Career[edit]

He was in that production for four months before changing to Stephen Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George, in which he acted alongside such stars as Bernadette Peters and Mandy Patinkin. At the age of eleven, Kane participated in the "Very Special Arts" festival, a series of benefit concerts for disabled children's charities, which gave him an opportunity to sing for then First Lady Nancy Reagan in the White House and at the Kennedy Center.

Kane has appeared in many commercials and has been appeared in such programs as Law & Order, One Life to Live, Guiding Light, Search for Tomorrow, and Sesame Street. He has also been a host on the Nickelodeon series Rated K Update and has been the assistant conductor of an interview program called Girl Talk In theatre, his credits include the role of the young Lucius in the Public Theater's production of Titus Andronicus, and two roles in James Lapine's Lincoln Center production of The Winter's Tale. He provided the singing voice of the character Aladdin, opposite Lea Salonga, in the 1992 film of the same name, as well as its sequels.

In 1993, he played Arpad Laszlo in the Broadway revival of She Loves Me. He also played Tucker Wells in the season three episode "The Prom" of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and provided Jonathan Levinson's singing voice in the episode "Superstar". On September 11, 2005, Kane was invited to a ceremony at Hong Kong Disneyland, the night before the theme park's opening. He performed the song "A Whole New World" from Aladdin with Lea Salonga. As Caleb Kane, he released the song "This Close", which was played on the movie Devil's Pond. Then in 2004, he released his website with a message board to promote his album "This Day In History" with the first single "Go Mad", released in March 2006. Caleb has two versions of the video of this single, and also another promotional video for "In Your Own Way", a song that was played on the show The Black Donnellys.

His first album, This Day in History, was released on July 1, 2008.[1] In Fall 2008, he joined the FOX science-fiction series Fringe, as a writer and co-producer.
