Follow the Bouncing Mickey with “The Disney Family Singalong”; Premiering on ABC April 16
If you’re missing the good old days of Disney Sing-Along tapes, you’re going to want to tune in to The Disney Family Singalong, a new Disney musical special for ABC slated to launch on Thursday, April 16 at 8:00 PM.
According to Deadline, the singalong will feature celebrities and their families as they belt out Disney tunes from home, including Christina Aguilera, Kristin Chenoweth, Luke Evans, Erin Andrews, Bobby Bones, Michael Bublé, Auliʻi Cravalho, Jordan Fisher, Josh Gad, Derek Hough, Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba, Little Big Town, Kenny Ortega, Donny Osmond, Thomas Rhett, Amber Riley and John Stamos.
Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment said about the upcoming show:
“If there’s something that we’ve all learned in the past few weeks, it’s to cherish every moment and the importance of connection, whether through laughter, stories or music. We hope that we can help create some new unforgettable moments in everyone’s home in a way that only the magic of Disney can.”
If you’re familiar with the old Sing-Alongs, it’ll follow a similar pattern, with an animated character to guide the on-screen lyrics. Songs from Disney classics like Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Toy Story will be playing along newer favorites like Frozen, High School Musical, and Moana.
The show will also help raise awareness about the resources that Feeding America is providing to people who are facing hunger due to COVID-19.
