I grew up watching the Smurfs so being able to sing on this new animated feature with my girls was a bit nostalgic. There really is hardly anything else that brings me so much joy than to be able to record with my girls. It was a full, 8 hour day of recording, so when the studio teacher would call for the kids, four other women and I would record little bits here and there in the interim. Emily even got a little melodic solo in the opening scene! Ahhh… It’s not easy doing a step out solo in front of your peers with the composer standing right in front of you, but that girl has got nerves of steel! She pulled through like a trouper and I couldn’t have been more proud.
