Ep86: Something Special

Feb 10, 2016 | Podcast episode, Podketeers

In this episode: In this episode of #Podketeers Mario gets new hardware, Kirstin Maldonado of Pentatonix shows off her amazing voice in a new Disney medley, we test Apple's new Music Memos app, and talk a little about Disney's AP Days at the parks.

Kirstin Maldonado joined Vocatave and Jeremy Michael Lewis to perform an a cappella arrangement of ‘I See the Light’ from Tangled, ‘You’ll Be In My Heart’ from Tarzan and ‘Go the Distance’ from Hercules. It’s a beautiful arrangement that you can listen to below. Leave us a comment telling us what you think below.

We also talked about how a lot of people know ‘A Whole New World’. Check out this video of Heyzen singing that song with complete strangers last year on Disneyland’s birthday while riding the Monorail.

Apple’s new Music Memos app is a cool new app that creates background music according to your own tempo to help you take musical notes. Check out the video below:
