• Ponycon NYC Announces Lena Hall for Next Month's Event

    Good news for all of you (and us) heading to Ponycon next month! Lena Hall is apparently going to be joining in on the action! A new press release has announced her for the event.

    Head on down below the break to check it out!

    Tony Winner and Grammy nominee at Ponycon in February

    A special musical performance will take place at Ponycon that will include Tony Award winner and Grammy nominee Lena Hall.

    Hall voiced a pony character in the most recent season of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic television show. The character “Countess Coloratura” (a.k.a. Rara) is a singer performing her first ever concert in Ponyville. Likewise, this is Lena Hall’s FIRST My Little Pony convention appearance.
    She will perform “The Magic Inside,” a song she sang in the show’s 5th season. Others performing at that event include more singing voices of My Little Pony including show star Ashleigh Ball (the voice for Rainbow Dash and Apple Jack) Peter New, Vincent Tong, Ingrid Nilson, Andrew Francis, Shannon Chan-Kent and Kazumi Evans.
    Singer Lady Aria Phantasy (opera and music from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic television show) and The Shake Ups in Ponyville will perform their MLP-inspired tunes which are a kids favorite.
    Taking place February 13th, 14th and 15th Ponycon is an all ages, inclusive fan convention with programming for children and families as well as Bronies (teenage and adult fans of the show).
