The Prince of Egypt has released a music video featuring a brand-new song by Grammy® and Academy® Award-winner Stephen Schwartz, Footprints on the Sand, performed by Luke Brady who plays Moses. The new stage musical, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell), a book by Philip LaZebnik (Mulan, Pocahontas) and based on the celebrated DreamWorks Animation film, begins performances in February 2020.
Composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz said: “Footprints on the Sand is a new song that Moses sings before he has learned his true identity. Despite the fact that he thinks he’s a rich and carefree Prince of Egypt, there is something at his core that longs for more.”
The Prince of Egypt features 10 brand-new songs (including Footprints on the Sand) written by Stephen Schwartz, together with 5 of his acclaimed songs from the DreamWorks Animation film, including Deliver Us, All I Ever Wanted, Through Heaven’s Eyes and the Academy Award®-winning When You Believe, which was a global hit for Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey as well as a UK and Ireland chart-topping winner’s single for The X-Factor.
