I'm interested to hear this! I haven't heard/seen any of Cassidy Janson's work but the other two artists are incredible vocalists and they've picked some fairly inspired songs to cover. I'm most looking forward to hearing their versions of "Seasons of Love" and "Falling Slowly". Hopefully they get the same sort of promo as Sheridan lined up although I think Amber is still on doing 'Dreamgirls' so her schedule may not be as allowing for it.

"One Night Only" and "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" are out there and "Seasons of Love" premiered on Radio 2 yesterday although it's not available online yet. I think that's actually my favourite of the three - I'd forgotten that Amber had actually performed it as part of Glee Cast way back when! Their voices actually work very well together on all three songs though.
