R.I.P. Samuel E. Wright :

A sad week in Disney world, with the death of Samuel E. Wright, best known for his iconic work as Sebastian The Crab in the classic The Little Mermaid. Wright got to sing two of the greatest songs in the Disney songbook, Under The Sea and Kiss The Girl, the former of which won the Grammy and the Oscar for best song.

Wright also starred as Mufasa in The Lion King on Broadway, a performance for which he was nominated for a Tony. He also played Kron in the great lost Disney classic Dinosaur (not lost anymore now Disney+ is a thing, go give it a watch) and in live action he was Dizzy Gillespie in Clint Eastwood’s Bird.

Godspeed, sir, thank you for the magical songs!
