This October 1, The Walt Disney Studios animated classic The Little Mermaid becomes a part of our world like never before as an all-new Diamond Edition release. To celebrate the return of the movie that gave voice to a whole generation, Disney has teamed up with the voice of a new generation, Grammy®-nominated music superstar Carly Rae Jepsen, to record a new version of The Little Mermaid’s beloved song ‘Part of Your World,’ which will appear as a music video on the upcoming Diamond Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack releases.
Canadian singer/songwriter and breakout pop sensation, Carly Rae Jepsen burst onto the scene with her Top Ten U.S. debut album Kiss and its global smash hit ‘Call Me Maybe,’ which held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for nine consecutive weeks and climbed to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in more than 47 countries, while her music videos have amassed over 600 million VEVO views. Jepsen won the 2012 American Music Award for Best New Artist and received two 2012 GRAMMY Award nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Her new single, ‘Tonight I’m Getting Over You,’ The Remix ft. Nicki Minaj from her Top Ten debut album Kiss is out now. Ms. Jepsen is set to dazzle our world again with an exciting new rendition of the classic ballad ‘Part of Your World.’
‘Part of Your World’ was written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman and originally recorded for the movie by American actress and singer Jodi Benson, who gave voice to Disney’s favorite underwater princess, Ariel. The song is a Broadway-style ballad in which young heroine Ariel expresses her desire to be a part of the human world.
In addition to the new music video ‘Part of Your World’ featuring Ms. Jepsen, The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a cavern of other wondrous bonus feature treasures. Viewers can experience the film in high definition Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray and High Definition Digital platforms.
