You Could Be More (Dollhouse Excerpt)


PDF score

You Could Be More is the fifth song from my musical dollhouse; a social satire about beauty standards. As the main character sings about the world around her she slowly comes to the realization that people don't have to live their lives in a predetermined way and that there is more to life than being beautiful. Pianist: Jesse Bonaventura Vocalist: Anna Chicco
