Disney Actress Sings “A Whole New World” With Polite Drunk Folks in a NYC Bar


Lea Salonga, the singing voice of both Jasmine and Mulan, reprises her Oscar winning singing performance not just for, but with, an entire bar of folks who adorably hush up so she can sing her part of the duet. Apparently this happened within a subway stop of our office about a month ago, so maybe we should get out more.

    Why yes. Yes it is. There’s another video where he introduces Lee and she sings “On My Own” as he plays.

    When the crowd kept shushing themselves with long, droning “sssshhhhh” sounds, I’m reminded of the scene from Blackadder when he’s trying to get his drunken friends to hush:

    Blackadder’s entourage: “Shhhhhh,” “Shhhhh,” “Shhhhh.”
    Blackadder: Yes, I said, “Please give me silence” not “Drench me with dribble.”

    Lea and Darren once met on a plane to the Philippines and have been friends ever since.
