Richard Sherman closes concert with most famous Disney park tune
It’s a song we know. It’s a song we cannot forget. It’s no small wonder that a concert celebrating the music of Sherman – as well as Alan Menken (see video of his performance here) – would end on a high note with “It’s A Small World.” The piece that brings happiness and joy to all – that is, unless we hear it on repeat if we are stuck on the attraction – is Disney at its best and Sherman at his most brilliant.
