Okay, so I'll try to write an article. As much as I love Disney, one of the things that I am most attracted to in a movie is the music, and of course you have to have a good singing voice for that. So this article is just of my Top 10 favourite Disney Singing voice (the title is a big give away ^^). Oh, if you happen to hate the Hunchback of Notre Dame, I suggest you don't read this! Also, this is only for characters that speak. There are lots of voices through (usually) End Credit Songs that would be in this list if they actually had been characters.
Just missed the cut: Belle (Paige O'Hara), Cinderella (Illene Woods) and Aladdin (Brad Kane)
10. Aurora (Mary Costa) - Sleeping Beauty
Aurora (Mary Costa) has a beautiful singing voice. It is so graceful and passionate. Her voice seems to echo and she hits higher notes than I could ever dream!
I wonder, I wonder, if my heart keeps singing will my song go winging to someone, who'll find me, and bring back a love song to me!
9. Madellaine (Jennifer Love Hewitt) - The Hunchback of Notre Dame 2
You either wouldn't know Madellaine, or wouldn't think that she sang. Well, Madellaine is from The Hunchback of Notre Dame 2 (a movie that I actually happen to like) and Jennifer Love Hewitt is her voice. She doesn't sing during the movie, but Madellaine sings the end credit song "I'm gonna love you", and I fell in love with her voice the moment I heard it.
Is it just a lucky day, that he turned to look my way, or is it heaven right before my very eyes...
8. Jasmine/Mulan (Lea Salonga) - Aladdin and Mulan
Jasmine/Mulan weren't origionally in my top ten, Ariel was. But, I just watched "Part of your World" and then I watched "Reflection". I realised that Lea Salonga has such a beautiful voice. It is enchanting and gentle, and I just love it! But, out of Jasmine and Mulan, I'd have to say she did a better job at Mulan, though I love both!
I’m like a shooting star, I've come so far I can't go back to where I used to be/I will never pass for a perfect bride, can it be that I'm not meant to play this part?
7. Tiana (Akita Noni Rose) - The Princess and the Frog
Tiana just has the most amazing voice! The other night I was watching The Princess and the Frog, and Tiana's voice (when speaking) is pretty, but as "Almost There" came on, this gorgeous flow of words just comes out of her mouth. Akita Noni Rose (Tiana's voice) just has the most amazing voice!!
Trials and tribulations, I've had my share, but there ain't nothing gonna stop me now 'cause I'm Almost There!
6. Esmeralda (Heidi Mollenhauer) - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Yes, it's true, Demi Moore is not Esmeralda's singing voice, Heidi Mollenhauer is, and if you don't believe me check the credits of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. "God Help the Outcasts" is, personally, the saddest Disney song, and Heidi does it wonderfully! I know that sounds weird, but she has a beautful voice, and her last note, I don't know anybody who can sing like that! She has a very passionate voice, but all I know that she does is sing Esmeralda's part and be a waitress at some cafe. I hope that she takes a singing career, she'd be great at it!
I ask for nothing, I can get by, but I know so many less lucky than I...
5. Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) - Tangled
Before I say anything, NO Tangled is not a Classic Disney Movie, but this article is for my favourite Disney Singing voices, and Tangled is Disney.
Yeah, those of you who know me would have expected to see Rapunzel in here, but it's not just because I love Rapunzel that she's here. The fact is, Mandy Moore just has an amazing voice!! It completely took me by surprise when I saw Tangled, because I have heard Mandy sing before, and she sounded nothing like I'd heard before when she was playing Rapunzel. I love it!
All those days, watching from the windows, all those years, outside looking in, all that time, never even knowing just how blind I've been
4. Flynn Rider (Zac Levi) - Tangled
Yeah, I know, another Tangled character, but it's the last, and besides, he has one of the most amazing voices I've ever heard! If Mandy took me by surprise, Zac astounded me. I've seen him on a few T.V. show's, and when I heard him sing I was like "Okay, that is NOT Zac Levi, I wonder who Flynn's singing voice is..." but it was Zac who sang for Flynn, and he was awsome!! Not so much in "I've got a Dream" he was funny, but not amazing in that, but in "I see the light" he blew me away! And I just had to add, isn't Flynn's picture adorable!?!
They mainly happen somewhere warm and sunny, on an island that I own, tanned, rested and alone, surrounded by enormous piles of money!
3. Clopin (Paul Kandel) - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Yes, Clopin is in the article! You just can't not put him in, he is AMAZING. I know I keep using that word, but there isn't anything else I can think of to describe it! But, because it's Clopin, he's "Super Amazing". It is a miracle that Paul Kandel can sing as high as that. Plus, I just love his voice. "Bells of Notre Dame" "Topsy Turvy" "The Court of Miracles" and "Bells of Notre Dame Reprise" are the songs he sings in The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and I had to list them because they're so "Super Amazing". I bet no one else on the entire planet can hit his note at the end of "Bells of Notre Dame". It's just so "Super Amazing".
Justice is swift in the Court of Miracles, I am the lawyers and judge all in one, we like to get the trial over with quickly because it's the sentece that's really the fun!
2. Pocahontas (Judy Khun) - Pocahontas
Yeah as "Super Amazing" as Clopin's voice is, he couldn't beat Judy Khun. I don't really know how to describe her voice. Just Beautiful, Mesmerising, Sweet, Gentle, Unique, High and unlike any other voice I've ever heard. Judy Khun definetly has the best female voice I've ever heard.
The thing I love most about rivers is: You Can't Step in the Same River Twice, the water's always changing always flowing, but people I guess can't live like that, we all must pay a price, to be safe we loose our chance of ever knowing
1. Quasimodo (Tom Hulce) - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Yes, Quasimodo won. I hadn't watched The Hunchback of Notre Dame in years, and when I did...wow. That's all I can say. When he started singing in "Out There" I couldn't believe how wonderful his voice was!! Then in "Heaven's Light" his voice changed totally from the "excited, wondering, fun" voice to a "gentle, romantic" melody! I was amazed. And in the sequel, again, wow. "An Ordinary Miracle" is one of my favourite songs!! Tom Hulce just has the best voice I've ever heard. That's right, better than anyone I've ever heard, Quasimodo, The Hunchback of Notre Dame" has the best voice!!!!
Just one day and then I swear I'll be content, With my share, Won't resent, Won't despair, Old and bent, I won't care, I'll have spent one day OUT THERE!
