Circle of Life free piano sheet music by Elton John
About the song
"Circle of Life" is the name of a song composed and played by Elton John, featured on a Disney animation movie called "The Lion King".
Written by Tim Rice, the song has been initially interpreted by singer Carmen Twillie alongside Lebohang Morake in the start of the animation.
The version interpreted by Elton John was slightly modified into a pop song, performed alongside a gospel choir, namely the London Community one. This specific version was later used as part of the movie’s soundtrack.
A theatrical version of the movie animation features two acts, the first one beginning with the character named Rafiki, who sings "Circle of Life". The musical continues and ends with a choir, this act presenting the crowning of the new animal prince.
The second act of the theatrical version presents a fight against the character named Scar, in which the lion prince wins and becomes the accepted and respected king. After the victory roar from Simba, the act ends with a dance from the female lions, which presents the "circle of life", with the added event of Simba’s son’s birth.
"Circle of Life" was recorded again in 2003 and included on the Disney Channel Circle of Stars and has also become the theme song for Disney’s Animal Kingdom located at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Charting since 1994 to 1995 on more than 10 charts, "Circle of Life" has topped the Canadian Adult Contemporary charts and has also been in the top five of the Belgium charts, the Canadian Top Singles charts, the Netherlands charts, the Swedish charts, as well as the Switzerland charts and last, but not least, it has seconded the US Billboard Adult Contemporary charts.
"Circle of Life" is an interesting song created by the famous Elton John, which has risen to new heights due to the Walt Disney enterprise.
