21 years ago tonight, AIDA opened at Broadway's Palace Theatre.
We have made no secret of how big of a fan we are of the Elton John / Tim Rice scored musical which starred Tony Award winner Heather Headley, Adam Pascal and Sherie Rene Scott. Early last year, musical theatre fans were blessed with the announcement that the Disney On Broadway musical was going to be launching a national tour directed by original Aida cast member Schele Williams following a premiere at Paper Mill Playhouse. We aren't sure what's next for this musical but in the meanwhile, we are always ready to write about this show.
One of our favorite songs of the show's score is the ever famous romantic duet between Aida and Radames "Written in the Stars." We have found 9 incredible performances of the song that are bound to make you swoon. Let's YouTube Spiral, yeah?!
Heather Headley and Adam Pascal
Our hearts are beating so fast! How we love Heather and Adam and those two magic voices together! Their chemistry!!
Brittany Wallace and Luke Barry
Two years ago this beautifully performed duet was part of The King's Academy production. The duo are so phenomenal!
LeAnn Rimes and Elton John
This music video is very fantastical. We will say this, of course Elton and LeAnn sound great but we love the beautiful gospel moment 3:23 - 3:37
Heather Headley and Chris Mann
This video is a love fest and we can't get over the absolute joy and happiness radiating out of both of them. The riffs are also A+++.
Simone and Matt Bogart
We are absolutely swooning over Matt Bogart. Simone's voice is absolutely divine. Talk about chemistry!
Ana Milva Gomes and Drew Sarich
Yes this is in German, yes the vocals are amazing. Drew Sarich's intensity! Push play!
Genevieve Penn and Blake Ewing
You might remember Blake from Full House and The Little Rascals. He's still singing and sounds better than ever along with Genevieve!
Tai Lewis and Brandon Albright
Radames is in jeans but his vibrato is amazing! When singing with Tai (shout out to 2:43-2:46), it's glorious!
Nichi McFarlane and Jonathan Quier
This is community theatre!? We heard Nichi start singing and had to check! Fabulous performance by the two!
