You may not recognize that name but you have heard of the Little Mermaid.
She is noted for providing the singing & speaking voice of Disney's Princess Ariel in the Little Mermaid and it's sequels. She also has been in Toy Story II, Flubber, Thumbelina, Enchanted and a number of Broadway shows.
Andrea had a solo part in the musical and got to know Jodi. Our granddaughters, Emma & Olivia were asked to come back stage before the show to meet her. They were so thrilled to meet the "Little Mermaid" that they love to watch. She was so kind to both the girls and even singled them out from the stage while she was performing. They were a little embarrassed and loved it at the same time.
Here she is with the girls before the performance.
Andrea joined in for this snapshot.
Andrea said she was so wonderful on stage, talking about not caring if she was politically correct about saying/not saying, "Merry Christmas." She made no bones about it that her faith is in Jesus and she is celebrating His birth. She said it was just a wonderful weekend, and she was so ecouraged and thankful for the kind of woman she is in the entertainment world!
