Lost City Sessions

So grateful to be singing in large groups again! Fox has really stepped it up to meet COVID protocols. We singers will gladly jump through the hoops to be singing back as a group again! So proud of my friends Fletcher Sheridan (and sidekick Jarrett Johnson) for contracting this killer vocal choir for the soundtrack.

Spiderman 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.

Spies in Disguise Sessions

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!

Working on Olaf’s Frozen Adventure was a blast. There’s so much we got through in this session, it was so exciting to see all of the parts that made it in. I got a few neat solos like the one for the lady who sings “Well… we hang up bows of evergreen on every single doorway.” Plus, a little duet I did with my best friend Baraka. We’re both little kids, I’m the older sister and she’s the younger brother who sings, “Eight nights in a row we light the menorah on our mantle,” and it’s even possible that there’s a little Monique kitten at the end… ha!
