(VIDEO) Watch fans of The Prince of Egypt musical perform "When You Believe"
Last month, the production team for The Prince of Egypt UK musical did a call out to fans of the show, asking them to send videos of themselves performing the show's most famous musical number, "When You Believe." The song is widely known for having won an Oscar when the original Dreamworks film came out, thanks in large part to the powerhouse, belting vocals of not one, but two pop divas: Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston.
After becoming overwhelmed by the response, the production team have put together a video illustrating their diverse and passionate fanbase. Check out the new Prince of Egypt "When You Believe" virtual choir sung by fans below.
