Tammy Tuckey's Untitled Disney* Cover Album

Welcome to the official fundraising page for my passion project - an album dedicated to the music of the Walt Disney World theme parks!

Since my first trip to Walt Disney World in 1998, I have always been inspired by the performers, the shows and the music featured at the Disney theme parks. For my  very first album (set to be released Spring of 2018), I will be performing seven of my favorite songs from the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom parks.

*The goal for this fundraiser is to raise $10,000 that will be used to:

- Produce the entire album.

- Create the backing tracks for each song.

- P
rovide studio time to record vocal tracks & mix music.

- Purchase the rights, licenses and sheet music for each song.

- Compensate the background vocal performers for their work.

- Create the album cover.

- Produce a music video that will feature the Sounds of Blackness and Tammy Tuckey.

Not only that, but two of these songs will feature special collaborations with Ali Olmo ("The American Adventure," "Lilo & Stitch: The Series") and the Sounds of Blackness ("John Henry," "The Lion King").


In 1982, singer Ali Olmo recorded the Irving Gordon song "Two Brothers" that was featured in The American Adventure attraction in EPCOT. The song is still heard by thousands of guests at EPCOT, including its latest feature in "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln" at Disneyland.


35 years later, Ali will be revisiting this beautiful ballad for my album and recording a duet with me while being accompanied by Don Liuzzi, member of The Philadelphia Orchestra and original performer on The American Adventure soundtrack.

You can listen to my interview with Ali about her performance of "Two Brothers" here: www.thetiaratalkshow.com/interview-with-ali-olmo-singer-of-two-brothers-35th-anniversary-of-the-american-adventure

One of my favorite Disney animated shorts of all time is "John Henry," which features a spectacular soundtrack provided by the 3-time Grammy Award-winning vocal/instrumental ensemble, Sounds of Blackness.

We will be working together to record our own rendition of the Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration theme song, "Celebrate the Future Hand in Hand," with the prospects of filming a music video if we reach our fundraising goal of $10,000.
