  • i really wish i wasn’t too tired that day! i really wanted to watch this live! 
Richard M. Sherman and Alan Menken: The Disney Songbook

Also known as, one of the best concerts I will ever experience. There is nothing quite as phenomenal as seeing the men who composed such special and beloved music performing live, and it is a memory I will treasure always!

The event started on time and went one full hour later than planned. I don’t think anyone minded. A lot of the audience got very emotional, and I don’t think you could blame them!
