Halle Bailey fans were gifted with a special performance during Sunday’s episode of American Idol. Dressed in an aqua blue gown, the singer delivered a live rendition of The Little Mermaid track “Part of Your World” from a stage at Disneyland, set in front of the Magic Kingdom castle and illuminated with blue lights. She says it was her first time singing the song since she filmed the movie.
“first time singing part of your world live since filming. thank you @AmericanIdol for giving me the chance to do so on stage at disneyland,” Halle wrote on Twitter. “singing vocals in freezing cold weather at 3am while park is closed is no joke but we did it! only 11 more days until you all can watch the film!”
“Part of Your World,” now available on streaming platforms, is one of many songs that will appear in the film, which also stars Jonah Hauer-King, Daveed Diggs, Awkwafina, Jacob Tremblay, Noma Dumezweni, Javier Bardem and Melissa McCarthy.
The Little Mermaid and its accompanying soundtrack are due out on May 26.
