According to The Hollywood Reporter, at Sunday's Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony (which focused on children's, lifestyle and animated programming), Menken won the award for best original song in a children's, young adult or animated program for Disney hannel's "Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure".

Menken has also won 11 Grammy Awards, mostly for the songs and records produced for the aforementioned films.

Ford said Friday he is consulting with legal experts to see if mandatory testing of migrant workers can be done. Stage 3 includes the reopening of gyms, indoor dining at bars and restaurants and many facial services.

Menken's far-reaching work for Disney has defined a generation of musicals, but it was his 1982 Off-Broadway collaboration with Ashman on Little Shop of Horrors that still resonates among theater fans. This means that Alan Menken has officially achieved EGOT status after he has been an active musician since 1972! He joins the elite group of winners alongside John Legend, Tim Rice, Rita Moreno, Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks, Mike Nichols, Whoopi Goldberg, Helen Hayes, Marvin Hamlisch, Mike Nichols, Robert Lopez, Richard Rogers, John Gielgud, Jonathan Tunick and Scott Rudin.

The honor is Menken's first competitive Emmy. Eden Espinosa and Hudson D'Andrea sang the song in the show's third and final season. Which is really a shame, as the series featured some real bangers, even though Menken purposely recycled his classic Disney sound in a satire of story book musicals.
