Lea Salonga and Liz Callaway – I Still Believe

Two of rhe best singers in the world teamed up to pipe “I still believe” rhe wonderful song by Claude-Michel Schönberg,  Alain Boublil, & Richard Maltby Jr  from the musical Miss Saigon. Both ladies played a role.in the Broadway version of this musical but also did the singing part for Princess Jasmine. Liz did Jas in The Return of Jafar and Lea in everything else Jasmine needed to sing

Aladdin and Jasmine Medley

For a comparison of the singing voices of Lea Salonga in “Aladdin” and Liz Callaway in both sequels led to the creation of Aladdin and Jasmine Medley. The song is a mix of the three love duets from “Aladdin”, Return of Jafar and Aladdin and the King of Thieves.

The songs are mixed by either Federica or Gaia somewhere in the late 1990’s / early 2000. Both girls are from Italy and former active members of the Aladdin Mailing List.
As a matter of fact Federica was one of the earliest members there and she Gaia and Evi where best pals, both online and in real life I believe. Her friend Gaia joined the List sometime early 1999. The three ran The Animated Movies Archive from 1998 until it was left abandoned compactly in 2000. It’s been in its present state for almost 7 years now. And despite the lack of maintained the site still functions pretty well.

Anyway, while listing I was reminded of those old friends. I haven’t heard from them in years and hope they’re doing well. Chances are neither of them will ever read this post but if they do. Fede, Gaia, Evi hope you are doing well and sometimes think back at the good old days at the AML.
