Featuring the exclusive new single performed by Kelly Clarkson 'Breakaway'. A soundtrack fit for a queen (or a princess)! This must have soundtrack to the highly anticipated movie sequel features exclusive new songs & unreleased tracks by today's hottest teen artists! Plus, includes the singing return of Julie Andrews, found exclusively on this CD.
The soundtrack to Disney's 2004 Cinderella sequel The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement
offers a wide variety of young Disney stars (Raven--who has a small part in the movie--Lindsay Lohan, Jesse McCartney, Christy Carlson Romano), hot vocalists (American Idol
's Kelly Clarkson, Norah Jones), and head-banging rockers (Avril Lavigne, Pink). The best tracks are Clarkson's "Breakaway," Raven's "This Is My Time," Renee Olstead's Norah-esque "A Love That Will Last," and "Your Crowning Glory," a duet between Raven and Julie Andrews. It's not a flashy showcase for Andrews, who begins it in a half-sung, half-spoken style before Raven joins her to a funky beat. But just hearing the beloved film and stage star sing at all after the problems she's experienced following botched vocal-cord surgery in the late '90s... well, it might just bring a tear to your eye. --David Horiuchi
