I got really excited, and then saw that reg won't be writing the lyrics... But I'm still really really excited!!! This is amazing. I think it's a cool next step for her to take.

I wonder if the songs will be musically more like The Call, or 20 years of Snow... Smiler

Also, I wonder if she'll get to write all of the instrumentation! I think she'd be an amazing orchestral composer...

So many questions!!

I would agree Kate. If this goes off well, it will propel her to the forefront of elite muscians....a double edged sword....but I would be so proud and happy for her....

Same here! I wish they'd use her lyrics b/c I'd love to see the "stories" she'd come up with with Sleeping Beauty as the theme. But this is still awesomesauce Big Grin
