Musical Monday- “One Man Newsies”

So, I’ve been putting off posting my top ten live action Disney movies for a while because there are so many great movies.  One that is for sure in my top 10 is the musical “Newsies.”  I have always enjoyed the movie, and a few year ago my best friend took me to see the musical in Cleveland for my birthday, and it was terrific seeing it live!

The music for the 1992 movie was written by Alan Menken (He also wrote for The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Enchanted, and Tangled… can we say DISNEY LEGEND!!!).  The movie was adapted nearly 20 years later and released as a stage musical in 2011, and hit broadway in 2012.

The famous YouTuber, Nick Pitera, put together his own tribute to the amazing music from the Newsies.  His fame comes from not only his amazing vocal range, but his creative and unique videos in which he does ALL of the parts, yes even the female roles!  (He records multiple times with him singing different parts and then combines it for one amazing video!)  So without further ado, I give you- “One Man Newsies”
