Adorable LDS father-daughter duo create music video for Disney


The internet’s favorite father-daughter duo have once again created magic, but this time the music video takes place at the most magical place on earth — Walt Disney World.

Claire Ryann — who turned five earlier this month — and her dad, Dave Crosby, sang “A Whole New World” for one of Disney’s new music videos on its YouTube channel.

“This is the most grown-up Claire’s voice have ever sounded to me,” Dave Crosby said. “I was sitting in the studio listening to her record the song and I was blown away.”

The Crosbys spent two days filming at Walt Disney World in Orland, Florida: the first day was filming the two performing in front of Cinderella’s castle and the second was filming the family on rides.

Prior to the filming at Walt Disney World, the Crosbys recorded the music at home. In the behind-the-scenes video, Dave Crosby explains their “high tech” studio, which is the walk-in closet. Claire said she brought a light into the closet to “make it fancier.”

“We like to record in the closet because there are lots of clothes to dampen the sound so it doesn’t echo,” Dave Crosby said.

The father-daughter duo began recording songs together when Claire was just 3 years old in order to spend more time together. They recorded “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid,” which now has more than 15 million views on YouTube.

Earlier this month, Dave Crosby received three chair turns on the Blind Auditions for “The Voice.” Before he chose his coach, Claire joined him on stage to sing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” Ultimately, he chose to be on Adam Levine’s team.
