'The Lion King' Visits The Grove
CC and I definitely felt the love at The Grove last Friday, when members of the Las Vegas cast of "The Lion King" musical took the stage alongside the FAME Church Choir of Los Angeles.
After making a lion mask of her own (left) and snacking on a PB&J on the nearby lawn, CC was more than ready to catch some summertime tunes.
Performers Buyi Zama (who plays Rafiki), Kissy Simmons (Nala) and Jelani Remy (Simba) sang "Circle of Life," "Shadowland," "Endless Night" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight." They weren't in costume, but I can imagine how crazy that could have been to organize for a couple of 20-minute performances. In Los Angeles. In July.
I'll let the video speak (er, sing) for itself. But in the meantime, now CC and I want to go to Vegas. Like, stat.
