Grammy Award-Winning Harpist Serenades Neighborhood With Disney Songs

A Grammy award-winning harpist serenaded her neighborhood in Glendale, California, on May 20, playing ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight’ from The Lion King.

Footage uploaded to Twitter by her neighbor shows the harpist, Alison Bjorkedal, playing the Elton John song as part of a Disney repertoire.

Bjorkedal wrote to Storyful: “I’ve been playing the harp in my driveway for the past three Wednesdays, calling it a ‘Wednesday Wind Down’. Just 30 minutes of soothing music for neighbors and people walking the neighborhood. We took a vote this week via a QR code posted at the end of our driveway – ‘What would you like to hear, Disney or Beatles’ – and Disney won. So, I played a 15 minutes set of Disney favorites last night. The song in the video is ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight’ from The Lion King by Elton John.”

She continued: “I’m a Grammy-winning professional musician in Glendale, CA. Losing the ability to share music in live situations has been very difficult and sad, so this is my way to connect with others and hopefully spread a little joy and hope during the pandemic.” Credit: Ari Injeyan via Storyful
