Get ready to head under the sea with Carly Rae Jepsen. The singer will be part of the Blu-ray release of Disney’s classic The Little Mermaid, set to hit shelves this fall. Carly is recording a new version of ‘Part Of Your World,’ the signature song from the 1989 film.
During an appearance on Good Morning America on Friday (June 14) the Canadian popstar was asked how she felt about being tapped to record the beloved tune. “Incredible, when they asked me,” she said. “Right away, I was like, I’m going to finally have an excuse to dye my hair red! This is great!” (Now we know the reason for Carly’s transformation back in May!)
In the original version of the animated feature, the song was sung by actress Jodi Benson, who also voiced the lead character Ariel.
And a big bonus for fans of Carly: A music video of her performance will also be included on the disc.
