Alan's thoughts
Tim Rice and I had worked on 2 projects together before “King David”. He had come in to help complete the score to “Aladdin” with me, after Howard Ashman’s passing. He did the same, when we brought “Beauty and the Beast” to Broadway.

In each case, the new songs we wrote together were a tremendous success; songs like “A Whole New World”, “If I Can’t Love Her” and “A Change In Me”. So, when the Jerusalem 3000 committee approached me about writing a musical to commemorate King David, to be performed at The Sultan’s Pool, outside the walled city of Jerusalem, it was a perfect opportunity for the first Menken/Rice musical.
