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.


William Katt


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.


Aaron Tveit


Vocals. For. Days. Friends - at 2:30 he sings up the octave and we maybe rewound it two or three times to listen again.


Jonathan Groff


The In My Life dance captain is pure sunshine. Love his "past due"'s right at the top of the song.


Josh Kaufman


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."


Gabe Violett


We love the groove of this cover. There are delicious riffs throughout but one of our faves is at 1:23.


Henry Platt


Courtesy of the Harvard Westlake Choir, another Platt has a gorgeous voice in the family!
