Judy Kuhn and Jeanine Tesori Celebrate 20 Years of Disney's "Pocahontas"

20 years ago, the animated Disney movie musical "Pocahontas" opened in cinemas. A 2015 Tony nominee for her role in Fun Home, Judy Kuhn was the singing voice of the film's title character; her signature tune was "Colors of the Wind." To celebrate the anniversary, Kuhn sat down with a fellow Tony nominee — Fun Home's composer Jeanine Tesori — and sang through the Alan Menken/Stephen Schwartz classic incorporating many of the fun sounds an electronic keyboard can provide!
