ON RECORD: Chantel Riley's Five Favorite Cast Albums- 'I LOVE Every Song on This Album'

BroadwayWorld is excited to bring you our latest weekly series- ON RECORD. Ever wonder which Broadway tunes have inspired your favorite performers? Check back every Tuesday to find out which cast recordings have made an impact on Broadway's brightest stars.

In this week's edition, we hear from Chantel Riley, who is currently starring as 'Nala' in The Lion King- playing at the Minskoff Theatre. Read on to find out her top five picks!

1. The Lion King

Not because I'm biased (haha), but because I haven't heard a Broadway album heavily influenced by African music like this one.

Buy it today at Amazon or iTunes.

2. The Wiz

Just one word: "Home!" Dorothy in The Wiz is definitely a dream role for me.

Buy it today at Amazon or iTunes.

3. Motown

This album is great because of all the old school hits by legends like Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye. So its great to hear the cast's renditions of these already classic hits.

Buy it today at Amazon or iTunes.

4. Les Miserablès

I love this album because of the passion that is felt in every song. Each song has been written so beautifully and is so nice to listen to, especially "One Day More."

Buy it today at Amazon or iTunes.

5. The Color Purple

Simply put, I LOVE every song on this album. SO GOOD!!

Buy it today at Amazon or iTunes.

Broadway Debut! I'm excited to be given this opportunity after having my first audition and theatre experience that landed me the role as Nala in The Lion King Germany. Dreams do come true! Thank you Jesus for continuing to be faithful and keep me strong. Family and friends I love you and thanks for your support and prayers. @chantel_riley,
