Tony Award winner Anika Nani Rose chatted with eonline about her role as Princess Tiana in Disney‘s new film the Princess and the Frog. "It’s the most thrilling thing, it’s been a dream of mine since I was a little itty-bitty person to be a Disney voice", Rose said.

Speaking about the fact the film marks the debut of the first African-American princess Anika says: "It’s pretty amazing. For me, it means even so much more, because I have a nephew who is only 3 years old, and I will be the first princess he sees." The speaking and singing voice of Tiana also hopes the film will get great media exposure from a screening at the White House.
