If you love nothing more than an epic Disney sing-along, you’ll be pumped to know you’ll be in good company, as the likes of Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato are live-streaming classic Disney favourites.
American network ABC has announced a star studded line up will be joined by the casts from High School Musical, Descendants, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and Zombies to provide some fun and hope during a difficult time for all across the world.
All the stars will be performing from home during self-isolation and the classic song of choice will be ‘We’re All In This Together’.
We were a little disappointed when we heard star of HSM, Zac Efron won’t be involved in the performance as he reportedly couldn’t be reached in time but he will deliver a video message during the concert.
It’s been 12-years since the original HSM cast were together with HSM 3 rounding off the trilogy back in 2008.
Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel and Monique Coleman will all be lending their voices to the livestream which will undoubtedly delight fans.
Kenny Ortega, who is taking the lead as the special’s director told Deadline: “We couldn’t reach Zac until late but when we did, he immediately jumped in, of course”.
“Everyone we reached out to was quick – and you’ll see it in their spirit and the way they come together from their homes”.
“They recognise this as an opportunity to strengthen spirits for those joining us for the broadcast”.
Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment added: “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”.
The show will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest and is one not to miss.
Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato will be joined by Dove Cameron, Darren Criss, Josh Groban, Christina Aguilera and Elle Fanning who will all perform.
Michael Buble and Bobby Bones have even joined the ranks.
Buble will sing ‘A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes’ alongside Lovato from Cinderella and Grande will do a rendition of ‘I Won’t Say I’m in Love’ from Hercules.
Darren Kriss is set to perform ‘I Wan’na Be Like You’ from The Jungle Book – and who doesn’t love this tune!
Xtina will be singing ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight’ from The Lion King, while Josh Gad, Luke Evans, and Alan Menken will bust out ‘Gaston’ from Beauty and the Beast.
For Frozen fans, there will, of course, be a rendition of ‘Let It Go’ performed by Amber Reilly and Thomas Rhett will take on ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman’.
The special is also set to air PSAs with talent from across Walt Disney Television to raise awareness about Feeding America’s vast network and resources for people in the country who are finding themselves in unfamiliar circumstances and facing hunger for the first time due to COVID-19.
The Disney Family Sing Along will air on ABC on Thursday 16 April at 8pm in America.
And for fans here in the UK, don’t get FOMO – the production will also appear on both Twitter and YouTube after it airs stateside.
