Today (Jan 21), JJ Heller released new music with “Do-Re-Mi” from The Sound of Music. Heller shares on social media,
I love The Sound of Music so much.
Have you ever thought about how clever Do Re Mi is? It’s literally a song written about music. And on top of that cleverness, it also marks a lovely part in the film when Maria teaches the children what it means to laugh and play.
In The Sound of Music, Do Re Mi spans the length of several scenes and lasts about five and-a-half minutes, so our challenge was trying to figure out how to condense it so we didn’t have a forever-long version. The other challenge was learning how to sing it as myself instead of doing my Julie Andrews impression 🤣, but I think I did it!
In the end, I think we came up with something that honors the original but is distinctly I Dream of You. I also LOVE how this one showcases the the British boys choir! ❤️
Heller began releasing monthly singles in April 2017 that together have amassed over 55 million combined streams to date (through August 2020). The songstress will continue to announce a brand-new song on the first Friday of each month.
