With multi-platinum recordings, Broadway shows, Disney Animated Films, Television scores, and a teaching and lecturing career that spans the nation, David Friedman is truly someone who has made a major mark in all areas of show business.
After spending several years conducting musicals on Broadway, including Grease, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Song and Dance, David went to Hollywood where he was the conductor and vocal arranger on such Disney classics as Beauty & The Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. This led to David writing music and lyrics for Disney's Aladdin and the King of Thieves, scoring three animated television series (Happy Ness, Sky Dancers and Dragon Flyz) and the film Trick, and a 13-year stint as music supervisor and vocal arranger of Broadway's Beauty & The Beast.
David's multi-platinum selling song "Open Your Eyes To Love" was featured on the soundtrack of The Lizzie McGuire Movie and he wrote the opening song for Disney's sequel to Bambi, (sung by Allison Krauss) which was released to record-breaking sales.
David is a feature on the Today Show - Everyone Has a Story. And David was commissioned by Sharon Diaz LPC, LADC to write the original theme song - I'm Your Healing Melodee for Melodee Roo & The Wantoks Too! Letters For Grieving Children Like You. Six of his songs are included in the letters.
All songs are sung by Sara Vincent, whose beautiful voice brings soothing reassurance to a sad heart. She is a wife, mother of twins, and a para-professional for students with special needs. She is Sharon Diaz's niece and the cousin to Chris, whose death inspired the creation of Melodee Roo & The Wantoks Too! Letters For Grieving Children Like You. Her friends call her the Queen of Disney Quizzes because of her love of all things Disney.
