Disney Snags Nine Grammy Nominations

If there is one thing that Disney knows how to do really well, it is to write one heck of a catchy tune. From classics like “Under the Sea” and “A Spoonful of Sugar” to newer hits like “Let It Go” and “How Far I’ll Go”, there are just too many great Disney songs to name. Disney can also write fantastic scores that evoke a number of emotions from viewers and truly draw them into what they are watching.
