A ‘Glee’ful Medley

Matthew Morrison, most famously known for his role on the hit series, “Glee” is also no stranger to Broadway. He’s a Tony Award nominee, and reminds the world that there is more to him than the Glee club with his latest tracks.

“Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters/ Rocket Man” is a fantastic duet with the great Sir Elton John. It is a medley between a Morrison song, and a John classic, which makes for a great soft rock adult contemporary ballad. Both male vocals intertwine with grace and perfection. This collaboration will prove that Morrison will continue to have a musical career outside of the Glee club, and that Sir Elton John is timeless, spanning generations. Rocket Man’s infusion with Mona Lisa’s and Mad Hatters is creative, and definitely hits a high note.

“Summer Rain” is a fun, pop track that is will remind you of Jason Mraz’s sound. It has a fun hook, and a very catchy chorus. This sounds like it could be a playful summer anthem this year. Its a great tune that when played, will bring you back to the memories of a summer love, a cool breeze, and of course, the rain.

Overall, Morrison not only has acting chops, he’s also got a voice. His tracks are currently available on I-Tunes. Morrison can also be seen weekly on Fox’s hit, “Glee.”

About Maria Sica 52 Articles
Maria Sica teaches Middle School English, tutors college students, and has recently completed her Master’s Degree in English Education at Brooklyn College. She loves keeping busy, yet does not mind the occasional moments when she can catch up with a good book wrapped in a fleece blanket, and drinking a cup of tea (which may sound boring to her friends and boyfriend, but she doesn’t care). She has always loved to read and write at an early age. She will be the first to admit that she is a nerd-and loves anything sci-fi such as the X-files. She is also a fan of Harry Potter and Spongebob Squarepants, and counts them as her favorite Heros next to Wonder Woman and Marty McFly. However, unlike most nerds, she can’t do math if her life, or yours, depended on it.
