Do I have any Mariah Carey fans!?! This is awesome! Disney JUST announced today that multiple GRAMMY Award–winning superstar Mariah Carey has recorded and produced the song, “Almost Home,” for “Oz The Great and Powerful,” the studio’s highly anticipated fantastical adventure, directed by Sam Raimi!
I wonder if Mariah Carey will attend the Red Carpet Screening next week?! For those who haven’t kept up, Disney invited me to attend and interview the cast in L.A.! I am counting down the days!
“Almost Home” will be released as a single on February 19, 2013. Award-winning photographer/director David LaChapelle will direct Carey in the music video for “Almost Home.” The two long-time collaborators are reuniting in what LaChapelle describes as “a duet between Mariah and the movie.”
“‘Almost Home’ has a message that works beautifully with the film,” Mariah Carey says of the song she co-wrote and co-produced for “Oz The Great and Powerful.” “It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.”
