Callaway sang the Academy Award nominated song “Journey to the Past” as the singing voice of the title character in the animated feature “Anastasia” and is also the singing voice of Princess Jasmine in Disney’s “Aladdin and the King of Thieves” and “The Return of Jafar.” Other film work includes “The Swan Princess,” “Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars.”
