Congrats are in order for Chloe x Halle member #HalleBailey for officially becoming a part of the Disney world. The singer has been a clear front runner from the beginning although executives have been conducting auditions with other talent. “After an extensive search, it was abundantly clear that Halle possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence and substance” says Rob Marshall, the director.
Halle is going to join an amazing cast, including #MelissaMcCarthy who may be playing Ursula. They will bring back all of the original songs from the 1989 animated hit as well as new songs that will be incorporated along the way. Ariel will follow the same story line as she is seeking to find love with a real prince on land.
Chloe x Halle is known for their amazing covers of Beyonce on YouTube. They were discovered by the #QueenBey herself and opened up for her on her Lemonade Tour. They have been signed to Parkwood Entertainment and can be seen on the television show #Growish, featuring #YaraShahidi and #TrevorJackson. We can not wait to see this young black queen take over theaters as she plays the classic Disney princess.
