After Come Little Children and This Is Halloween, Simone posted a new cover on her YouTube account. This time, she picked “Part of This World” from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”. Vocals were mixed by Oliver Palotai, and the video director is Jens de Vos.

This beautiful song has to be one of the main reasons why I am in the music industry today. I remember watching “The Little Mermaid” and falling in love with all of the songs, and in particular “Part of Your World”. It is without a doubt one of my childhood anthems. I can finally show you my cover version of the immense popular “Part of Your World”. I hope you like my version of the song.
– Simone
