Last week BBC Radio 2 aired the fantastic Disney's Broadway Hits concert as part of their Friday Night is Music Night series (and you can still listen to the full show right here!)  I can't put into words how much I loved hearing this concert again, but now Sky Arts is going one better with a real Christmas treat for you!

Tomorrow morning Sky Arts will be airing Backstage with Disney on Broadway: Celebrating 20 Years at 9am followed by Disney's Broadway Hits at London's Royal Albert Hall at 10am!!  What a Christmas present!!

I can't wait to watch this again and again!  As someone who had tickets to see Tarzan but the show closed a month before I was due to see it, seeing Josh Strickland sing some of those songs in person was something I'd waited over 10 years for and he didn't disappoint.  Finally seeing Ashley Brown live was electrifying.  Hearing songs from Aida and King David live was something I never thought would happen.  The Aladdin finale with Trevor Dion Nicholas and the West End cast raising the roof and bringing the audience to their feet is out of this world.  And, of course, Alan Menken himself singing "Proud of Your Boy", dream come true.  This concert is truly magical so make sure you don't miss it!

Merry Christmas!
