VIDEO: Marty Thomas and Marissa Rosen Release 'Somewhere That's Part of Your World'

Broadway luminaries Marty Thomas (Wicked, Xanadu, The Secret Garden) & Marissa Rosen (Kristin Chenoweth: For The Girls), have released a new musical theater mashup pairing The Little Mermaid with Little Shop of Horrors. "Alan Menken and Howard Ashman wrote iconic musicals with songs that have shaped the course of not only contemporary theater, but the soundtracks of our lives." Said Thomas. Arguably the title tracks of each film, "Part of Your World" and "Somewhere That's Green" are eerily similar in both melody and orchestration. "Taking the two songs and finding the common through-line only seemed natural," says Rosen. This mashup is a follow-up release to their debut duet record "The Award Winning Holiday Album", also on Candy Cane Records. Their latest single is available now on iTunes and all streaming media platforms. Marty and Marissa just released the music video for the song today which you can watch below!

Marty and Marissa are widely known as Broadway best friends and have been performing together for over ten years. They are often adding harmonies together, to prominent projects in the cabaret/concert world and in the recording studio. Last year they were heard on Jessica Vosk's debut album "Wild And Free" on Broadway Records. They met performing in the off-Broadway musical "The Big Gay Italian Wedding" and parlayed their natural report into a very successful nightclub act. Their music, much like their live cabaret act, pairs comedy with music and dares to offer a smile and a positive outlook on life.

"Somewhere That's Part of your world," was produced by Thomas and Yasuhiko Fukuoka, with vocal arrangements by both Marty and Marissa. The artwork was provided by popular Instagram cartoonist @slightlywobbly. Follow Marty and Marissa on Instagram @MartyandMarissa.
