Disney's Princess Tiana Talks About How 'Almost There' Is The Most Inspiring Song Ever

If you’re as obsessed with Disney’s The Princess and the Frog as JJJ is (see here and here for the proof), you know that “Almost There” is the stand out song from the film.

Anika Noni Rose, who voiced the beautiful Tiana, has opened up about the importance track and how she identified with the song.

“The song, to me, really was all of what the movie was and all of what my life was,” she shared with LA Times.

“I felt like I knew this girl. I grew up in a small town without anybody who did the thing that I wanted to do. Where a guidance counselor told me maybe I should learn a trade. I understood being somewhere where nobody else understood what it was I wanted to do,” Anika continued, revealing her real connection with Tiana.

Anika continued, stressing how the song still makes her feel and how it can inspire every little kid everywhere.

“There are two ways to take that song,” she says. “You can be almost there and be sad about it. Or you can be almost there and find the joy in the journey, and the joy in the steps that you have taken, and the joy in how far you have gone.”

“Sometimes you’re not quite touching it yet, but the fact that you have gotten yourself until the point that you are almost there means that you only have a couple more steps to go. Those steps may be be years or days or minutes and you never know. But there is a joy to knowing you’re going to do it.”
