Dreams and Disney: Covering Cinderella

“Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true”
A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes, Cinderella 1950.

As I had mentioned in the Disney Medley article, there are so many magical songs within Disney movies that keep a kind of nostalgia for decades after their initial release.

One such movie is Cinderella, which was released over 60 years ago! Though, the soundtrack is still loved to this day! The original soundtrack includes classic songs such as “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes”, “A Visitor/Caught in a Trap”, “The Kings Plan”, “Little Dressmakers”, “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo”, “So This is Love”, “The Stroke of Midnight”, “Locked in the Tower”, and “I’m in the Middle of a Muddle”. altogether these melodies create a soft atmosphere for a soft fairytale movie.

Of all of them, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” is the most popular and well-known songs from the Cinderella movie. Thus, why this article is focusing on it.

Here are some amazing covers of the ever so sweet song, “”A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes”.

AnnaPantsu’s cover of “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” combines French and English lyrics resulting in a fairytale lullaby. Her vocals and the soft instrumentals are soothing.

This cover of “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” is unlike many of the soft covers in this article. Shakey Graves gives it a gritty bluesy sound that contrasts the softness of the Disney Princess.

Thomas Sanders, an American singer, actor, scriptwriter and well-known Viner, covers “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” with a deep and jazzy voice, accompanied by pianist, Jacob Fjeldheim.

Bianca Nelwan provides a beautiful cover with gorgeously soft vocals keeping true to the soft sound of the original Disney princess.

This cover is an amazing genre shift in this rock Disney cover. Thomas Traverso provides amazing deep vocals and rock instrumental to the originally soft Disney song.

David Choi‘s jazzy cover of “”A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” is simply and utterly fantastic. It’s complete with Dylan Wilson on upright bass, Mike Cottone on trumpet, and David Greiman on piano.
