Act One Finale: "Morning Glow" from Pippin, by Stephen Schwartz
In Pippin, our title character, after falling into his step-mother's evil plans, has killed his father, the King. Pippin is now King and "Morning Glow is here at last." By the way, so are the amazing option-ups on the word "here" in the song's final chorus by the amazing singers of this song.
Matthew James Thomas
3:51 - "Morning Glow is here..." - see what we told you? Brilliant.
Original Bob Fosse realness. Love the tone of Katt's voice.
Michael Arden and Tyrone Giordano
A thrilling Deaf West production with two incredible Pippins. Arden's "at last"... hold onto your hats.
Vocals. For. Days. Friends - at 2:30 he sings up the octave and we maybe rewound it two or three times to listen again.
The In My Life dance captain is pure sunshine. Love his "past due"'s right at the top of the song.
Pure vocal goodness. "The Voice" winner joined the Broadway revival company for a beautiful Broadway debut in the title role.
Michael Lee Brown
We get two amazing songs! The Dear Evan Hansen star mashed the Pippin tune with "For Forever."
We love the groove of this cover. There are delicious riffs throughout but one of our faves is at 1:23.
