When You Wish Upon a Star, A Singable Picture Book
Posted August 29, 2011on:
A gorgeous new Singable Picture Book was just published:
Publisher’s webpage for “When You Wish Upon a Star”
This beautiful book includes the song’s wonderful introduction which is not often heard or sung.
The book includes a CD with folk great Judy Collins singing the song, but she speaks the introduction and does not sing it…
Neil Diamond came through with the introduction in this video, you can use the video to sing along with the book.
Glen Miller’s band does not play the intro, but this is a terrific recording:
“When You Wish Upon a Star” was written for the great Disney animated feature, PINOCCHIO.
Informative wiki article about the song, here:
