15 Musicians Performing A Disney Medley Is Musical Magic

For the past two years, Mike Votano and Ashley Carruthers have been Disney Cruise Line employees.

That meant listening to a lot of Disney tunes every single day. After some time, Votano decided to create an arrangement that mixed some of those tunes up. Oh, he also incorporated a 14-piece jazz big band.

"I just wanted to create some real music that made people feel happy," Votano told The Huffington Post.

The video above was recorded in January of 2014 in Sydney, Australia, and is a medley of the tunes from Votano's three favorite Disney movies: "The Lion King," "Beauty and the Beast," and "The Jungle Book."
