Halle Bailey as Ariel in The Little Mermaid is something that we can’t wait for. We think that she’s the perfect person to play Ariel.
This past week, Melissa McCarthy was on Watch What Happens Live and was asked about the live action movie. One of the fan questions was about the music (which we 100% wanted to know about too).
From Melissa McCarthy‘s point of view she’s amazing.

“First, I’ll say, I’ll be killed for anything I say,” she said when starting to answer the question.
“Secondly, we were on set and they just started playing Halle’s version of the song. I had a truly, really, not weird reaction, just overwhelming. It’s so beautiful and it’s from such a place, like it’s just different.” she added.
“That girl has got roots down and like she sings from her heart, and when I heard it, there were like seven of us that just burst out crying because we had not heard it. It’s really, she’s a remarkable young woman, in every moment. How she is on set, how she is as a person, and I burst out crying and then now, I realized I was like, now she’s just thinking there’s a really old woman in front of me crying and this is weird. I couldn’t keep it together.” she said.
Such kind words. We can’t wait to hear Halle sing. We can’t wait for The Little Mermaid.
