Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles absolutely nailed “As Long As You’re Mine” from Wicked. She sang the duet with Wicked actress Annaleigh Ashford.
Jennifer told Billboard:
“I love it within the show. It’s such a beautiful moment where you get to see their romance really bud within all of this chaos that’s happening in her life. She’s trying to figure out what she wants to do and trying to escape everybody.
“I think it’s a beautiful moment for them and a really poignant moment. It sets up the arc of their relationship. And melodically, just from a music standpoint, it’s gorgeous. That [version] was what I was invited to do. Getting to sing with Annaleigh, who is amazing and has done such wonderful work on stage, that was an honor and a treat for me to get to sing with her as well on this song. You talk about a wonderful re-imagining of a song – I think it’s refreshing that it is two women.”
