Year 5 and 6 Summer concert

Please practise the songs below ready for a performance in the Summer term 2019, which will take place at the school's Open Evening in July:
We will be starting these songs soon, so we have plenty of time to learn them properly, like we do with Rayleigh Lights. I would like to get beyond a general sense of the words and work on diction, intonation, posture, expression and phrasing. My hope is to help year 5 and 6 to communicate these songs from their heart. With such a large number of children, we should be able to get a very good sound. Thank you very much for your support.

As a starting point, here are some links below for you to practise at home (songs will be sung from memory):
If you wish, you can copy and paste these links into View Pure which will strip out any adverts. (I tried to include the links here within Viewpure.com but they did not work as a direct link).

How far I'll go  from Disney's film, Moana, 2016, composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, sung by American actress Auli'i Cravalho, also recorded by Canadian singer Alessia Cara.
This link has lyrics, supporting tune and also signing (we may look at signing in class but it will probably be too complex to use these accurately in the performance)...

A Million Dreams from the film The Greatest Showman, 2017, song composed by American songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

If the pitches of these songs in the links are too high or low, please do not panic. I will do my best to find the most comfortable vocal range for the backing tracks, which may mean I record some on the piano if necessary. Please also bear in mind that the vocal range for some pop songs is quite wide and we will just have to manage.
