Morning Start: The Lion King soundtrack

Your morning start for Monday, April 11

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! Let’s get your week started.

Fun Fact: ABBA was supposed to work on the soundtrack for the original ‘The Lion King” in 1994. They weren’t able to work on the film because of scheduling conflicts. The film got Elton John for the soundtrack instead…pretty good trade-off.
