  • Davis has a fine, smoky tenor voice. His final solo at the end of the second act (of The Phantom of The Opera) is one of the best performances of the role that I have ever seen

    Chicago Sun Times
  • The gamut (Davis) portrays during the final scene is masterful

    Oakland Press
  • Derrick Davis as Mufasa is also strong vocally, and his fatherly song to his son, “They Live In You”, is excellent.

    The Sun Chronicle
  • Davis has a deep and resonant voice, particularly well-suited to his role as the great warrior king.
