Action Movie Solos are awesome

Can I tell you about something very exciting that happened to me recently? In a session for an upcoming action movie, we sang through this giant stack of music, and at one point towards the end of the session, we had begun to out-sing the orchestra. So we started to sing everything a cappella! There were literally just a few minutes left in the session when we got to the last cue.

Disney Epcot Center Sessions

What a thrill to meet and sing for Don Hahn, the producer of Disney’s animated film “Beauty and the Beast”. Disney’s Epcot Center is opening a new attraction where the guests and sing along to a shortened version of the movie. I was hired for my “kid voice”, but also got to use my “mommy voice” and “dramatic teenager” voice. It was a super easy, fun session and was thrilled to be a part. (That height difference though! Ha!)

Disneyland Paris

Got to sing on some special attractions for Disneyland Paris. We did both a Halloween song —”Are You Brave Enough” with lots of key changes and yummy crunchy chords— as well as recording several Christmas songs for a guest sing-a-long. My first gig back from the tour and it was awesome to have my best friend Baraka there with open arms!

I love getting to share in a “first” with my friends. Especially when they are as smart and talented as my buddy Alexander Lloyd Blake, AKA “Alex”. I love seeing my friends succeed! Looks like Blue Sky animation has another success on it’s hands. Some of the the vocal cues were pretty intense. Plus, it’s always fun to see my name, “Mo Do” in the lyrics… ha!
