Tune In Tuesday: Aida

Today's song is "A Step Too Far" from the Disney musical Aida. This song is sung by three different characters: the princess Amneris, the slave Aida, and the soldier Radames. Radames and Aida are in love, but he's engaged to Amneris, so things are a little tricky here, and the three sing about, well, how weird life is and how none of them are really happy.

I have two versions of the song, and the women in both are played by Sherie Rene Scott and Heather Headley, but Radames is played either by Broadway cast member Adam Pascal or show composer Elton John. I prefer Adam, so you're getting this live version that the original Broadway cast performed on The View back in 2000.
