Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s Audiobook of “The Little Mermaid”


Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s Audiobook of “The Little Mermaid”


Calling all Mixers: Leigh-Anne Pinnock has narrated a new adaptation of “The Little Mermaid” on Audible, and it’s going to be your new obsession. Available to listen to from today, the Little Mix star is re-telling the original story by Hans Christian Anderson, which has been adapted by writer Dina Gregory. The star has added some embellishments from her own experiences woven into the story, and hopes that fans can “see themselves in” the audiobook. “My hope is that people like myself can see themselves in this story too and I’ve enjoyed retelling this tale to my own children already,” Pinnock told her followers on 23 March.

Taking to Instagram to celebrate the news, Pinnock shared a stunning, Lensa-style image of herself looking the part. Channeling her inner Ariel, the mum-of-two donned an elaborate shell tiara and marble-patterned gown for the promo image. “I’m so excited to be narrating the original Hans Christian Anderson version of The Little Mermaid exclusively for @audible_uk 🧜🏽‍♀️,” she told her 9.7 million followers. “Dina Gregory is such an incredible storyteller; reading her adaptation truly made me feel seen in a story I’ve been so familiar with as a child. There are so many themes within this now iconic storyline that feel so familiar to my own life and so my narration was inspired by not only my experiences but also my culture, my heritage,” she wrote.

Pinnock’s audiobook release comes just weeks before the release of the live action film of “The Little Mermaid” with Halle Bailey, which marks the first time a Black actor is taking on the titular role of Ariel and has sparked a conversation around representation and diversity in the media.

Given her rise to fame in the three-piece girl group and her soon-to-be solo career, it wouldn’t be right if her version of “The Little Mermaid” didn’t include at least some music. But fear not, the audio book includes original vocals from the likes of Anaiis, Kersha Bailey, Sairah Rowe, and Nadine Samuels. We can’t wait to be Part of Your World, Pinnock.
