I have to admit, this is a song I'm not familiar with. That said, below the break you can feast your ears upon the Lullaby Version of "Defying Gravity" - a song from the Broadway musical, WICKED. This version comes from LULLABY VERSIONS OF BROADWAY Volume 1, which will be released simultaneously alongside Volume 2 on April 16, 2013 as a part of Roma Music Group's popular Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star series. These albums will feature a combined 20 songs from Broadway hits like THE LION KING, LES MISERABLES, MAMMA MIA!, RENT, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and CATS - all reworked into nursery-friendly instrumentals. Broadway for Babies?
