This Singer Picks a Guy From the Crowd to Join Her For a Duet. She Didn’t Expect Him to Sound Like This!!!

Jared Young has been dreaming of playing the role of Aladdin for over 20 years. Jared’s love for the arts began as a young child singing and dancing along with his seven siblings. His musical career began at age 16 when he toured Europe as lead singer for teen pop sensation T-MINUS FRIDAY. Eventually, Jared auditioned for the role of Aladdin at Disney’s California Adventure. He made final cuts two years in a row. Unfortunately, he wasn’t chosen to become a cast member either time, and quit auditioning. Four years later Jared went to Lea Salonga’s (Disney voice of Jasmine) concert. She picked a volunteer to join her on stage to sing ‘A Whole New World’… Enjoy and share this wonderful video, and DREAM BIG!!!


I can only imagine how happy Jared was at the moment when Lea had picked him. There’s nothing more exciting for a fan than to perform on stage with the favorite musician or band. These days Jared stars in Off-Broadway musicals. His most accomplished work so far has been starring on the Green Day’s International tour ‘AMERICAN IDIOT’. If you are not familiar with the name Lea Salonga, it’s ok, you definitely know her work. She provided the singing voice of two official Disney Princesses: Jasmine in ‘Aladdin’ (1992), and Mulan in ‘Mulan’ (1998) and ‘Mulan II’ (2004). Lea starred in the lead role of Kim in the musical Miss Saigon, for which she won the Olivier, Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics and Theatre World awards. She was the first Asian actress to play the roles of Éponine and Fantine in the musical Les Misérables on Broadway. Lea Salonga is the first Filipino artist who signed to an international record label (in 1993). She is also the first Philippine-based artist to have received a major album release and distribution deal in the United States, and one of the best-selling Filipino artists of all time, having sold over five million copies of her albums worldwide.
