Grace Potter’s star continues to rise as the singer and longtime HT fave has told Rolling Stone that she will provide the voice for a character on the next installment of Prep & Landing, an ABC special produced by Disney/Pixar that will air later this year. According to Potter people shouldn’t get too excited as she doesn’t actually say a word, “My character mumbles and makes noises with her mouth – which is kind of awesome.” Awesome, indeed.
Potter also revealed that she has written her first-ever Christmas song titled Naughty, Naughty Children that will be featured in Prep & Landing. In other Grace news, the Vermonter joined Stevie Wonder, Rickey Minor, Sharon Jones at last night’s Global Soul concert at the Hollywood Bowl. You can watch the finale here.
