You know there are movies that you grow up with. Ones you watch over and over. Sing along and know every line in. They are our childhood. When we watch those movies as adults we get transported to that magical time and when we have kids of our own to share it with…..well it’s even more magical and special. You hear that voice and you see the red hair under water. You see Ariel using a dingelhopper aka fork in her hair. All those special moments come rushing back. So what happens when you get to meet the woman behind the voice? The REAL Ariel? Tears come to your eyes that’s what. All those memories come flying back. It’s even special to her as well:
So it was, it was just meant to be. You know. I mean there’s really no explanation except that God had a plan much bigger than I did, and beyond my wildest dreams because I was not even looking into voice over, or anything like that. It was Broadway, Broadway, Broadway. But again, it’s just, you know, it was just a huge, incredible blessing, and a huge surprise, and, and how it’s, you know, changed my entire life, this, this film, and this character.
And it was fun. it was really fun, but I just thought, okay, I’ll go back, and I’ll just do my Broadway shows, and life will just go on, but obviously God had another incredible plan, so it was really unbelievable when the premier came and all of a sudden it was, like, my family just went, like, why didn’t you tell us that you’d been part of this. And like, I tried to tell you that I was part of this thing, but you made fun of me. Um, and boy, you know, from that moment on it changed my life forever. So I’m so grateful to, to these two guys. I really am. So thankful for them…
I don’t get to tell them often enough in public, but J it is just really thankful, grateful to have this life changing experience because really it’s, it’s been a dream, a dream job. And I love it…
THEN THIS HAPPENED
I was in the back so I didn’t get a good shot, but just close your eyes and listen. You’ll get chills!
