In the acceptance speech of the Tony Award winner, she said, “Right now I’m rendered speechless by this... This is a really big deal and it’s wonderful for all these princesses to be honored in such a wonderful way by the Walt Disney Company."
She also jokingly remarked that she was thankful that Linda Larken, the speaking voice of Jasmine can't sing or else she won't get the job.
Other recipients are as follows:
Jodi Benson (Princess Ariel, “The Little Mermaid")
Barton Boyd (Disney Consumer Products)
Jim Henson (creator of the “Muppets")
Linda Larkin (speaking voice of Jasmine, “Aladdin")
