Claire Ryann Crosby may only be three years old, but she's got a voice that'd surely make Ursula jealous. A few weeks ago, Claire and her father released a music video of the young starlet singing "Part of Your World" from Disney's The Little Mermaid. Claire's father, Dave, recorded and edited the song while his daughter supplied the vocals. Apparently, they had the idea for this video when her father was getting an oil change. In a recent interview with KSL, Dave said that he was at the counter paying and when he "turned around (Claire) was singing ‘Little Mermaid’ in the lobby while everyone had their phones out recording her.”
The Little Mermaid tells the story of Ariel, a mermaid princess who longs for a life beyond the sea that she's grown up in. It premiered in 1989 and received overwhelmingly positive reviews. In fact, some credit The Little Mermaid with reviving animation at Disney and sparking a period known as the "Disney Renaissance." Today, it remains a favorite among veteran Disney fans and newcomers alike. According to her dad, "Part of Your World" is Claire's "favorite pre-Frozen era song."
This music video definitely has us excited for whatever Claire decides to sing next. Perhaps she'll take on Pocahontas' "Colors of the Wind," or a duet of "A Whole New World" with her dad. No matter what she sings next, one thing is certain, Claire should plan a trip to Ellen soon.
