Michael Bolton - Go The Distance (Kalimba Tab)

Go the Distance is a 1997 classic Disney song, originally featured in the classic movie, Hercules, and performed by the legendary Michael Bolton. Written by David Zippel and Alan Menken, the lyrics of the inspirational track have become a fan-favourite in the decades since its original release. For fans of Michael Bolton, it can be hard to reconcile that the powerful, soulful voice from the Disney movie is from the same man who has seen much success with more modern, pop-influenced music. But that is exactly the case, and Go The Distance is an excellent example of this.

So what is it about the song that has made it so widely loved? It's a beautiful track, with inspirational lyrics that capture the spirit of Disney, and a stunning vocal performance that showcases Bolton's incredible talent. The key to its success is the classic message of courage, strength and perseverance that it conveys.

Go The Distance has been recorded in multiple keys and versions, by a variety of different artists. Cover versions include those by Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, and Lea Michele, to name a few. The song has also had a resurgence of popularity with the advent of karaoke, and its popularity shows no signs of waning. With its life-affirming theme, stunning vocals, and stunning visual accompaniment, Go The Distance is a timeless Disney classic that with the tab below you will be able to play it on the kalimba.
