YOU SHINE || #MUSICMONDAY

Well hello again! 
It has been a while since I last uploaded a post but just like I have said before (whoops), it will change. 
My school exams are over, school is over...forever (!!) and my HNC graded unit is in alongside a mammoth sized essay. This means I can finally relax and do what I love to do, BLOG...and watch YouTube Videos. XD

Jumping right in this week - as you may or may not know, I am obsessed with musicals. Especially Wicked. However following Fiyero's footsteps (In this case Derek Klena) I've now watched the 2012 Revival of Carrie: The Musical about 4 times now which has lead me to paying the soundtrack constantly (Linked at the end).

This weeks #MusicMonday is one of my favourite songs from the musical...


'You Shine' -  By Tommy Ross and Sue Snell (Portrayed by Derek Klena and Christy Altomare)



(Video above is only available on some platforms so click here to access it if it isn't showing)

'You Shine' is one of the new songs that have been added to the musical during the last several years of intense workshop in which both the musical and book were revised.

Incase you have never seen Carrie: The Musical, it is a musical (obviously) adapted from Stephen King's novel Carrie with added music by Michael Gore and lyrics by Dean Pitchford.
Carrie focuses on an awkward teenage girl, called Carrie White, who discovers she has telekinetic powers. She lives a lonely life which is dominated by an oppressive religious fanatic mother. When Carrie is humiliated by her classmates at prom, she wreaks havoc and anger on everyone and everything in her path.

Though I have not read the book nor watched any movie adaptions of it, I have seen the 2012 Off-Broadway revival of it many times now and think it is really well written and preformed. However, I wish the severity of the destruction wasn't so...severe? The ending left me really disliking Carrie White - though loving the musical.

I hope you liked this weeks #MusicMonday,  I will see you in a few days with another post, but until then...
