The Disney Family Singalong was done last Thursday. The singalong was lined up with some of the biggest stars from Disney and others. The singalong was an hour-long event with 20 performances was a benefit concert to raise funds for Feeding America in supporting affected families due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was hosted by Ryan Seacrest right from his home.
Here are some of the performances from some of the stars in the Disney Family Singalong. The singalong was also streamed on Hulu. Most of the performances were done in the comfort of their homes as part of quarantine measures.
1.) Christina Aguilera
Aguilera chose to cover the hit Elton John single Can You Feel The Love Tonight, an original soundtrack of Disney's "The Lion King." Her part on the singalong was uploaded on her Facebook page. She covered the song for almost three minutes and it was done on her home. Aguilera covered the song in her trademark voice while still hitting the rhymes that Elton John put in the song. Her own flavor and the original tune of the music were a perfect combo. She even sang it while she was sitting on her couch.
2.) Ariana Grande
Grande covered I Won't Say I'm In Love, the soundtrack of Disney's "Hercules." She did not veer away from the origirnal melody but her sweet tune made it trending on YouTube. The performance was uploaded on ABC's YouTube channel. She covered it in a cute way that it is a little departure from most of her music videos. She appears to have used her cellphone or a basic camera. The editing of the song was done amazingly despite the camera's resolution. Grande also did her own voice backup.
3.) High School Musical
One of the highlights of the singalong was the reunion of the casts of popular TV movie High School Musical whose third part was showed on theaters. The cast performed one of the TV movie's OST We're All In This Together. The music video was a collage video of the casts who did their performances right in their homes. Zac Efron was not in the singalong but he offered an introduction, according to Seacrest as quoted on USA Today, as "hunkered down in the middle of nowhere with patchy Wi-Fi." Efron also sent a message to everyone that he hopes all are safe. The performances of the casts were like they are in the movie despite their videos being compiled all together. It puts a nostalgic effect both on the casts and on the viewers. The other artists included on the video were Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, and Raven Symone. The video was also on ABC's YouTube channel.
Other stars who performed on the Disney Family Singalong were Demi Lovato, Elle Fanning, Tori Kelly, Auli'I Cravalho, Josh Gad, and others.
Beyonce also had a surprise appeatance in the singalong. Beyonce joined the event because Disney's Chairman Bob Iger asked her personally to participate at the last minute.
