Aladdin’s current Broadway Princess Jasmine, Arielle Jacobs, takes lead vocals in the new music video for “December Feels,” a tune featured on Carols for a Cure: Volume 21, the 18-track holiday recording benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Check out the new song, penned by Angelo Soriano and Augie Haas, above.
Soriano told Playbill, “Augie Haas and I met when I joined the Aladdin cast as a swing five years ago. It’s a puzzle why we only recently decided to collaborate, but we’re definitely glad we did! We spent two weeks writing melodies, chords, and lyrics in Bryant Park, which is where we also decided to shoot parts of the music video for ‘December Feels.’
“We had a great time searching parts of the theatre district for our favorite holiday backdrops as I directed and choreographed the visual accompaniment for our song. I gathered some fellow cast members, musicians, and invited the Jazz & Contemporary program of Joffrey Ballet School to perform a public flash mob on the sidewalks of NYC.”
Aladdin continues at Broadway's New Amsterdam Theatre, where it opened in spring 2014.
