The new compilation We Love Disney is finally here and features spectacular covers of Disney classics including Gwen’s beautiful take on The Muppet Movie‘s “The Rainbow Connection”.
When approached to be appear on the album, Gwen was asked which Disney song she would like to sing, she chose “The Rainbow Connection” since she’s always had a “special connection” to it. Gwen admits that she avoided the offer for awhile since she was overwhelmed at first when choosing a song. She shared that she first saw The Muppet Movie when she was a little girl and the soundtrack was huge in her family while growing up. “When I had my babies, I used to sing this song to them.” Gwen says that the song is still very special to her. “…to find something that was so part of my life and has a meaning for me is a dream come true”.
Gwen also joins in alongside the album’s other artists on the Disney classic “It’s a Small World” which appears as the closing song on the album. We Love Disney was produced by David Foster and released by Walt Disney Records.
