This week, we had a fantastic conversation with a pair of extremely talented musicians you may find on your next Disney Cruise. Sonia & Paul, also known as Soul Duo, join us to discuss the details of their lives together and their wonderful music. They also share their experiences as Disney Cruise Line entertainers and what they're up to during these "stay-at-home" times.

They even bless us with a couple of beautiful songs!

They, also, just happened to be aboard the Disney Wonder with us during our very interesting West Bound Panama Canal sailing. You know, the one that we told you about a few months ago when all this craziness started. Well, they were performing onboard during that trip. So, we're sure they'll have some fascinating things to say about that cruise, as well!
