagram this week to announce that he’s created his own website and trust us when we say it’s an absolute treasure trove of awesome Disney music!
You can check out his official post here:
The website is absolutely beautiful and as you can see from Menken’s comment above has already been nominated for a Webby award! Stunning in its simplicity, you can explore awesome videos featuring many of Menken’s most noteworthy songs including, “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid, “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast, “Suddenly Seymour” from Little Shop of Horrors, “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas, “King of New York” from Newsies, “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin, “Go the Distance” from Hercules, and many more (he’s got a lot of classics)!
The thing we love most is that Menken has 42 projects that you can check out on his site ranging from familiar Disney films like Hercules to TVs Tangled, The Series to the more obscure Lincoln. But one thing is for certain, they are a fantastic way to spend the time while at home!
Menken has also been busy during social distancing. He made a noteworthy performance on the Disney Family Singalong where he accompanied Josh Gad and Luke Evans for an incredible rendition of Gaston. A few weeks before that, Menken also appeared on the Rosie O’Donnell show where he took fans through some of the incredible highlights from his career.
We thought it was worth sharing with you again to give you a flavor of some of the songs you’ll want to check out AlanMenken.com.
