Music Monday: Colors of the Wind
One of the most beautiful songs from the Disney song library is "Colors of the Wind" from the 1995 animated movie, Pocahontas. It was written by Stephen Schwartz (lyrics) and Alan Menken (music). In the movie, actress Judy Kuhn, was both the speaking and singing voice of Pocahontas. The segment was so uplifting and hopeful. A cover was recorded by Vanessa Williams that became a popular single on the radio. The music video incorporated scenes from the movie.
The song went on to be nominated for both an a 1995 Academy Award (Best Original Song) and Golden Globe (Best Song Written for a Movie) and would go on to win both awards. It is a beautiful song that captures the movie's spirit. We are all bound to together in someway since we all live on the same earth.
