During the film I have to say the moment that music hit and he danced down the steps it was utterly outstanding. Well someone on YouTube has created a whole music video to the song and I have to say it is the perfect choice for this weeks Musical Moment! Joaquin Phoenix is unreal in the leading role (check out my review here) giving a truly haunting performance.
I am super excited about the preview of Judy tomorrow night before opening on Wednesday. Judy Garland was a truly incredible performer and I thought this Monday why not have her incredible performance of Somewhere Over the Rainbow to try and lift everyone’s spirits!
I am going to see Les Miserables for the second time at the Theatre tonight having seen it in the West End a few years back. I am really looking forward to it as the UK Tour is the new production and will be starting in the West End later this year after the theatre has been refurbished.
One Day More is one of the most incredible songs so I thought for todays musical moment it would be the version from the 10th anniversary concert show!
Last night I found myself watching the 1994 version of The Lion King so decided todays musical moment would be Hakuna Matata . . . Mainly because on a Monday everyone needs cheering up right?
After seeing the Fabulous John Barrowman show on Thursday evening I just had to have today’s musical moment with John in it. Was a very tough choice to pick from so many amazing songs and the work he has done over the years. I have decided on I Am What I Am from his time in La Cage Aux Folles in the West End (I saw it before he took over from Graham Norton). This is clip is from the Paul O’Grady Show which used to air every night at 5pm, that was a good show! Plus the added fact that it is Pride Month! 🏳️🌈
Bon Jovi are my all time favourite band (EVER) and I am lucky enough to be going to see them for the third time on Wednesday in Liverpool at Anfield Stadium. Obviously I am super excited so thought it was perfect to then have It’s My Life as today’s musical moment! This is from the Crush album from 2000 and that is what really got me into the band, which were celebrating a huge comeback so I have always loved this song.
Especially years later for the music video when I realised that Blue Bloods Jamie Reagan (actor Will Estes) as that just happens to be one of my favourite tv shows!
Still totally loving the memories of seeing Hugh Jackman in Manchester the other week I thought today’s musical moment should come from The Greatest Showman and be The Greatest Show!
