Regardless, Ariel found the occasion suitable as an ideal backdrop against which to perform this shimmering track, and in the spirit of sibling rivalry, had no problem using the personal footage of his sister’s big day for his own performative statement.
**Sidenote: As Ariel opted for a speech at the ceremony over a musical number (no doubt due to the ever-strangulative pressures of showbiz) one might infer this as an apologetic wedding gift… but that would be quite presumptuous.
