The Song: "Proud of Your Boy"
The Artist: Adam Jacobs as Aladdin on Broadway
Where you heard it first: I can't remember exactly when I first heard this song, but I imagine it was sometime around when the musical first opened in 2011. As one of the new songs for the stage musical, it was heavily featured in the publicity for the show.
Why it’s been stuck in your head: Last week, I downloaded the entire Original Broadway Cast Recording and have been listening to it nonstop since. This song is really a great song and showcases Adam Jacobs' voice and amazing Broadway pipes. It's songs like these that make the stage musical that much better than the original Disney film.
Why you recommend it to our listeners: If you're a Broadway nerd like my co-host and I are, I highly recommend not only this song, but the entire Original Broadway Cast Recording, especially if you're a fan of Disney. This song is great and will make anyone a fan of Adam Jacobs.
